The state of Maryland is trying to solve the problem of the shortage of organs sought for transplants by changing the default option on drivers licenses. It used to be you could check a box and volunteer to be an organ donor. Now, the Maryland news site Gazette.Net reports, "under the proposed legislation, you no longer 'opt in' to be an organ donor; you are presumed to be an organ donor unless you 'opt out.' That's right, from now on your driver's license application would have a box you must check if you want to keep your body organs from becoming state property."
This may strike even some advocates of organ donation as being a bit much.
