You may think they wouldn't want your organs, but you never know. At the very least, they may use tissues and skin ie skin can be used on burn victims until their own skin grows back.

I am a registered donor but I am vehemently against mandatory organ donation, even on an opt out basis. Sorry, but nobody has a RIGHT to anyone's organs, tissue, blood etc. It is through the generosity of voluntary donors that transplant is possible and it needs to stay that way. It would be govt way, way, way overstepping it's bounds.
I don't believe that the state should be able to harvest your organs as a mandate, however, I wouldn't necessarily object to the default being organ donation where no legal request or expressed wish not to donate is given.
I've given my approval for any and all parts of my body to be used either as organ donations or as tools for training new doctors - I'm not so selfish as to think I'm going to need it after I'm dead and I'm not religious so burial as part of a religious rite isn't of interest to me. But since I've decided to donate, I'd hate there was some mix up and they didn't see my donation card or it got lost or nobody related to me was in the hospital or at the scene when I died to let them know my wishes and because not donating is the default now, my wishes wouldn't be honored.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
I'm unsure. Probably I would be ok with it.
If we can drastically increase the amount of organ donations by really just switching a few words around, and helping tens of thousands of people, I feel that we're less of a country because we get into stupid squabbles about this and decide its better to let those people die.
