Yes, I think so. As FL said every person has the right to receive medical care. And yes it should be opt out.

Everyone should be entitled to receive medical assistance but I think a priority system might work. Say:
1) emergent cases where the patient is a donor (or not a donor only for medical reasons)
2) emergent cases where the patient is not a donor
3) non-emergent cases where the patient is a donor
4) non-emergent cases where the patient is a donor
So if there are two people who both need a heart transplant just as urgently as each other and one is a donor and one isn't, the donor should get first priority.
I also believe it should be opt-out.

Sorry for being ignorant but what do people mean by it should be opt out? Do you mean that everyone should automatically be an organ donor unless they apply to opt out of it?

Yuck..what a horrid suggestion. medical ethics is not comprised of a user pays system..we help people if the ability is there.
What next? Refuse transfusions or blood products to people who aren't blood donors?

Its a hard one, as like anything there is a grey area people that cant donate for health reasons, Should they then not be eligable ?? if so then no i dont agree.
What about children ?? should a child only be able to receive an organ if they agree to donate if they dont make it? how can we put that on a child ? or how can we put that on a mother or father.
Organ donation in my opinion should be opt out not opt in, But i dont think if someone cant donate that they shouldnt be able to get one, I very much doubt that my DD could ever be an organ donor ( not something we plan on finding out ever) but i would hope that wouldnt make her ineligable to reveive one as we know that there is a high possiblity she will need a new GI system at some point in her life
