    Do you mean they might choose to save the non-donor because it will help more people if the other one dies? Eek..

    I don't know how I feel about that either. I don't believe anybody should be denied medical assistance. But, I do think that in the situation of 2 people needing a donor and one is a donor and one isn't, then maybe the donor should get it?? I also strongly think it should be an opt out as well.

    Also, in relation to the Drivers Licence, family can still overrule that, but with the register, from my understanding of it, that it's gospel.

    yup I agree .. it should be an opt out situation .. people are lazy (well .. yes .. fess up ... as a population we generally are ) and if people have to post in a form to opt out .. most people wont be bothered

    I believe that France has the opt out system (just what I believe I've heard on the radio before) and they have one of the highest donation rates in the world???? I could be wrong though ..

    I'm not sure about organ donation.

    I'd love to, but the sheer amount of anti convulsants I consume on a daily basis is apparently going to hurt my liver when I'm older. And that's the organ they know about. What will it do to my heart, my kidneys, my brain?

    I think I'll opt to donate, and if my organs aren't suitable, bury them with me.

    If one of our children dies, DH and I have already agreed we'd let the organs be reused, if they can.

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

    I really don't care if my organs end up in someone who didn't want to donate their own.
    Their reasons NOT to donate have no bearing on my desire to help whomever I can when I pass.

    No I thought the other way actually, that the donor was more worthy of a donation, but interesting thought process.

    I know that, I don't think it should be changed, just interested in people's views, I was surprised by my own initial thoughts and wanted to see what others thought.

    I think that everyone deserves medical assistance, donors or not. But I think more should be done to encourage people to become donors.

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

    This is certainly an interesting topic it
    was tabled over dinner tonight and my DS10.5 was quick to say he believed in organ donation and that he expressed that he felt it was a case of no give no return. We through some variable like religious beliefs, medical history and age etc at him he was very black and white on his opinion.

    I pretty much had to agree with how he formed his opinion and defended it.

    We are all organ donors and he told us he would like to also. DH can't donate many organs due to his disability and injuries he has had but I will donate all. He also can't donate blood but I did until recently with our IVF and the acupuncture treatment I am having I can't for now.
