Organ donation should be mandatory when people die. It saves another person's life and it's not like you need it anymore. it should be a least mandatory if it fits a child. The person whose life you save could then continue to live and could even be the person who finds a cure for cancer.
The risk may be small but people certainly shouldn't be forced to take it. This patient woke up right before doctors were about to harvest her organs!
Even if they eliminated this risk somehow they are still your organs, not the government's organs. Organ donation is a personal choice.
Many cultures provide strict guidance about funerary customs. Bodies should
be buried within a certain number of days, for example, or handled in particular
ways. After a person has died, his or her body is not the business of medical
science. Its handling becomes a private issue, and often a matter of intense
concern to those left behind. No medical practitioner should have the right to
override these concerns.
Different people have different
beliefs. You can’t just make one blanket
law and make it apply to all people.
America is supposed to be a country that has freedom of religion. In some people’s religion, the dead body is
sacred and is not to be violated or tampered with for any reason.
