This appeals to me.
Everyone should be seen as a potential organ donor on their death unless they expressly request not to be, England’s chief medical officer says.
Several European countries have opt-out organ donation laws, with great success. Some of them have “soft” opt-out provisions, where even if the potential donar has not opted out, family members can decide to opt-out.
Organ donation is important, and Americans understand it’s importance and support it. Unfortunately, opting-in results in far fewer organ donors than support levels would indicate. This is easily fixable, and should have reasonably wide-spread support, despite the predictable hyperventilation that would come from the hard right.
