To the "Europe is sooo messed up" files...
... please add the quote below:
Brain-dead patients in France are presumed to be organ donors unless they have made explicit provisions to the contrary, and approval by next of kin is not normally required.Wow, no opportunity for abusing that policy, especially given the utilitarian bent in medicine these days. If I weren't young and in quite good health, I think I would seriously consider avoiding travel abroad, with some of the policies they have.
Given his general thoughts on organ donation, I'm sure Old Oligarch would have a field day with this, were he blogging at present.
