The new questions on the Driving License Form regarding organ donations, are as follows:
- Yes, I would like to register
- I do not wish to answer this question now; or
- I am already registered on the NHS Organ Donor Register.
The PR put out by the Government shamelessly admits the intention is to “drive up” the number of organ donations.
Looking at the way the questions are phrased, and the absence of any chance to write a straightforward NO, it appears to me the Government are also protecting themselves against legal challenges in the future, where organs have been removed without the patients consent. A thoroughly disgusting and abhorrent prospect, although right along the lines of other proposals and deeds of this miserable bunch of ministers!
I had understood the planned change was to go from an “opt-in system” to an “opt-out procedure.
Like referendums in the EU, there is no OUT, the question will merely be asked again and again!
