Donorcycle brings up organ donor policy, and reminds me of the Spanish model of organ donation: if you want an organ, you have to be willing to donate one when you die. You have the right to opt-out, but this automatically places you at the bottom of the donor list.
18 people die each day waiting for an organ, and countless others spend months and years on waiting lists with incomplete lives.
I have to admit, the Spanish idea sounds appealing, but maybe a little too punitive. We could probably save all those people if we just had an opt-out rule, where you’d put a sticker on your driver’s license if you didn’t want to donate.
And by the way, the sticker isn’t proof, people. Discuss your organ donation status with your family, because ultimately they decide.
