Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

When I was getting checked out for a heart transplant I had to do stress test. The guy that was doing the test gave me form to say yes or no to releasing my organs for transplant in case I passed away. I looked the like are you serious ? Hello I'm in frggin heart transplant center
Families would likely have the body in time for burial. I'm no surgeon, but I don't think it takes more than a day to take the organs out of a still-viable body.
I'm not sure if exceptions should be made for the religious. If Obamacare didn't make exceptions for the religious, then I doubt exceptions would be made for this, either.
Dead people are lumps of matter. If the government can manage the complexities of living people through, say, healthcare and Social Security, withdrawing viable organs from dead bodies would be incredibly simple.

Sounds like an idea that we can encourage through the use of punitive penalty taxes. Then, everybody gets a choice.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
I absolutely do not support mandatory organ donation upon death. If someone want to donate, good for them. Mandated? Hell no.

Instead of making someone check a box in order to be an organ donor, they should check in order not to be an organ donor.
Make organ donation the default, and if someone wants to opt out, then they check a box.
