I hope this doesn't turn in to a huge debate about 'opt out' being 'another' way of the government controlling what we do with our lives.....lol...I hope he can put himself across well and can explain how much it means to every single person affected by the transplant process....regardless of your role in it!

I just thought that I'd let you know that I have submitted a question which I hope will be asked and responded to. Here is what I've said:

"All us transplantees welcome this news, however, l have heard that the relatives of the deceased still have the final say on whether organs can be used or not. It's like a person who carries a donor card even now, in the event of that person dying. The relatives can still say no to the use of organs. There needs to be a change in the law as l think the wishes of the donor should be sacrosanct,honoured, and respected".

Lets see what happens....
