It makes me feel a bit sick to think of all the organs that rot in the ground when they could be used to save people's lives. When I am dead, I don't care what happens to my body, so long as it doesn't hurt anybody. I won't need it. HOW can anyone be against this idea? Even people who deny only their eyes bother me a bit, if I'm honest. Such a superficial squeamishness. Even if my corneas could "only" save eyesight, what a gift that is!
An opt-in system wouldn't be the government taking over ownership of your body, what an idiotic idea. What interest would they have in doing that? The only thought is in favour of saving people. It flabbergasts me that anyone is against it, yet even more that anyone is pro-organ donation but too lazy to sign up for it.
If I die, I hope anything useful I have is used to save as many people as possible, or even just to save the use of as much of someone's body as possible. In the end, it's a tiny sacrifice, for a huge gain by someone else.
Once I am dead, as far as I am concerned, I have no rights. The rights of the living far exceed those of a soulless body. Even necrophilia, to me, is only wrong because it is painful to friends/family of the living.

im signed up as a multi donor i think that includes everything but i would gladly let them harvest skin/eyes everything basically ... i want to be cremated so it wont matter to me just a corpse afterall. the way i look at is if i dont need them anymore and they are healthy/useful enough to give someone else life them im all for it
i would love to be able to donate blood but im anaemic its a struggle im always low in iron or borderline (off topic slightly ). i have no clue if that would effect me as a donor i hope not. iron supplements arnt helping much anyway.
so i know everyone has a right to choose what happens to their body but i just hope that if anything happened to me i could get a donor and if i get in a accident i can give a few people a few more years
i dont want to speak about other people's opinions/rights on this because its a personal thing not some government decision ( i know in theory its good but in practice ??? ). i dont want to force my strong feelings about it down someone's throat.. i just hope they could see why its such a great thing to be able to offer someone life
