Make a decision before it's too late

There are certain decisions which will only come into effect after it's too late for you to choose. One of them is the decision whether your organs can be used after you're dead. This means that the decision is left to the grieving relatives, who are forced to face the issue just after their loved one has passed away.

This is a horrible situation to put them in.

Fortunately, many countries allows you to make the decision up front, stating whether you want your organs to be used or not, in case something happens to you.

In Denmark, this can be done through the website tagstilling.nu. Here you can enter your decision, and even indicate whether you want your relatives to be asked or not.

If you live in Denmark, I would ask you, if you haven't already done so, to think about the issue, and then register your choice. I am on the side of donating organs, but I accept that others don't feel the same way. But regardless of where you fall, please make a decision, and register it. It's important.
