POLL: Would you give consent for your organs to be donated after death?



Death does not have to be solely the end of life; it could be the beginning of one, especially when organ donation is considered.
Organ donation is allowing for your organs to be removed, either by consent while the donor is alive or after death with the assent of the next of kin.
In cases where the time of death of a patient is predictable or in cases of euthanasia, the patient can sign a consent form for his or her organs to be harvested after death.
The practice, despite having saved many lives, remains largely unpopular and unembraced in many parts of the world, owing to religious and cultural beliefs.
On average, 20 people die each day while waiting for a transplant, according to the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS).
With this in mind, would you be willing to save a life even after yours may be over?
