    Default Would you donate your kidney?

    If someone you considered a “good acquaintance” was in need of a kidney transplant, and the likelihood of them getting one from the donor waiting list was slim to none, what would you say if they asked you to donate one of your kidneys to them because you were a match?

    Would you donate it?

    No, I'm quite attached to all my organs, but he can have the kidney when I'm dead.

    Nah. I might call the demon from the other thread to check for a better solution.

    I would be avoiding them as much as possible so they don't even have the option of asking. If they did, it would cause me immense psychological stress. Because I would not want to, at all, I honestly don't care. However, I'd feel like I don't have a choice in the matter and for me to say no is to effectively be bad, so I'd feel completely obligated to do it. Obligation + not wanting to + harm upon me = BAAAAADDDDDD.

    A good acquaintance... They're a dime a dozen. If only I had about 20 kidneys to spare... then I might think on it.

    Then again, I might be saving those for immediate family members and life-long friends.

    I would donate a kidney to my immediate family members only.

    Maybe yeah. If I was like a hard to find match and I felt sure that I'd survive it and be okay, I just might do it. What a great opportunity to save a life.

    Probably, as long as my doctors say it won't endanger my own health.

    As an absolute last resort, I guess. But I'd prefer to reserve it for people I'm already close to. If I did, I'd make sure that good acquaintance and I would become BFFs.

    On the rare chance someone I actually know is a match with me?? Ehh.. Probably. Especially if they were dying. I can deal without alcohol and shit. But they owe me a nice dinner when it's all done. Also, free tattoo.
