Yes, as far as I am concerned they can have anything at all of use if it helps someone else live.
I wonder if those that dont would refuse a transplant for themselves or their close family if it was needed?

I thought you were automatically opted in and then a letter was sent that if you do not want your organs donated then you would have to opt out (which is what I did a while ago).

I've opted out, although Under 18s are technically still exempt (I think?) from the auto-opt in. Will have to check that though.
My body, in my opinion, is my body and I fear that if I did allow them to take my organs after death without consent, there's the possibility of me being killed just to harvest those, and nobody would know.
For those who are cool with it or have family members/friends who did, I have a massive amount of respect for you.

Yep. It should be opt out rather than opt in and there should be a *real* reason why you don't want to :yes:

Would you accept an organ donation if you needed it? I would assume not?

How are they going to ask the person if they are dead?

There's been so many announcements, posters, and a big period of time before it coming into effect for people to opt out if they want. It's not without their consent. I think family members can technically say no (even if the person does want to donate them), hence needing that conversation with family to respect their view on it.

I've only seen a TV advert about this a few times. People could easily miss there being an opt-out system.

In my opinion, if you opt out you shouldn't be allowed to have a stranger donate you an organ. Just fairness

I would opt out. I believe this is a form of corrupt spiritual intimacy. Your organs belong to you and your physical body is spiritually attached to your soul through them. Why I would give a part of me to someone else or have a part of them live in me goes beyond my imagination.

Yes. I would willingly accept an organ if needed, so I would gladly let my organs go to whoever needs them if I no longer need them.

Maybe to live on, say you needed a lung, you wouldn't accept it? If the other option was death.
