We don't have a use for our organs when we are buried in the ground/cremated. They will just end up rotting or burning. Why not save a life or two and donate them to somebody who could do something amazing if they survive. This should be the choice for everyone unless they opt out.

Con

over the course of time, the medical advances has brought with it new changes, especially in organ donation. the following idea of organ donation is not considering as the best option.
Firstly, it must be recognized that organ donation is risky due to not all people have a great health. Here, is the theory, if you harm one organ, then your other organs will be in danger, too. For example, some people ,who get drunk and harm their liver as well as their kidney, may not be the best suit for acceptors. therefore, individuals should be careful about themselves in the name of their safety.
secondly, it is really hard to transplant one organ to another. for example, kidney transplantation is one of the most complicated surgeons that needs both a great effort and money. thus, not all doctors give agreements for the reason that they require a vast amount of money.
Thirdly, if each individual had donated their organs before their death, the population would increase incrementally.

Wolf.j:

That's not entirely true. I did research on this topic during high school and there are a lot of articles and studies that talk about how a majority of people in the US never care to make their own choice or don't know how to declare this kind of choice. I can dig up some of the stuff I pulled then if you're interested in reading it.

it is the same thing, opting out of something mandatory is the same thing as choosing to opt in to something at will. The end of donators will be the same in the end. Your way is just more of a logistical headache.
