New Dutch organ donation drive results in massive 'no' vote - DutchNews.nl | Organ Donation & Transplant Matters Resources | Scoop.it

Recently the first step was taken towards altering the current legislation pertaining to organ donation in the Netherlands. As a result of a close vote held within the Dutch parliament the initial groundwork for implementing an opt out system for organ donation has now been taken.

Deborah Verran's insight:
It may well be that the planned move to enacting opt out legislation for organ donation in The Netherlands does not in fact have widespread support within the community. It remains to be seen how this will now be addressed.
