Why would your friends give you shit? what could their argument possibly be? I mean, if they were willing to drop the "conspiracy theories of how they'll kill you to save someone else" (something that is complete bullshit/urban legend IMO) then what would be the rational for not being a donor? You can't take it with you, so why not help someone else? I say to not be a donor is ignorant.

Not even religion is a legitimate excuse. Personally I'm an ardent Atheist but I am married to a lovely Jewish girl who up until recently refused to become an organ donor because apparently after the real messiah comes all of god's chosen people will rise from the grave and reincarnate before the final judgement or some shit. If they gave away their organs they won't be complete and therefore won't be able to live again (but apparently the tip of the penis is still expendable). This is why Jews generally aren't big on organ donation, cremation, etc... they must preserve the whole of the dead body because THEY THINK THEY'RE GOING TO NEED IT LATER!!!! WTF!!!!! Thankfully 5 years of me openly and unappologetically mocking such non-sense (and about 100 donor raps from Phil) has changed her mind.

To not be a donor is selfish.

Thats waht I say! If Im dead and gone, why not share the gift of life with others! I think its more from a standpoint that they can't handle the thoughts of death. And, ive heard to, 'their mine, fuck other people, im going to grave with it.' I just dun get it, and Im sure as hell tehy'd change their tune if something happened to them.

I'm an Oregon Organ Donor. Hah sorta like a double donor. But not. Was a donor long before Phil told us all we should be. All my family is in the medical profession. So yeah, it just seemed like the right thing to do. Well and it is!

Been one for decades and registered for marrow for many and a recipient of two corneas, which allowed me to clearly see my kids grow up. I always get choked up and profoundly humbled during Phil's donor raps, and I always make a point to listen to them on show recordings.

After hearing one of Phil's organ donor raps at a show my friends and my soulmate all had the conversation about "what if?". Everyone agreed that we are all donors, without Phil's commitment to the cause and the luck to receive an organ we would have never had the conversation. If I or one of my friends were to pass unexpectedly I and our close circle of friends would hope someone could use one of our organs to save their lives.
