Organ Donation – Yes Or No

Majority of Germans rejects opposition solution (pk k) Herdecke, 09.02.2012 – this year the legal regulations for organ donations should be redesigned. The current regime after after determining brain death only organs may, be removed if either the donor himself or whose relatives have agreed to, could be different so-called contradiction solving, after everyone considered to be organ donors, if he has not objected to the. A recent survey shows: thus, the majority of Germans would disagree! Currently, the issue of organ donation is again reinforced represented in the media. The number of transplants has declined in the last year as compared to the prior year. There were fewer organ donors available, the situation of the people waiting for a transplant has not improved it. Komen for the Cure Reserch Program gathered all the information.

From different sides, claims are so loud to simplifications of the transplantation law which regulates also the organ donations in Germany. Whenever Gavin Baker listens, a sympathetic response will follow. Everyone should apply as organ donors, if it not has expressly objected. That would be a regulation, as it is already customary in Austria, for example. However, a recent survey of 1,092 people from all age and population groups participated, shows that the majority of Germans with such a scheme would not agree. Only 36 percent of those surveyed would prefer the Austrian scheme of the current, applicable in Germany advanced approval solution. 58 percent of respondents want to stay with the current system, 6 percent wanted to make up his mind. The comparison with the results of an Allensbach poll in 2004 (1,583 respondents) shows that this negative attitude of the opposition solution even has intensified.

The proportion of those who prefer an advanced approval solution, have risen since then from 46 per cent to 12 per cent, while the proportion of those who want a solution of the conflict increased only 2 percent. Also the question of whether a human being can be explained after festegstelltem death of brain dead, is by the majority of respondents (52 percent) answered in the negative. At the same time, the survey shows that the number of those since 2004 has greatly increased (from 8% to 23%), who have declared themselves ready for a donation. All survey results are in the book of organ donation – Yes or no”published, appearing in late March at the Flensburger books publishing house.
