For many patients suffering from chronic, irreversible conditions, an organ transplant is the last possible treatment open to them. A heart, liver or kidney can save their life. Unfortunately, the demand for organs is currently greater than their supply.
What do you think about donating your organs to save lives ? In Belgium the law says that organs can be removed from each deceased person unless he has a certified document which says that he doesn't agree. If you are not sure about your relative's reactions you can also get a certificate that you agree to donations even if your family doesn't agree. This certificate helps to avoid discussions between the doctors and the family. In short from each deceased person organs can be removed.
I don't know the legislation in other countries, but I think this is a good solution. For me personally I don't care what happens after my death. If there are healthy organs, they can take out whatever is still useful to save lives. Mr. G. thinks the same. So many lives could be saved if everybody would agree to donate organs ! Those who believe in God and have doubts because they could arrive in paradise as a puzzle are wrong in my opinion. I am sure that God prefers saving lives than have an entire body being buried. Anyway nobody knows for sure what happens after your death. Some people are afraid it would hurt, but once you are dead you are dead and you shouldn't feel anything. Others believe they could be only apparently dead, but times where you were laying in a coffin with a little bell besides you just in case are long over.
What is your opinion about this delicate theme ?
