Easy ChoiceI got myself registered as an organ donor as soon as I turned 18. When I die, I'm either going to be cremated or rot away in the earth, so I don't see what I'll be needing my organs for. It's a nice idea that I might be able to help people even after I die. This was an easy choice for me.
The question remains whether my organs are any good at all. I smoke, so my lungs aren't going to be very useful. And although I'm not sick or anything, I have no idea what condition my other organs are in. Also, I'm a bit overweight. I'm not sure that's good for your organs either.
My boyfriend chose not to become an organ donor because he believes he'll need his organs for the afterlife, whatever that's going to be. I understand his logic, to some extent, but I don't believe body and soul are inseparable. I really hope I'm not wrong, because I am, my afterlife might just become interesting.
