However, currently people don't carry a donor card for two reasons: they don't want to donate OR they are not allowed to donate.
I am a gay man and I am therefore not even allowed to donate blood. I haven't looked into it but I guess that I am not allowed to donate organs either.
Presumably, I would be obliged to carry a do-not-donate card to make sure my gay organs are not used after my death or perhaps I would have to go on some register. There is my problem. This can be seen as a gay registration act.
I don't see that as a good thing, somehow.
