    Well, they already do that. That's why they ask you if you want to be an organ donor on your driver's license

    Yes, but legal without required consent? Not donating but harvesting.

    That's basically what donating is. They take your organs when you no longer need them, and they determine that they are suitable for use.

    You cannot make something like that legal without consent. It is just unethical. A lot of religions have precedents about not disturbing the wholeness of the remains of the body.

    But hey, religion is worthless, right?

    That is correct, when one dies in an accident, they harvest your organs if you said you wanted to be an organ donor on your drivers license. But most people don't want to do it because they feel uncomfortable about it, or they don't want to be treated like a butchered lamb. Sometimes its because they want to be beautiful for their funeral, even though the knife incisions would be under their clothes (unless they have a brain transplant on day )

    Anyways, I also think that it would be nice if the government did give an incentive to say you want to be a donor. How about a tax cut in ones taxes if you are a donor? Or how bout a small sum of money going to your family for "retribution". (not too much or they might kill that uncle they hate...)

    Is it any less ethical then selling organs though?
    Or would it be more ethical and allow them to meet demand?

    As for religion you would just need a religious exemption for the ones who have those traditions.
    Like with blood transplants.

    You do realize that the legality of something has nothing to do with rather it is ethical, don't you? Two of the biggest laws we have are considered unethical by many (Abortion and Capitol Punishment) and yet they are still totally legal.

    Have you guys heard about the fellow that tried to sell one of his kidney's on ebay? It got shut down real quick and there are loads of federal laws against it. It's very doubtful that the federal government will ever change that.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there a country (I think it might have been america) That were debating that instead of signing up to be an organ donor, everyone was on the list already and you had to ring up/ sign forms to say that you didn't want to donate your organs? I know it's not entirely the same of what you were saying Arrianna but very similar.
