I would make it mandatory to be a donor.
What kind of person would prefer their organs to rot in the ground than save someone else?

I think organ donation is brilliant and I'm on the register myself but I don't think the state should have automatic rights to your organs. They're yours!
Anyway, they'd still be an option to bail out if you had reasons to be against it. And that's the important part - keeping it optional. So I personally think it would be a great thing to do and help save many many livesLast edited by cakefish; 25-04-2013 at 19:33.

Good idea; I would gladly donate my organs. I don't want to be buried or incarcerated when I die - let someone have my organs, they need it more than my dead body.
However, if the government issued this regulation, then there will be people opposing to the idea. I guess its a complicated issue for some, but an agreeable solution to others.
But yeah, I would fully support this idea.
