You would not do this if have ever witnessed what they do to you.

I'll donate my liver. They could use it to run the microwave oven in their break room.

Nope. I'm such a freaking bitchin' anomaly of awesomeness that any research done on me would just skew their results.

Roll tide.

Selling organs is a lucrative business. However you need a lot of air to play them.

We are already registered in KU's Willed Body Program.

let me think. should i donate my organs to someone who, more than likely, didn't take good enough care of their own so now they need a transplant?

should i give someone my organs because they were: A) an alcoholic who developed cirrhosis B) an intravenus drug user who shared needles and contracted Hepatitis B/C C) someone who had unprotected sex and contracted Hepatitis B/C? D) someone who ate whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted while never exercising

thanks, but no thanks. i'll pass on this one.

i'd be more than happy to donate my organs if i knew that the people receiving them actually deserved them (children, victims of disease who had no way to prevent it, people w/ birth or genetic defects, accident victims, etc).

I have chosen to donate any organs anyone can use. Both my parents donated their bodies to KU med. and as I grow more worn out will consider donating my body to KU med. I hope people keep their hearts open to donating organs. If you do it now then your family doesn't have to decide when something happens. You might do a living will at the same time, indicating your feelings about treatment, Spares your family hard decisions at a hard time. I have an aunt who lost her son and had to decide right away. She said it helped her later to think by that decision she possibly spared another family the heart ache from loss. She is a wonderful person and her son was a great guy.

I have chosen instead to donate all my organs for transplant, but both my grandparents donated their bodies to medical research. I respected them for that.

Absolutely. If they can rummage around and find something that still works, have at it.

They would probably say 'No, thank you'. Maybe Hill's Pet Foods.

Once I'm done with it, they can use whatever they want. The transplant team gets first crack, then use whatever's left for research.

Yes definitely. I've already signed up with KU Med to donate my body when I die. I don't have life insurance so I'm determined not to leave the kids a big funeral bill.

It looks nice on paper, but when you've seen hospital constantly calling and harassing a new widow with questions and requests mere moments after her husband's death, it kind of gives you a new perspective on the whole thing.
