~ Who is in charge of your Organs? ~
Organ donation is the process whereby one's organs are `harvested` (the surgical procedure to remove the organs) and given to another individual in need of them. When being harvested, you are kept on a ventilator in order to keep ‘fresh’ blood pumping around the body. I am wanting to raise awareness about the process of organ donation and to make a policy change in terms of the consent framework around this issue. I am wanting to change; who is in charge of determining who gives the permission to donate organs of the deceased individual and changing how the organs are removed.
