    Possibly so, i could never say for sure unless i was in that position but not really afraid of death so i can see me declining for reasons that are complicated to explain. I hope i can work through that so i feel good about organ donation and i'm nearly there..but not quite.

    Default Should someone who says no to being an organ donor be eligible to receive one?

    Totally agree with Bubmum!

    The whole idea reeks. Personally I would hate it if my organs weren't donated to someone for that reason.

    I wonder if people were given a choice between someone who refuses to be a donor to save someone else's life if they die, and someone who is a willing donor, who would they choose (excluding those with health, medical, religious reasons or children).

    I struggle with this as I struggle to understand why someone wouldn't want to be an organ donor (leaving the question of whether they are able to be aside)... Although I know that people must have very strong reasons, I just can't get my head around them.

    That said, what if someone was happy to be a donor, but just never got around to registering or telling anyone? Imagine letting them die because of some rule that you have to be registered to donate to receive??
