    I am an organ donor. I believe its the right

    thing to do. I don't understand why more people aren't organ donors. It could save someone's life, and its not like we can take them with us when we die. It just seems selfish to not donate.

    Help Others Live

    I am an organ donor. I am completely supportive of donating your organs when you die. I think there is no reason to put perfectly good organs in the ground to die with you, when they can be on earth still, helping someone else live and have a life. Why not save a life when you...

    My Logic On It...

    Well...you know, if I'm dead, I can't really say I'd need them anymore.  There's no point in letting them rot if they could save someone's life or improve their health.  Besides that, stories about people that got their lives back from an organ donor make me feel...
