Wales: government seeks ‘presumed consent’ for organ donation
Catholic World News - January 09, 2013
Lawmakers in Wales are poised to take up a proposal that would make “presumed consent” the standard for organ donation, thus eliminating the necessity for individuals to consent to becoming donors.
The “presumed consent” policy, if adopted, would allow doctors to remove organs without showing that the individual had volunteered to be an organ donor, and without permission from the donor’s family.
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
