Organ donation is something that most people don't think about until it affects them or their family members, she said.
When a person is near death in a hospital, their family members may not be in the best state of mind to make a decision about organ donation, Moore said.
"[That] is a very stressful time, and families are not in a good state to make the decision," Moore said. "This way, you're making your own decision."

Another common wrong assumption is that the doctrine of Jehovah's Witnesses does not allow for organ donation, she said. The church teaches against blood transfusion but not organ donation, she said.
People who wish to sign up to be an organ donor will be asked for their driver's license number, their birth date and the last four digits of their Social Security number, she said.
