    Yer poll will be biased.
    A lot depends on how people have to make their choice, eg Austria and Germany, similar cultures but very different donation rates

    I think my liver and kidneys would do more harm to the recipient than good.

    I have been donating my sexual organs on a weekly basis, but if someone wants it when i'm dead then I wouldn't be sad to keep the legacy going.

    Personally I think the default should be "YES" everywhere and to hell with archaic religious beliefs about needing rotting flesh in the afterlife, but I guess that view would be unpopular here. Let's hope none of us need a transplant while living in HK.

    just don't be passive

    And even if you've already donated your organs, you can still be a body donor!
