    I am an organ donor. I can not understand people that are not. What selfishness.

    Sam - Some folks will not donate on religious grounds. It involves the belief of the second coming and the resurrection of the deceased. While I respect that belief, I don't happen to share it the way they do.

    I am a donor. Always have been.
    I've taken a vow of poverty. To annoy me, send money.

    Well Batch I have a back that is totally deroritaed to the point that I cannot walk very far so I am in a wheelchair. The doctors cannot determine what all is wrong with me and I have a really crappy heart no not just hard hearted so that is why I have made that decision.

    Default Such an amazing idea!

    The wait for a new kidney can take years. One donor began a chain of donations to people desperately in need.

    Have any of you seen the Will Smith movie, 7 lbs? That was a "different" type of movie. I liked it.

    I have been an organ donor for years (more than I care to think about). The Louisiana drivers license has an organ donor mark on the license itself which is laminated so there is no danger of it coming off.

    Absolutely! Even though much of my body is adversely affected by stuff I did in my misspent youth and later (can't donate blood - malaria), I'm sure there are many parts that can be used.

    Donating your body to science usually means it will be used in the cadaver lab at a medical school to be dissected by medical/dental/nursing students in their anatomy classes.

    That is a worthy cause but not what most folks think about when they donate their body's to science. For the most part being an organ donor will save more lives.
