PLEASE NO PLAGIARISM !!!
In Ontario, 1,800 people are waiting for a kidney transplant. Today in Canada, persons must agree in advance to have their organs donated. Although these wishes are known, in practice a family member can deny this wish, when the person dies.
Another approach is to have a new law about organ donation. The law will be an opt-out system. That is, it will be assumed that all adults have agreed to organ donation. To not donate, they will have to register with the government. The computer data base would be available for health care workers to check if the person has refused to donate and there is no one to speak for the person. Also, the person can carry a card stating he or she refuses donation. Family members cannot overrule the refusal to donate.
This policy of mandatory donation with the option to opt-out has been used in many countries and has reduced the long lists waiting for organ donations. Do you agree or disagree with this policy and why.
