While I fully support the organ donor program it will never and should never be done by default. I can understand the frustration of waiting for a donor but we shouldn't get to the point where we are harvesting from people that never consented to it. That's just wrong.

What corrupt minds would ever think that government has the right to harvest our eyes, or heart, or liver, or lungs, or kidneys unless we forbid it?

Our bodies, given to us by our Creator, are not under government control.

That is right. Just like if you don't leave a will your assets should be given to the state.
