I just went to get my health card changed now that I'm almost older and they asked if I wanted to donate my organs when i die. I said I would and signed the sheet, but ended up having second thoughts. I know it's a good thing to do, but the thought of it bothers me. I'm contemplating on reversing it since I can until it's my birthday. What do you guys thing about this? Would you do it?

inb4 "I wont be needing them"

and yes, I did have second thoughts, but I'm too lazy to change it.

You won't be needing your organs. Why the fuck wouldn't you donate them?
Tonight I kill your fucking face.
I killed your face.

I don't give a shit; I can't imagine I'll need them.
Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us - if at all - not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

i personally don't think it should be optional
what do you need organs for why you're dead?

Your dead why do you need them. Once again youll be dead.

You don't need to reiterate one sentence, mang.

I've thought about it but never gotten around to it because I'm an asshole.

I personally saw it this way. Say I was dying, god forbid and the doctors saw I was a donor. What if they let me go because they saw I could help others who needed it. Thats my bizarre fearful theory.

No. If I'm dying, someone else isn't living for it.

exactly
"The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted."

As far as I know, no doctor would let someone die just to harvest their organs. It's against their oath, and other doctors would probably intervene if they saw such a thing happening.

That's not quite how it works.
Even if they did let you go, you'd be about to die anyway.


Isn't it better to die knowing that your death could save countless lives?

why would you feel weird about it?? :S


Thinking about being cut open, even though I am dead. It's just bothers me a bit but hey, that's just me.

They only take your organs if you are healthy. The doctors won't let you die to give someone else a chance at living. The only thing that could get you is if you need all your organs to continue on in the afterlife.

I'll be donating everything but my heart and eyes...


I have an attachment to them, and it feels emotionally weird to give them up...

**** my lungs, kidneys and liver though.

I mean if I could be saved, but they didn't for the sake of others.

Countless? I am not an infinite source of kidneys, bro.

It's your choice, nothing wrong either way. Personally I chose to be a donor. My thoughts are that I wouldn't need them and it would maybe give someone else a chance to live or even improve their quality of life.

Cool oath, bro.

Unless you are in the room when he dies, you don't know. There are a lot of things people in a respectable profession are supposed to do, but when it comes down to it, its all what they SAY they did. Like a police officer who said he read you your rights or asked for your consent. You don't know if it is fact unless you were there.
