If I was dead and my organs cremated along with my body, what difference would it make had my organs not been in the casket? My wife and kids wont miss my organs, they would miss me as a person, not a lung (that's obviously no longer needed)... That could be used for to prevent a death or make a child's quality of life better or even research into lung cancer.The fact is loads and loads people do not know how to opt in or opt out, and it is a personal choice so to just sweep those people up is not right. And to say 'you are dead what does it matter', it matters to the people closest to you and that are left behind. Those who say it should be mandatory are plain wrong. Nature is the important thing. Think about it. Its ok I don't expect you to agree
So, would that also work if it were an OPT-IN system?I wonder if those who don't want to donate their organs would be prepared to accept a donated organ if it was a matter of life and death. Seems a bit selfish to me if they would accept an organ to save their own or one of their family members lives, but not be prepared to help by donating their organs. Especially when they are dead and have no more use for the organs. Just recycling really.
David Mitchell made me laugh with his rant at around the 2 minute 10 second mark
My own personal opinion is that it should be mandatory, organ donations save a lot of lives, there are people suffering on waiting lists waiting for a body part, its like the deceased's cloths they go to the op shop to be recycled why not useful organs. The rest of the body should be composted and the bones collected and ground into gelatin.So, would that also work if it were an OPT-IN system?
