    Another Democrat bringing the nanny state to fruition. Why not allow for the sale of organs? God forbid we turn to the capitalism for answers.Report

    It seems the clear upshot of this post, then, is that the architecture is adaptable to public preferences (opt-out/opt-in as compared to “mandated choice,” which is obviously a complete misleading name for a policy in which officials are merely “mandated” to ask you your preference, with neither opt-in nor opt-out being the default). This hardly seems like a condemnation.Report

    I’m curious what the spectrum is here as government gets more involved in what it think the choice should be: for example, by providing a little blurb after the organ donation question that says how many children were saved by organ donors alongside a picture of a smiling child; or, more drastically, by waving the license processing fee, etc.Report
