    Mandatory Organ Donation

    Have you ever watched your uncle wither away and die over the course of five years, never to receive the pair of lungs he was waiting for?

    I view humans as the animal-monkey homo sapien. We're typically hairless monkeys suspended in a rock in space. Unlike other animals we have heightened intelligence. Like ants and other creatures we crave order, efficiency, survival.

    Once we die our right to our organs should die as well. How many people have to suffer and wait for organs that they may not ever receive? If you failed the birth lottery and are poor, chances are you won't be able to shunt money towards getting an organ faster.

    No, you have no right to your organs when you die. Your organs will be used to save the lives of others desperately in need. Our country would be a much better place if we didn't waste the perfectly useable organs of the deceased. Think about it. How many people would you say are waiting for a new heart, lung, liver, etc? What if you found yourself waiting? Waiting. Waiting. Deteriorating. Hoping. Dying.

    No more. Do away with voluntary donations. Make it mandatory for the benefit of all. What, you think you need your rotting organ after you're dead? No, you most certainly don't. It could be better put towards saving the life of another human being. It would take some strain off of our healthcare system if we had ready access to life-saving organs/tissue/whatever.

    I think this is what's best for America.

    Re: Mandatory Organ Donation

    I am a designated organ donor. Basically, once I die, they can take whatever they can use then just burn the rest. Organ donation absolutely should not be mandatory though. It needs to be a voluntary and personal choice for the individual's and their families.

    I'm unclear on what point you're making. Would you please clarify what you mean?

    ^^^ What he said.

    Some people may not be comfortable with that idea and their loved ones who are still alive may have issues with it as well. Life is too short to tell people what do with their bodies.

    No, people should be able to have their bodies handled as they want to after they die. Having such a requirement would be a disaster for a nation that puts such an emphasis on freedom and particularly religious freedom.

    Re: Mandatory Organ Donation

    Yet if you die, you're no longer alive on this earth to exercise any sort of freedom. Rights should end, like marriage, upon death. That's my take on it.

    So, you think that when you die, your body should belong to who? The state?

    That depends on what religion/spirituality you subscribe to. And even from an agnostic/atheist stand point it's still your body even after death.

    And dude, if you think you don't have a right to your body after death, then you certainly shouldn't believe in any inheritances or passing down of money.
