    Well we don't live in a feaudal based system here where humans are chattel, at least not anymore.

    Then if you have a receipt you can claim it in the front office.

    You would rather be buried with your organs, for really no practical reason (they're going to degrade anyways), rather then possibly save someone's life?

    You know what? In reality it's up to the next of kin. If they object it ain't happening, if they say yes, then it happens...

    No one in the hospital checks the little check on the person's driver's license. That's just a feel good thing with no bearing on real life. In in the real world the next of kin is approached, and they decide.

    I have long believed that postmortem organ donation should not be optional.

    If I ran the zoo, I'd make it mandatory.
    I would be willing to go so far as to allow selfish wingnuts who have some religious objection to "opt out" (but I wouldn't make it easy for them; I'd make them fill out a boatload of paperwork and go before a committee to explain their objections to organ donation).
    But I believe organ donation, like immunization, should be the status quo.
    I do not believe I've ever heard an objection to it that I considered valid.
    Like I said, I wouldn't force people to do it if it was just going to absolutely traumatize the bejeezus out of them and destroy their lives. But I wouldn't make opting out easy, by any means.
    I'd make them feel like a big asshole.
    I'd force them to have "NON-DONOR" stamped all over all their identifying information, too, claiming it was so that no mistakes were made. Really, it would be to stigmatize them.
    I'd make sure everyone knew that a "NON-DONOR" was a very crappy and undesirable thing to be.

    Fortunately 1069, you're not in charge, since you seem to be disrespectful of individual freedom of choice.





    (unless in involves killing your unborn child)

    If the shoe fits.

    If Z/E/Fs are "unborn children", you're a pre-dead corpse.
    Pity we'll have to wait to harvest your organs.
    They could be doing so much more good than they currently are.
