Alright, there's been some talk for quite some time now on a new scheme they want to set up in the UK. I am currently one of the 25% who is on the organ donation register, and I think it's pretty cool how my corpse can be of benefit.

We currently hold a 'opt in' system, where, if you want to donate your organs, you have to sign up. However, the UK Government want to make a 'opt out' scheme. Basically, anyone who signs a form saying they do not wish to donate their organs, cannot donate. Anyone who isn't, can.

Personally, I think it's a fantastic idea. It could really help the transplant list and could save lives. However, there are many who disagree with the idea. Some Doctors say that this new system may lower trust in Doctors. I think the message is pretty clear; raise your voice if you don't want to, or your organs will be donated. I think it's a silly refute.

Poll is coming.

Discuss.

I'd donate certain ones, my liver & a kidney (not both), my hear & lungs are a possibility too.

Opt out scheme. I've been trying to convince everyone it'd be a good idea for years but no one seems to listen. I'm an organ donor and proud of it, but hardly anyone else I know is.
It's gonna cause one hell of a fracas soon, especially when religion and uppity, gobshite families get on their high horses.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
Let me in for a minute, you're not my life but I want you in it

Here in Austria we have the opt out system and it's working perfectly.

Who needs their organs when they're dead?

opt out. if i suddenly died, and have not signed an organ donation opt in form, my organs would go to waste, all the while i wish for them to be used. i think it's much better to assume the person would give than the person would not give.

On second thought, i'd donate them, if i knew who they were going to, if that person didn't need them i want them put back in.

You'll be dead, and no-one's gonna go 'ohh, your hearts a bit bruised, here, have another one'. Transplants are serious.
#14
If anyone's got a serious problem with it. They can opt-out.

Well i want my body to be frozen exactly how and where it is when i die, so no, no one is chopping me up and stealing my lovely innerds before said freezing has been done.

cryogenic freezing won't work. All the water that is in your cells will freeze and expand, destroying every cell in your body. So basically you won't be able to revived. It's basically frostbite, over your entire body.


but I'd opt out. I'm pretty sure I'm already a donor on my drivers license.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Why would anyone not want their death to help others? It should be compulsory.
#19
I'm undecided. I think it is a good and sensible idea which could help many in need of organ transplants. However I'm not too sure I like the thought of my body body being cut up and taken apart, even if I am dead.

It's not like we're gonna need them, right?

Opt out.
I believe I'm already a donor through my drivers license. Don't see the point in not donating my organs if they're good enough to be recycled.

about the "if I die and I didn't get to sign an opt in"
for US (at least my state), they ask when you get your license renewed
so unless you change your mind every couple years it shouldn't be a problem

I just can't see a good reason to deny donation. There are obviously good reasons not to use a particular person's organs, but I don't know why you'd opt out anyway.

Because they're as retarded as my ex-girlfriend's Mum who told me that all immigrants were illegal 'because it was on the news'.

I was tempted to sign up for organ donation, but I just daren't. i don't know what it is that stops me, but I just can't do it.

You win this thread. And UG. I haven't actually lol'd at a post in a really long time. Thanks for changing that. I expect a sig

My organs will be of no use to me when I am deceased, so I don't see why some people aren't donors. Opt out.
It all makes sense
We're capable of beauty

#32
Opt-out makes loads more sense rather than opt-in. You want the default to be the most useful option.
#33
I'm not an organ donor.

I think it's stupid how it's illegal to sell body parts. Like in the U.S., seventeen people die each day because of kidney failure, while there are thousands of people willing to sell them a kidney.


EDIT: Does 'opt out' mean you're an organ donor? I accidentally picked that.
#34
Opt out scheme definitely.

I'm an organ donor now on my drivers licence but it would be easier if there was a system where everyone had to do it unless they opted out because most people I know are organ donors or have no problem with it.

An opt out system would be pretty good.
I'm not in the UK, though.

I'm an organ donor, by the way.
I'll have no use for all my parts when I'm dead. They might as well go to someone who needds them.
#37
In the USA I would be an organ donor, because its a great thing, the only thing is that if your in an accident or something and they see that you are an organ donor, they wont try as hard to save you.

A legal trade in organs would be awful.

Wait...so opt out means you're an organ donor?


No, fool, it means you support an 'opt out' system of organ donation.

I am a donor in the US. I figure I won't be needing them so they can do whatever they want with them. Donate me to a bunch of necros for all I care.

My blood type is really rare though and my organs will probably end up being incompatible with most people.


Anyways, opt-out system does sound way better.

i'm a greedy bitch so i'm keepin my organs!
