|TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *Donate Life Georgia|
Setting the Record Straight
Some people make the decision not to become donors because of incorrect or misleading information they have seen, heard, or read. We want to be sure your decision is based on fact.
Fact: Medical professionals do EVERYTHING they can to save your life. If you are sick or injured and admitted to the hospital, the doctors who work to save your life are not the same doctors involved with organ donation. It is only after every attempt has been made to save your life that donation will be considered.
Fact: There is no special consideration due to age, sex, race, sexual orientation, occupation, social status, or financial status when determining who gives or receives an organ transplant.
Fact: All major eastern and western religions either fully endorse donation as an act of human benevolence, in keeping with religious doctrine, or leave the decision up to the individual. No major religion opposes organ donation. If you have questions regarding your faith's position on organ donation, we encourage you to talk with your religious leader.
Fact: An open casket funeral is possible for organ, tissue, and eye donors. The donor is treated with respect and dignity throughout the process.
Fact: There is no cost to the donor or their family for organ, tissue, and eye donation.
Fact: Everyone, regardless of their age or medical condition, is urged to join Georgia's organ, tissue, and eye donor Registry. At the time of death, medical professionals will determine a person's eligibility to become an organ, tissue, and eye donor.
