I believe OP is talking about after death.
I hope they don't take my heart while I am living.

The issue is called "kovod hames" loosely translated "dignity of the dead", we don't want to take apart dead people, for that same reason jews do not allow autopsies

Let me clarify, it appears JJ is referring to being a registered organ donor, something (in NJ) you do at the DMV, and is marked on your license. It is when one dies from injury not sickness, most of ones organs are still healthy, so after death they can be used for a person in need.
Not "donating an organ" which is done alive, and you can chose to who, which we jews do

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
