there is a new law in Wales about donation of vital organs :
There are currently two key laws governing organ donation and transplantation in the UK: The Human Tissue (Scotland) Act 2006 and The Human Tissue Act 2004 (England, Wales and Northern Ireland). New legislation – the Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013 – will come into effect in Wales on 1 December 2015. When the new Welsh law comes into effect, unless a person living in Wales has expressed a decision not to be an organ donor then they will be regarded as having no objection to organ donation. This is called a “deemed consent” system, or as it’s popularly known, a “soft opt out” or “opt out” system.
But there are now transplantations possible on living persons, considered to be death:
Types of donation
There are three different ways of donating an organ. These are known as:
- donation after brain stem death
- donation after circulatory death
- living organ donation
The problem is that some situation is considered as a death but isn’t really a decease, because the heart is still working, the blood is still circulating e.g. brain stem death, the soul is NOT separated from the body.
So you have to ask a formular at the town hall and protest that you don’t want to be donator after “death”. Otherwise donation of a vital organ (organ needed to live : e.g. heart or two kidneys) will be murder and suicide.
Of course a donation of not-vital organs (one kidney e.g.) is an act of charity.
Deo gratias !
