    No, because I've heard that if an organ donor is in a position where doctors need to work hard to save them after an accident or whatever, the doctors are less likely to because they'll know they can use the person's organs if they die, so there's more incentive to use their organs to save several other people than to save just one organ donor. Sounds pretty plausible to me.
    I highly doubt that's the case! Yes i am an organ donor, I think it should be an opt out thing rather than opt in.

    i imagine by the time most of us die they wont need organ donors any more anyway
    Good point, it all might be done via stem cells.
