Just been thinking this morning wondering how many people are registered organ donors. If not, why? Religious beliefs or something else? Would you accept an organ?
I am but my partner isn't. He's not against it, just has never gotten around to filling out the form. As s family member, would you agree to let their organs be donated? I would with my partner but I'd find it extremely hard with my child.

Are you an organ donor?
Yes sure am and my kids have been since birth.
I have to have a cornea transplant at some stage in next 12-18 months.. I'm struggling with the concept but am quite happy to donate my organs.

Yes I am and my partner is also.
I believe we would donate our children's organs if we had to make that awful decision.

Yes I am, yes DH is and yes I would donate the kids organs too if something awful were to happen to them.
I'm a big believer in it. If my/DH's/kids organs could help/save upto 20 odd people I think it is, it would be one way of salvaging positive something from the grief.

My whole family plans to donate our whole bodies for scientific research and medical training. You can sign up at your local university anatomy department.
We've talked about it and would donate anything useful if something happened to our children too.

Yep I am and so is DH. I'd definitely donate my children's organs if in that horrible situation but have never talked to DH about it. Might bring it up, it'll be another one of those times he looks at me and just says what the heck have you been reading on your forum

Even though it is against my cultural beliefs I am indeed a donor. We believe that when we die all parts of us must return to the earth (we also bury the placenta). I am small and I know my organs can be used for adults and children and I don't think there is any greater gift than giving life. At the end of day, even if you aren't registered it is up to your next of kin and I would happily donate my children's organs to save another. Dh isn't, but don't tell him I'm going to donate his bits if he goes first :-P I have never donated blood though because of piercings, tattoos, low iron and pregnancy. I plan on becoming a regular donor once Ds is born. Not only do blood products save lives, they were also used to grow my precious embryos.
