Organ donation, a simple (final) solution

There’s been a lot of guff about organ donation in the news lately.

Opt in, opt out? Be more like Spain, or more like China? Pay donors or not?

I have a simple solution:

We already have a stratified system – people have either said ‘yes, I’d like to donate my organs after my death’, or they haven’t responded.

Those who are on the ‘yes, harvest me’ list should be eligible for transplants if they need them. Those who aren’t? No transplants for them.

Can’t say fairer than that.
