Wales: Anglican prelate denounces 'presumed consent' for organ donation
Catholic World News - September 21, 2011
The Anglican Archbishop of Wales has urged the government to abandon its plan to inaugurate a “presumed consent” policy on organ donation, assuming that all people are organ donors unless they specifically say otherwise.
Dr. Barry Morgan said that organ donation should be seen as a free-will gift. He decried the suggestion that human organs could be treated as an “asset of the state.”
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
