Would you donate/sale your kidney--to a relative? Or just anyone that needs it?

I would donate to a family or good friend, even though I would like to help in some way I don't think I could donate to a complete stranger. I know that may sound selfish but I don't like the idea of risking my life for someone I have never met.

Once I pass away I will be putting my organs up for donation to help out anyone who needs them.

I told the broskies they can do what they want with my corpse when I'm done with it.

Well, you could also kill me. Assuming you don't get caught, you've earned yourself some kidneys.

If they need an organ, I'll donate it!

No... this is like asking would I donate an eyeball to someone?

I wouldn't want someone alive to donate kidney to me if I was sick. Would rather stay in the hospital and wait for a donor from a dead person.

I have health issues of my own so when it comes to something like that everyone else is on their own. Both of my kidneys will stay with me right up until they put the last shovelful of dirt over me or I turn to ash.

I can't speak to practices in other countries, but in the United States, buying/selling of organs for transplantation is illegal outright. No one can be forced to donate, nor can anyone be paid to donate.


Maybe the person in the OP made an agreement with the relative to give their kidney, and they would get a "cash donation" in exchange. Technically not a sale. You know how these things work amongst acquaintances. *wink*

But no, if there are any useable organs after I'm dead, anyone who needs them can have them. But I really, REALLY don't want to before I'm out. I'm too squeamish to give blood; I don't want to have any more to do with the medical world than I have already.
