Gordon Brown Owns You And Your Organs

by | 13th, January 2008

gordon-brown-donation.JPGGORDON Brown has “thrown his weight behind” (Telegraph) a move to permit hospitals to remove organs from dead patients without explicit consent.

Good for the ill in need of an organ. But does it mean that your body is owned by the State, unless you opt out?

And does that mean that the State takes precedence over religious beliefs?

Will the wake be enjoined by wonks playing games of Operation with the dearly departed?

Looks like another Labour Party donation problem…
