The rules should be simple. If you are an adult you need to be listed as willing to be a donor in order to receive an organ and if you are a minor then your parents need to be listed as donors. Heck, maybe we should make being a donor automatic and you would need to opt out in order to keep your organs when you are dead. Anyone that opts out would be ineligible to receive a donated organ.

@jdlellis1, do you realize that the current organ transplant guidelines were established by medical professionals in 2005?

creepycatz, I like your thinking. Why should someone unwilling to donate their own expect to receive an organ? If you agree with this concept, check out Lifesharers.org, an organ donor list for people who are as willing as they are to receive.
