Could a person change his/her mind about donating kidney to an ex? See Detail?

There is the story about that in the news, I’m searcing for a link. The person who needs the kidney is making it a story, I think.

I have no actual knowledge on the matter, but my thoughts on such a situation is that a person should be allowed to back out at any time before procedure begins.

Yes, but people are arguing about it as if they know anything about the story, when that’s only a fraction of the story.
What would you say is the percentage/fraction of the story by the way, @Patty_Melt in your opinion?

I won’t pick up the phone, for my ex. A kidney? Ha! Good luck with that….

…by the way I meant as if they know “everything” about the story.
@MrGrimm888 Of course, a kidney is a biiiiig deal.

He’s my ex for a reason. He’s not getting my kidney.

People can, and do change their minds about all manner of things throughout their life. A particular decision is made for all different reasons, sometimes both situations and/or people change, this may or may not cause a change of heart.

Yes, they can change their mind. I donated a kidney. It was said more than once that I could change my mind at any time. The medical team would report I couldn’t proceed for medical reasons.

Also, over a few months there were interviews with several hospital staff who evaluated whether it could have a negative effect on my life, socially, physically and financially. A disgruntled ex wouldn’t pass that test.

Of course someone can change their mind.

Wait, is the about the woman who did donate her kidney, then wanted it back after they broke up? Because that is just dumb.

People who agree to donate a kidney or part of their liver or bone marrow can change their mind up until the last minute. You have control over your body, no one is cutting into it if you don’t want them too unless you are under court order (wouldn’t happen for a kidney, in fact court orders are usually regarding minors).

@Patty_Melt to answer your question, I don’t think so. I think it’s a couple who were dating, I don’t know for how long or how serious the relationship was. And I think it was before the donation.
@canidmajor I don’t think that’s the one.

Thanks all. @Yellowdog, I’m still trying to understand your answer.

Even if the break up was not in the least bit acrimonious, if the donor decides to change his/her mind how can it be a story?
