organ donation is all well and good for those so inclined
i refuse to participate as is my perogative
if i'd been a donor, as noted on one's drivers license,
i'd have been harvested & parceled out back in 1972 when a car
rammed me into a bridge abbutment & was later run-over by a rubbernecker
who was unaware that a person was thrown from the smashed up Opel stationwagon.
If i'd been a donor, on my AZ license, when i had a brain hemorrhage
in 1997, i'd have been harvested & parcelled out no doubt.
i anticipate that in 2021, (the next 24.5 year interval) I will still
be a non-donor, but by that time my eyes, liver and other parts
will not be serviceable to others anyhow...
but i would consider releasing 'bone marrow' if it could be helpful,
however the law says its all or nothing... & that needs to be reviewed !
as technology has made it possible to set up speciality donations
rather than the present blanket model covering all body organs & parts
