my body, Sir Liam Donaldson.
The Chief Medical Officer wants everyone to be treated as organ donors after their death, unless they explicitly opt out of the scheme.
Sorry, Sir Liam. If I die, those who need it are welcome to any part of my body which might be useful. But it is my body to give (by permission of my family), not yours to take. If this proposal is adopted, I will opt out.
I am a gentle and mild-mannered person. However, I do not think I would be the only one. I do not accept that the state owns my body.
