They're obviously not going to give someone a diseased organ, and half the criteria for blood donation is for your own safety anyway. I can't give blood because I have seizures and it might set me off, if your underweight you can't give blood, etc, which is obvs is no problem once you're dead.

You can't just put everybody on the list, and there should be more stringent checks. Even donating blood there are so many criteria to be filled and questions asked. It should definitely not be opt in because it would cause more problems than it solved - what if you for whatever reason never removed yourself from the list or changed your mind in a high pressure situation? There could end up being legal battles for organs that are 'government owned'.
If your next of kin knew you changed your mind then they could object and the organs wouldn't be taken as long as we had a 'soft' approach to next of kin like Spain, In Austria they take them anyway even if the family object. If the family don't object then it goes ahead, your dead, your wishes won't count for nothing if they're unknown, if they were there wouldn't be a problem.
