    If I'm dead? Yes, I don't exactly see how much use my kidneys going to be to me when I'm dead, so if there's somewhere out there that needs one, then they can have mine if it's what helps them.

    If I'm still alive? No. I hate hospitals and operations and needles and stuff enough as it is. I can't see myself ever being able to do something like this. I've tried signing up to donate blood once, but I'm too small apparently.

    Yes, had a family member saved by an organ donation. If any part of me helps another person/family I'm all for it. Live organ donation for my children without a doubt.

    I don't see why they wouldn't want them, whiteman. People in need could really use them.

    We have a street basketball tournament here as a fundraiser, there is a team that is called 'Spare Parts'. All of them have had their lives saved by organ donation, and they couldn't be more appreciative of their donation families for the gift they were given.

    They would really need them to want mine. I have fatty liver disease and gall bladder disease from seroquel.

    I'm signed up. They can take whatever they need. I certainly won't be needing any of it at that point.

    It is a personal choice, no right or wrong answer. Personally I am signed up but am probably going to change that. I really don't like the idea of being harvested or even kept alive to be harvested (which I have seen over and over again). Besides, I have an out of control thyroid condition that is probably ruining my organs anyway.

    Nope I don't want someone I'd probably hate walking around with my organs in them.
