In fact take what you need.
I was getting an injection the other day to fend off any future lung infections and while waiting I was browsing the VERY boring medical leaflets that are often available in these places (more often than not used to passify the patients than inform ;) and the most interesting one was about Organ Donation.
It got me thinking about the subject and to be honest I would quite like the thought of my internal gubbins going to some good use after my demise.
I've always kind of been not that bothered by the whole postmortem part of my existence...since by that time I'm pretty sure I won't give a brass razoo what happens to my mortal remains. I vaugely like the notion of burial over cremation, or perhaps being dumped into the sea, but overall I really don't mind what happens to me after death...just so long as they make sure I am actually dead :P
So I reckon thinking about it logically the best use of a dead body if possible is to harvest it for anything of value and help out those that are still alive and kicking.
But of course if you follow certain religions or have stronger preferences than my own i'm sure many people would be against such an idea, so whats your thoughts on the subject?
Do you think you or your family would care what happens to you after your gone?
Do you have a preferance or concept of what sort of funeral arrangements you'd like?
Or is this all just a bit grim and you'd rather not think about it?...if yes to this one then...sorry :P
Ooo also do you know or are you someone who has benefitted from a donated organ?
