Parenthetically, nine years ago the government began the process of denying the individual’s Right to control his body parts in life and after death:

The proposal could move the federal government closer into alignment with what has been proposed by longtime Barack Obama adviser Cass Sunstein.

Obama’s “regulatory czar” was revealed in 2009 to have pushed strongly for the removal of organs from those who did not give their consent to becoming an organ donor.

In his book, “Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth and Happiness,” Sunstein and co-author Richard Thaler presented the possibility of the “routine removal” of organs because “the state owns the rights to body parts of people who are dead or in certain hopeless conditions, and it can remove their organs without asking anyone’s permission.”​

Socialists turned all of Europe into a charnel house for their policies. As harmful as the UK’s socialized medicine is I never thought I would see this:

The UK government has taken one step further towards bringing into effect an ‘opt-in’ organ donation system which will presume a person is an organ donor in moves that one medical ethicist warns could mean increasing donations by “slight of hand”.​


XXXXX​
The law will mean that unless a person has expressed a wish to not donate their organs, doctors will presume the dead person is a donor.

There will be exceptions — children under 18, those with diminished mental capabilities, and foreigners who have been in the country less than 12 months — and relatives can still override the ‘presumed consent’, if the ‘donor’ has relatives in the first place to object.
Presumed Consent: UK Govt to Make Everyone Organ Donors Unless They Opt Out

This country’s euthanasia crowd already cite the healthcare systems in the UK, Canada, and Cuba as models of compassion. After the law takes effect in the UK you can expect Democrats to push for similar legislation. Should they fail they will turn to lawyers on the U.S. Supreme Court to pull another Roe v. Wade.

p.s. Democrats kill everything that walks on two feet except convicted murderers.

Opt in vs opt out.
Th fact is most people just go with the default.
Most people don't check the box to donate organs.
If the box is changed from Organ Donor to Declines to Donate Organs, most people won't check it.
And there will be a lot more organ donors.
And thousands of lives will be saved. I can see where the GOP opposes that. It make too much sense.

This has been suggested for retirement plans, lot's of people don't sign up for their company matching funds 401k.
If the default is that the are signed up to get the maximum match, almost everyone will reain signed up to get the maximum match.

Why the hell does anyone have an issue with their dead relatives being used for spare parts.

Are you trying to keep the croaked buggers alive?

It's too late. It's over. Deal with it and be a human being.

Probably were pricks in life, let them be saviors in death.
