I don't think it is possible, to have a brain transplant. But that's not neccisarily what you meant right?

Er, yeah, brain transplants don't exist. If you think about the mechanics of it, it's quite obvious.

I don't think I'd ever donate an organ while still alive, unless it were to save someone I loved, but once I'm dead, a complete stranger can have my kidneys or liver or whatever. I'll be dead.

That's exactly what I think. I don't mind donating my organs to the people in more need of them when I die.

While I'm still alive, I'd donate one of my kidneys or something that won't be the death of me but can still benefit others.

I recently had to make this decision when I got my first driver's license.

In Australia, you can have three options for you to decide (but your family can override it)

The first option is to let them take anything and everything. Eyes, skin, kidney, bone, heart, lungs etc.
The second option is to choose which organs you would like to donate, naming each individually.
The third option is to donate nothing.

I chose the first, but there are several things I don't understand.
Why should your next of kin be able to change your organ donor status after you die? Isn't it your decision?
And why donate some of your organs but not all?

I wouldn't mind donating a kidney while I'm alive and when I'm dead go ahead and take everything. I don't see why not.

Alright, we get the point! There's no need to go all caps-locky on us! I'm totally fine with donating my organs if I happen to die and my organs are still healthy. As long as they don't chop me up into little pieces during the process. Lol, I just had a vision of me in heaven. I'm having a conversation with an angel and I'm pointing at random people down on Earth saying things like, "And there's the old guy with my heart... and the little girl with my liver..."

I totally agree with you Silverphoenix. I don't care what happens to my organs once I die. It is not as if I am going to notice.

hm...personally I don't mind. I'm not particularly fond of someone cuting me open when I'm dead, but if I can save a life, then yes, I'll do it.

But I don't my parents will be happy with the idea. They keep saying, "You want to die in one piece right?"

Well, you actually become many pieces after you've died.

I don't see why there should be a problem with that. Even if you're super-religious, isn't it your sould that counts anyway?

If my organs could save a few lives after Im gone, then Im all for it. I agree with quite a few of you when I say that it won't matter because it's not like I will need them if Im dead.

As for lethe_naiad's question, I think that your soul is all that matters, so you won't even need you body after it's gone.

Wow not that I think about someone else using my insides, I should start eating better! Blue lol

Haha, okay...maybe its time for me to start taking care of my organs too ^_^. I'm actually perfectly okay with donating my organs, seeing as I won't realise it or anything after I die...

PS: But I'm afraid they won't be able to use of lungs...they're really weak Very Happy I break into really bad cough fits if I breathe in cigg smoke...so no lung donations, but everything else is fine...

I might donate my organs. Do at least one good thing for others.

Um, I think I'll be keeping my organs to myself. Not that it isn't a good, charitable thing to do, but the thought of being.... dissected, even if I'm not technically alive during the process, so I can't feel it, makes me have nightmares. The thought of other people's lives being saved is a good one though, so who knows.

When I die, my family gets to pick. Once I'm dead, I don't care much what happens to my body, as long as it isn't desacrated in any way.
