    This thing again? When was it ‘debated’ last time—about a year ago?

    Terrible, terrible comparison. Somehow I don't think human transplantation from the dead to keep the living alive compares to raping someone.
    Both of them are giving consent to allow someone else to enter your body and have their way with you. What's the difference? In fact, organ donation is even worse, because they're physically removing bits from your body, so it should require a greater degree of consent.

    Mr Speaker, since i recall a former bill doing this can you confirm that no such bill has been passed since the last great repeal.

    Upon consultation, the only bill which I found to do something similar was B966: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4046939

    This bill failed back in May 2016

    Taking an organ from a dead person so that a living person can avoid death or blindness is worse than raping a living person?

    Yeah, I strongly disagree.
