no, each has its own personality, and would be wrong to want change

*Would you be willing to donate your organs after you die?

Of course!

*Do you carry an organ donor card?

No, I don't carry any organ donor card.


*Do you think parts of a donor’s personality is transplanted along with the organ?

No, because the personality is not in our organs, it is in our soul.

*Would you accept a killer’s heart if you needed a heart transplant?

I guess I could not choose, but probably I wouldn't.

*What do you think of giving someone a transplant against their will?

It's complicated! well, I think that we should respect the patient.

*Would you like a personality transplant?

No, Definitively not.

Yes, I would like to donate my organs, it's posible.
No, I don't.
No, I don't think so because it's only a part of my body and not a part of my soul
It's very difficult to answer... Maybe
As illegal transplants? It's terrible
No, I feel great.
