"I often wonder why organ donation isn't an opt-out system, apart from religi-tards I don't know anyone who objects to the process."
Because, why should I give for free something that has taken me a lifetime of loving care and maintenance? I take regular exercise, I don't smoke, don't drink too much, eat a careful balanced diet. The arrogance of the State such that they think they can claim ownership even in death. Now if there were a sweetener in the form of a payment to my nearest and dearest maybe representing somewhere near the amount the health service would save by saving someone from a lifetime of dialysis - then I may consider. Otherwise MY meat is reserved for burial in MY garden to benefit MY roses.
The sheer impertinence, the lefty-pinko-communist thought process that says that just because someone "needs" something they can have it forcefully removed from my dead body. Most transplant recipients have a lifetime of medication anyway. So it's not like joy and laughter and sun ever after - just even more drain on the overstretched NHS budget.
Well, here's the thing. We're all gonna die. Some people sooner than others. That's just the way it is. If you don't like it take it up with God. Heaven forfend that my liver could end up in someone like George Best. What a yellow, jaundiced waste of space.
And we have to assume that all transplant doctors are angels. Who's to say that they don't have a vested interest in declaring someone dead who's maybe just feeling a bit peaky. How many people can benefit from one person's death? I'm not sure, but I heard that by the time all the corneas and other bits of gristle are taken into account it can be as many as 20. What's one life to save 20?
So, why not do like they do in China - harvest from the prisoner population?
