    I feel the public petition analogy is one with flaws: most people do not know nor care about public petitions, and the effect of most likely wont be as prevalent as an organ being taken out.
    However, you have said it would be a 30 second phone call to opt out. This has swayed me in all honesty; if it truly would be that simple, with all the information sent to the 16 year olds, I would have no reason not to vote Could I ask you what one would currently need to do to opt in?

    I hope my language wasn't too harsh during my questioning; I did enjoy this debate, and your attitude is much deserving of your congeniality award.

    I'm glad you are more sympathetic to this bill. To opt in at the moment, you have to register your details on the NHS website. They will then have to cross-check these details and then you will be added.

    I think you've been very fair and I enjoyed this debate too.

    Aye, just checking, you can still opt-in when under 18 right?

    Nay, I don't like the idea of someone putting my name on the donation list when I don't want to be.

    The perpetual notice required is not in the interest of the government agenda.

    Definite aye. Even on the religious points, it's worth noting that the Abrahamic faiths adhered to by the vast majority of religious people in Britain are in favour of organ donation as they believe in spiritual rather than corporeal resurrection - if we moved to an opt-out system, many would research this and likely agree to organ donation when they may not have had any particular intention of going out of their way to opt-in.
