PRESUMED CONSENT? I’M OUT!

UK’s New Absurd Organ Donation Law and Why I’m against it.

Recently the UK has changed the law so it is now legal to farm a deceased person’s organs. Well, to put it bluntly, I’m outraged.

First of all, the deceased people aren’t anyone’s property. They used to be normal people walking around and they should be treated as such. They’re not livestock. You do not get to choose what to do with their bodies the moment you realize the fact that they’re no longer able to give their opinions on the matter. It is absolutely outrageous to make that choice for them. You are basically removing their free will and categorizing them as more cattle than human at this point.

Sure, people can choose to do this if they want to, but most people wouldn’t be okay with something as stupid as to have people pull you out of the ground and basically desecrate your body.

 It is absolutely wrong to think that that person could have been a hard-working person and the moment they lose their lives they instantly get discarded as materials for whatever they’ve got planning. Your body is your own, nobody else’s, so unless the person specifically asked for their organs to be donated I see no reason for them to be “farmed” out of them.

FAMILY CONCERNS DISMISSED

To make things even worse, this law can actually overpower the choice of the family, so even if the family members are not okay with this, according to this new law you don’t even get a choice in what happens to your son/daughter/mother/father’s body any more.

If you didn’t sign anything like that while you were still alive it clearly means that you’re not okay with it. Some religions would even consider this to be a deadly sin that could lead to an eternity of torment. I highly doubt that any person out there would be okay with having their 8-year-old child be discarded as just another “meat suit” that people in high places can just use. Again, if the person is okay with this happening to his or her body then that’s fine, but don’t force it upon the people that don’t want anything to do with this. It is wrong in so many ways, which is why I want nothing to do with this.

CHOICE

Donating is a choice, its where an individual decides for themselves, now the state wants to make that decision for you unless you remove yourself.

I have opted out of the new legislation and have received rather aggressive comments, of being selfish and I should be ashamed. I am neither, it’s my body and I shall not be participating in this new Government Drive
