(LifeSiteNews) – English law will now allow the state to “presume consent” for harvesting organs of those declared dead.
The new law that came into effect last week grants the government authority to take organs from those certified as dead unless the person had specifically registered that they do not want their organs to be used. The government says the law was changed “to help save and improve more lives.”
A similar law has existed in Wales since 2015. In Scotland legislation assuming consent to organ donation will come into force in March 2021. CONTINUE
