There’s (obviously) a load of money in “organs”. I have always wondered if some people might profit from you “didn’t make it” in the emergency room. I never mark ‘yes’ for organ donation on my drivers license renewal.

if you mark yes, here in az, yes for “organs”, means more than just organs: tissue, muscle, bones, valves, etc.

they switch tissue and organs, so you think that you are just checking organs for transplant

if your family then objects, the company here has decided that unlike in the past where a family could object to other than “organs”, now they will fight the family and take whatever

That's right- people are people, even doctors. Human nature being what it is, I don't even want to put the thought of potential profit in a doctor's head- or even the thought of 'well, he's an organ donor, his death won't be so bad, we can redeem it a little bit...'

Thoughts like that could make or break the difference in a touchy situation.
