Are you an organ donor?Watch
I don't need them when I am dead and I could transform someone else's life. I don't care which parts they use.
Plus, if someone gets my eyes, it's easier to hack and transfer my soul into them and I will live once again aaaaaaahahahahaha
As soon as you turn 18 you become one unless you opt out.
i am a stem cell donor but not an organ donor, because i don't really know how i actually feel on the subject but i probably will become one, just need more information
no. because i'm paranoid. i have a rare blood type, so i'm scared that organ traffickers/corrupted people in the nhs would like use my organs to save some rich/famous person's life. also it just grosses me out... the whole idea.
I've opted out, have no desire to donate any organs or body parts posthumously and don't agree with the decision to introduce the 'opt out' system.

How does the organ get from your dead body to the personal having the transplant though? Don't your organs stop functioning when you die?
Other stuff (skin, tissues, etc) I'm not so sure about, but I'm quite sure you can artificially run lungs and hearts or kidneys between transplant (iirc?)
I remember seeing a trial for a machine that kept a heart going for ~3 days, which was pretty neat; not sure it's in practical use yet, though.
I haven't opted out/etc and am too lazy to opt out, just as I'd be too lazy to opt in. So I'm glad it's opt-out. Personally I think that there should be an option to specify conditions for donation, i.e. to make sure an ass isn't getting it, but that might be too complicated xD
I was a donor long before the law changed. I don't need my organs when I am dead but someone else might so why not?
You already are unless you have opted out.
Have you opted out?
