Re: Compulsory organ donation England

That’s a scary thought, which leads me to think that you might be worth more dead than alive. Doctors removing your organs whilst you are still alive for rich patients ....

Re: Compulsory organ donation England

I would not like the thought of, keeping some of the unsavoury characters I had the misfortune to encounter going, at my expense.

Re: Compulsory organ donation England

It may save lives, but will lead to unnecessary anguish for relatives.

So who is opting out?

Re: Compulsory organ donation England

Whether you consented or not to be an organ donor used to be on your driving licence here but relatives had the right to veto. They then changed the onus to the same as you are discussing but next of kin still have the right to veto.

I can't see it as a problem. Generally speaking people on this forum are too old for some of their organs to be used anyway. Tissue is no good if you lived in the UK during the mad cow disease outbreak (you can't give blood either).

There is now a national register that you can be on if you so desire.

I may be old, but if any part of me can be used, the NHS are welcome to it, before I enter the incinerator, as I watched my mother do today.
Well said Cee Cee
Such a sad day for you condolences for your loss.
