Music Monday meets bloody good idea

Today, music Monday meets a really good idea.

This week I got my license plate renewal sticker. YIPPEE WTF you say??

Well, I just discovered a “new” law in Illinois (effective since Jan 1, 2006 — so that tells you exactly how seldom we get mail from the Secretary of State, and how rare it is for us to read the inserts). Anyway – there is a new Organ/Tissue Donor Registry in Illinois, that makes a person’s wishes to be a donor legally binding. Family consent is no longer required. In other words, if

A new law, effective Jan. 1, 2006, created a new Organ/Tissue Donor Registry making a person’s wishes to be a donor legally binding. Additional witnesses or family consent is no longer required for donation to occur.

That’s right — if I haul off and kill myself while I’m driving down the road, and am DOA when I hit the ER, my license would be checked and I’ll have parts harvested, and they wouldn’t have to check with Spouse. MY body, MY choice.

Anyway, if you’re in Illinois, and if you’re like me and for whatever reason haven’t signed up for the new Organ/Tissue Donor Registry, click here now. You’ll need your Driver’s License number. Go ahead, I’ll wait . . . . .

Okay – now post a response (just so I feel like I did something useful today), and then tell your friends, and tell your neighbors, and tell your friend’s neighbors, and your neighbor’s friends. And then, enjoy the Fab Four

  1. What great news! My Drivers License has an organ donor sticker, but here in TX we have to register in advance through what I found to be a very complicated system and then our next of kin still needs to sign. My Spouse says he will not sign, so my registry is only good if he dies, too. Aaargh!

  2. Umm, that didn’t sound right.
