Yup. Little red dot on my health card.
No, I'm not
Yes, I am
Undecided/don't have license yet.
I'm not against it but currently I'm not an OD as for the wishes of those close to me who are strongly against it.

You wouldn't be forcing anything on them, you would only be giving them a choice other than death. They would be making the choice themselves, and they would be grateful for that choice. Just about any rational individual would rather make the choice of having an organ that's of less than optimal quality if the alternative were dying.
No I am not...but the reasoning is because my health has not always been the greatest and I think it's a tease to give body parts to people when they don't function as well as they should be. My eyes are terrible, kidney bad...I'm better just finding other ways to help like giving blood.
No.. reason being i'd rather donate my organs to my friends or family rather than some random stranger.
I believe said deterioration is already prevented from donation anyways.
With all due respect, I can respect your opinion on the OD subject, but that article is a major case of medical malpractice and not something that is "always something happening".
If you were in her situation your organs would never be removed, the second they cut into you they would realize you aren't a corpse and stop cutting because of the profuse bleeding because that's what they thought they were doing because of some dumb nurse injected a supposed corpse with a major anesthetic.
Yeah, I have no use for them when I'm dead. And I think it'd be a great if my organs could save some peoples lives.
To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
I’m not that arrogant.
The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.
I'm not. The thought of it makes me somehow feel uncomfortable - that's sufficient for me to opt out.
Of course, this might change later on, but then I can always opt in again.
Nope. My body will be left to my family to do whatever they want with (sell, donate, bury, burn in a funeral pyre, etc.).
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.
Does your religion tell you that saving someone's life is wrong?
'Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
Or a yawing hole in a battered head
And the scuppers clogged with rotting red
And there they lay I damn me eyes
All lookouts clapped on Paradise
All souls bound just contrarywise, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
