yes, told my children, partner, ex and parents to donate whatever they can. registered organ donor, when I die I dont need anything so why keep a liver, heart, kidney or other organs that might be able to help a very sick person

I'd support "opt out" instead of "opt in", which is a mutant "presumed consent"

No. If there is no ID card indicating the person Wants to be a donor, it would be violating their rights. Hundreds of people are waiting for organs all the time but that doesn't give anyone the right to take organs without consent.
