Morbid topic. I know :oops:

Would you donate your child's organs if something terrible were to happen?

If so, why? If not

Absolutely, I'm a firm believer of giving others the chance to live by donating organs that will no longer be needed. And I would look at it as if part of my child is living on.

my husband and I both plan on being organ donors, so i think yes. If something so horrible were to happen to either of my babies, I would like something good to come of it. should something happen, they could save multiple lives.
Its a hard thing to even consider, but the way I think of it- I am saving at least one other mother from having to go through what I would have had to go through.

I would. Didn't make that decision til I met SO's mom and she told me her son's story. I would definitely donate, give others the chance to live and I know my son, he loves helping anyone... he'd be happy he could still help after he was gone.

Absolutely, unless they can tell me no and inform me why.

I have witnessed what such a wonderful gift can do. My friends daughter(close friend) would not have made it much passed her1st birthday if not for a family donating their sons liver to her. I saw the girl suffer from day one. I saw her parents go through hell.I would love to know that my child's death could help save the life of another. And knowing my children they would love to help.

Edit: the only thing Icould not do would be their eyes or skin.

I would. Not quite the same, but my son had to have two units of blood when he was attacked. It saved his life. If something terrible happened, and there was a chance I could give back to another family like what was done for mine, I would in a heart beat.

I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and I really think that we would. Part of me would be happy to know that we could help someone else, and that part of him could "live on", but a part of me would struggle with the idea that he isn't

Yes. I wouldn't want any other mother to go through what I would be going through. And in my eyes, it would be the way of my child continuing to live.

I met a college girl the other day who had to get a heart transplant and her story was so touching!
She is so greatful to her donor .

I think we would. We are both organ donors, and it just seems like the right thing to do to me. Knowing my son had perfectly healthy organs, why wouldn't I choose the opportunity to possible save another family or multiple other families from feeling that same grief?

Absolutely. My son might need a heart transplant one day and I'd hope to find a family as giving as that. I would want my children's organs go on to save someone

Absolutely. With no regret. I think choosing to donate organs is an amazing and wonderful gift to give to the recipients, and really should be done whenever possible. A beautiful thing to come out of tragedy.

My mother may be a recipient in the next few years; donating organs is kind of a given to me.

DH and I plan to donate ours when we pass. God forbids it something happens to my child I definitely would. I saw a case on Flashpoint where a girl's life was saved because a heart was donated to her. I cried my eyes out.

Absolutely. I'm an organ donor, and I believe in donating hers for the same reason I would donate mine.

In my eyes if life can come from our tragedy then it seems worth it to me... We can't use them when we're gone anyway.
