In the light of the recommendation from the Organ Donation Task Force to reject the idea of ‘presumed consent’ – meaning that unless people opted out of the register or family members objected, hospitals would be allowed to use their organs for transplants – Lib Dem Voice last week our readers the question:Do you think it would be right to introduce presumed consent for organ donations?
Our poll swayed back and forth during the week, but in the end a narrow majority of you voted in favour of ‘presumed consent’. Here’s what you told us:
• Yes, I do – 50% (210 votes)
• No, I don’t – 44% (185)
• I don’t know – 6% (25)
Total Votes: 420 Poll ran: 17th-24th Nov 2008
