Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : February 25th 2009
26 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, February 26, 2009 MB STREETVIEW Case of tick or not to tick Pricilla Ayoub Ross Berghofer Sandra Berghofer Michael Nassar Victor Lui This week is Organ Donor Awareness Week. The story of how a kidney transplant saved Croydon resident Mark Reilly's life shows the benefits of organ donation. But not everyone has ticked the box on their driver's licence that classifies them as a potential donor. We asked five people outside Westfield in Burwood whether they have ticked the box and whether organ donation should be compulsory. Pricilla Ayoub, of Marrickville: When you do your will, and when you get your licence, they ask you about organ donation. I said yes. If it's going to help other people in this world, why not? Other people would do it for you, so why wouldn't you do it for them. Ross Berghofer, of Croydon Park: When you're dead, you're dead. I've had an operation where you are fully unconscious and you don't feel a thing. My driver's licence is definitely ticked. Sandra Berghofer, of Croydon Park: It is very worthwhile. We have been at Westmead Hospital when there was a serious car accident. A young person was very badly injured and the family chose to donate their organs. It probably saved about six lives. Michael Nassar, of Bankstown: I don't believe in organ donation. I want to be buried full. Religion-wise, that's just what I believe. So I didn't tick the box on my licence, it shouldn't be compulsory. Victor Lui, of Merrylands: I sure did tick the box. I don't want to preserve my body, I would rather help with scientific research or help someone out in the future. It shouldn't be compulsory though, everyone has their own perspectives and religious views. There should be discussion but it shouldn't be forced upon anyone.
