    Now The Liberals Are After My Organs...

    In my state...

    Connecticut State Sen. Ted Kennedy Jr. (D-Branford) — son of former U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) — wants to give state government control over what happens to citizens’ organs after they die.

    Kennedy recently introduced SB 750, which would automatically enroll Connecticut’s citizens in the organ donation program.

    “It’s a bill that would seem to indicate that the state owns your body unless you say otherwise.”
    “If people want to donate their organs after death, I have no problem with that at all, but it should not be coercive in any way,” state Sen. Len Suzio (R-Meriden) told the local Connecticut newspaper The Record-Journal.

    As is the case in most states, citizens currently must choose to opt into the organ donor program. Were SB 750 to pass, however, the state would automatically assume a citizen’s consent and could harvest his organs after death, unless he went through the proactive process of opting out of the program beforehand.

Love, by definition, seeks to enjoy its object.” C.S. Lewis

    That's it. You need to start drinking and smoking more. Also don't skip your vitamin B(acon).

    Seriously, though, if I die suddenly and some of my organs can save someone's life, let 'em have it. I'm in paradise anyway.

    I have no problem with donating organs - IF IT IS YOUR CHOICE!

    It is- you can opt out if you don't want to do so, much like opting in now. See no reason why it might be a bad thing personally.

    I wouldn't care. I won't be using them anyway. Somebody else might as well.

    Yes, I am a donor.

    The article mentions this, but from what the local news reports say, it will be difficult to opt out, you have to actually go to the State agency.

    You know what they're gonna do, Seer? The death panels are gonna take your organs away before you're actually dead. It'll be like a reverse abortion.

    Seriously, stop fetishizing every element of choice.

    The government should pass a law that claims all of your assets unless you opt out.
    I could see that being good for the treasury.

    I think these things should be the choice of the family.
    Actually YOU put Trump in the White House. He wouldn't have gotten 1% of the vote if it wasn't for the widespread spiritual and cultural devastation caused by progressive policies. There's no "this country" left with your immigration policies, your "allies" are worthless and even more suicidal than you are and democracy is a sick joke that I hope nobody ever thinks about repeating when the current order collapses. - Darth_Executor striking a conciliatory note in Civics 101

    I think the government should be able to take your organs at will.
    After all, a kidney isn't a sentient being and as such it has no rights.
    It is like some sort of parasite growing in your gut - plus, you have two of them and you should be compelled to share.
