...do you have strong opinions for or against?

Is it religion that stops most people from wanting to do this? Or superstition that planning for 'after death' in anyway is going to somehow bring about it sooner? Or is it simply fear of discussing/thinking about death?

Your opinions or thoughts.

Hmmm good question...all I know is that I would love for people to benefit from my organs once I've popped my clogs.

Better get signing them donor cards then ladies. They can take whatever they want from me apart from my eyes.

good topic! my sister and i were just discussing this recently. i think organ donation is remarkable. i plan to donate as well. i am a little uncertain on donating my eyes, like becky...maybe because it is on the exterior and a defining characteristic of how we look? it's kind of weird. i know i won't need them and no one will ever see them again, so i will probably just do it. even if you have a defect in any organ, they can still use them for research. great idea.

This is a hard one for me as i don't know if i would like my organs to go to someone else but helping someone else would be good.....it might just be my fear of death at the moment i don't know.....xxx

I have had my organ donor card signed since I was old enough. If I am no longer here they may as well help someone. My ex and I argued over it. Sorry but if the unmentionable happened how could I deny another family a chance to save someone they love as well.

There is a bit of mystery around this. I once watched a TV programme with a woman who needed a kidney transplant. Anyway, this other womans boy died and his kidney went to the woman in need. It turns out that she started to pick up traits of the boy, like eating his favourite foods, listening to his favourite music etc. Strange.
