All I know is that if I meet 72 virgins in the afterlife sans eyes, skin, liver and/or kidneys -- or god forbid something(s) more important to the situation at hand -- I'm going to be more than a little pissed. On a more serious note, I'm disappointed that the majority of people in this thread seem completely unable to see the opposing point of view in this discussion. Have you all no sympathy for a grieving parent that just lost their child? Or a newly minted widow? You're all presenting the argument as if people who would wish not to donate their organs or those of a loved one are acting purely out of selfishness and self-interest. But this is one of those issues where rational behavior will oftentimes go out the window. And who's to say who's right? I don't think anyone that hasn't been faced with the decision to donate the organs of someone they've just lost has the right to make sweeping statements of right and wrong about something such as this.
