Re: “Lawmakers Ponder Organ Donation Policy

"So Rachelson and 10 cosponsors authored a bill that would presume all Vermont adults consent to being organ donors unless they specifically opt out. That's the practice in some countries, including Spain and Austria, but apparently in no U.S. states."

This is the United States where citizens have individual liberties; not some country where the government is in control of many aspects of peoples' lives, even after death.

"In retrospect, she said, she might have found another way to word the bill."

The ultimate elitist attitude. If I say or word it differently people will do as I say. How about we just get the "opt in" back on drivers' licenses? No amount of re-wording this is going to make it palatable. I am all for organ donation, but to assume someone's consent is just another situation of passive coersion, even after someone's death.
