I'm sure you've all seen the news over the last 24 hours regarding Gordon Brown's announcement that he is in favour of changing our system to one of opt-out (where it would be presumed that you wanted to be an organ donor unless you registered your wishes that you didn't or unless your family knew of any key reason you did not want to be one at the time of death).
You may have even seen/heard me either yesterday or this morning (Sky, Channel 4 and 2 radio stations).
Anyway what I would really really like (please) is to hear some of your opinions. I am genuinely curious, and contrary to most other areas of organ donation don't hold a strong opinion one way or another when it comes to opt-out. Some people's misconceptions are concerning but I am hoping ongoing publicity will help iron those out.
So please, annonymously or with your name, whoever you are, tell me. What do you think. Opt in or opt out? And more importantly why....please be brave, I could do with hearing what others think.
Then I shall cheat and construct a post in a few days using all of your genius comments. Or something.
