    Default Should someone who says no to being an organ donor be eligible to receive one?

    This was the question being asked on a new show (the one with Chrissie Swan) that I found an interesting concept. What does everyone think?

    No, I don't think they should receive.
    I also think organ donation should be opt out not opt in.

    Default Re: Should someone who says no to being an organ donor be eligible to receive one?

    Yes I do. I don't think anyone has the right to deny anyone else medical assistance, unless the person who needs the assistance refuses it. It's too slippery a slope.
    I do think it shpuld be opt out, though.

    DF won't donate, and he won't accept to receive. I think you will find a lot of non donators will be the same.

    I agree with FearlessLeader. I think everyone should be entitled to medical assistance. Although I really think they need to be encouraging more people to become organ donors. I know a lot who aren't purely because they can't be bothered and probably never think of it.

    It's interesting, i'm not sure what i think.
    I am not an organ donor, i'd like to be but have some issues about it atm - don't want to go into it or be judged about it so i'll leave it at that.
    Would i feel okay to excluded from receiving an organ? Yes, i would. I feel a bit funny about the idea of having someone elses organ in me so for now i would happily opt out of organ donation/receiving.

    I wouldn't want them to die just because they said no.
