    Hello!

    I've been reading a thread on the topic and now I'm trying to think of potential drawbacks of becoming an organ donor, as I'm thinking of doing it. There must be some, right? So, what do you think they are?

    One point against is corruption - for example, you have an accident and are in a very bad condition, but you still live. Now a person, in the same hospital, whose father is rich/powerful, needs an organ transplant; you could be at risk of not being saved, provided you are a registered organ donor, so that the other person can live. This is a very simple scenario, but depicts the problem.

    Thanks for your input, I'd really like to hear your ideas.
