There has to be a register somewhere that you resister you intentions not to donate.
The whole point of this disgusting legislation is that doctors are too fucking lazy to do things properly and take the time to find out the intentions of the deceased. If this is to come into play then your objection has to be on a register that is quicker and easier to access than asking the next of kin who one would hope would be the first to be contacted in such a situation.
A card is simply ridiculous as that places us firmly in the hands of whatever retard looks through the pockets of your corpse, an already appalling notion and is too careless to look properly and misses finding the card that says no.
I don't understand:
There doesn't have to be any register at all: there isn't one for people who want to donate, so why would there have to be one for people who don't?
All they have to do is ask your next of kin (who should know what you want anyway).
Can't account for people being lazy and not bothering.
But the guidelines can be easily set in stone in terms of that doctors/health professionals have a duty to check with the next of kin + they'd have to check for an "I don't want to donate" card.
However, if they deliberately don't look for a card, deliberately don't consult with anyone and then use your bits...but your estate/relatives/next of kin know you didn't want your organd to be donated, then they can sue the hospital.
You do know that people outside of the family look through dead people's possessions all the time?
Or are you meaning it's a breach of your rights/privacy if a police officer finds your "I don't want to be a donor" card when they are checking your body for forms of ID?
Donor cards can be missed at the moment, so no difference there. Not much in life is 100%...but if they cock it up, then whoever is left (+ who cares enough about it) sues them.
