Being an organ donor is a very personal decision. I don't think it is something people should feel obligated to do, and I also don't think that those who decide not to donate their organs should be made to feel like they are doing the wrong thing.
I'm sorry, but I do take offense! To even consider that medical professionals like my parents would not try as hard to save donors is a pretty awful thing to say.
Yes, I agree organ donation is a personal thing. If someone does not want to donate, that is completely their right.
I do think it is kind of strange if people who dont donate(other than for medical reasons) accept blood or organs when in need. Of course everyone should have access, not just those that would donate, it just seems a little hypocrytical. When it's your backside on the line, everything looks a little different.
