There are generally two options for determining rather a deceased individual's organs can be used from donation. The Opt-in policy says that the organs can not be used unless a person explicitly states that they want to be a donor, while an opt-out policy presumes a person's organs can be used unless they explicitly state they do not want to be a donor.
In the united states we currently use an opt-in policy. This bothers me since a third of all potential organs are allowed to go to waste that belonged to people who did not have strong feelings either way (ie who wouldn't opt in or opt out), and that's allot of lives lost to organ failure that could be saved; though I'm aware of the counter arguments and am not asking which policy is 'correct'
I'm wondering though rather any active attempt has been made to move to an opt-out policy? Has any politician ever campaigned on or made such a desire known as something they wanted to get done? Has any group made a real effort in doing so, and if one did what kind of response were they met with?
