If you do NOT want to be an organ donor
(I, Cris Ericson, do NOT want to be an organ donor!)
then please note that the Vermont Legislature
passed an organ donation law in
Vermont that
allows them to take your organs and
sell them
unless you have previously made a legal
document
or have two witnesses swearing you do
not want
to donate your organs and allow the
hospital to profit.

The problem is that they PRESUME that
you want to donate your organs,
and poor people are OFTEN not aware of this,
nor are they inclined to pay money
to make and file a Will.

Cris Ericson posted in the past her opposition to
this proposed law,
but it was passed into law anyway.

PRESUMED CONSENT OF ORGAN DONATION.
OH, REALLY?
WHAT A CREEPY WAY FOR THE STATE OF
Vermont TO MAKE MONEY because
“presumed consent” is
NOT “informed consent”! (etc.)

This is the law, as passed, despite my
complaints.
THIS NEEDS TO BE REPEALED
AND FORCED ORGAN DONATION NEEDS TO
BE MADE ILLEGAL UNDER FEDERAL LAW!!!

§ 5250g. Refusal to make anatomical
gift; effect of refusal
(a) An individual may refuse to make an
anatomical gift of the individual’s body or part by:
(1) an advance directive executed
pursuant to chapter 231 of this title;
(2) a record signed by:
(A) the individual; (etc.)

The problem is that they PRESUME that
you want to donate your organs,
and poor people are OFTEN not aware of this,
nor are they inclined to pay money
to make and file a Will.
