Israel: Organ donors to get transplant priority

    This is an interesting way to get organ-donor numbers up. Exactly what the thread topic says: if you're an organ donor, you get priority if you ever need a transplant. Medical ethicists appear mixed, according to the story.

    Story also mentions the idea of implied consent, whereby you would have to take your name OFF the list, rather than putting it on.

    Thoughts, anyone?

    I have no problem with implied consent

    So this is basically like the take a penny, leave a penny tray at 7-11.
    Except it's take a kidney, leave a kidney.

    Why is it that the link won't load in Firefox and took a good 10 minutes or so to load in IE?

    Someone's probably trying to make a call. 'Bout time you made the move away from dial-up, no?
