Organ Donation in Great Britain – Opt Out, Not In.

In a move that runs counter to the way we do it on our side of the pond, “Gordon Brown has thrown his weight behind a move to allow hospitals to take organs from dead patients without explicit consent.”

Writing in The Sunday Telegraph, the Prime Minister says that such a facility would save thousands of lives and that he hopes such a system can start this year.

The proposals would mean consent for organ donation after death would be automatically presumed, unless individuals had opted out of the national register or family members objected.

Thanks to Drudge for this one.
