"Presumed Consent" to Give the Gift of Life

New laws are pushing for "presumed consent" in regards to the donation of organs with the option to opt out. Efficient? I think so. Just look at Spain.

"Virtually every survey done across the United States shows that 90 percent or more of Americans support organ donation. Considering “presumed consent” as a viable option is a natural extension of that logic." - Elaine Blerg, Prez and CEO of NY's Organ Donation Network.
