I read this post
and I couldn't believe what I was reading. Someone who believes that if you have a donor card get in a car crash and they see that, they won't even try to keep you alive because they'll just take your organs to harvest it so they can sell it!?
Here's another post
that clarifies some organ donor myths: "Myth: If I agree to donate my organs, the hospital staff won't work as hard to save my life.
When you go to the hospital for treatment, doctors focus on saving your life — not somebody else's. You'll be seen by a doctor whose specialty most closely matches your particular emergency. The doctor in charge of your care has nothing to do with transplantation. Myth: Maybe I won't really be dead when they sign my death certificate.
Although it's a popular topic in the tabloids, in reality, people don't start to wiggle their toes after they're declared dead. In fact, people who have agreed to organ donation are given more tests (at no charge to their families) to determine that they're truly dead than are those who haven't agreed to organ donation."Are you aware of the truths and myths of being an organ donor? Are you an organ donor?
