62. I'm Not the Extremist Here
Respect for the wishes of the deceased has several millenniums of history backing it.

The idea that a person has a right to receive new body parts is the newer, more radical idea.
The idea that a natural death should be prevented is the newer, more radical idea.

In China, human rights groups say, citizens have been executed for nonviolent offenses like taking bribes, credit card theft, small-scale tax evasion, and stealing truckloads of vegetables. Political dissidents have also been sentenced to death. Chinese embassy officials did not respond to requests for comment, but in the past the government has denied promoting the for-profit organ trade.


Perhaps you should move to China if you feel so strongly that organ donation should be mandatory. They seem to agree with you.
