- To make organ donation compulsory and for the government to make opted out legal
- United Kingdom
DEATH. Nobody wants to talk about it, most people are scared of it but the real situation in this country is that nearly 1000 people a year die of needing an organ yet 500,000 people die every year in the U.K.
There are more then 10,000 people on the transplant list all needing vital organs to stay alive. Advances in surgical and medical drugs means that on average after a year of surgery :-
A kidney transplant works at 93%
Liver works at 91%
Heart works at 83%
And lung at 73%.
I can't tell you what a year gives to somebody who needs an organ to be able to go to the park with their children. Imagine not having to worry about countless hospital appointments.
Organ donations can change lives but the real fact is that there are not enough donors. So please sign this petition and change people's lives forever.
We, the undersigned, call on the U.K. government to make organ donation compulsory in the U.K with the option of being able to opt out.
