Change Organ donorship to and opt out rather than opt in process

Additional Information

This Is a petition to change the laws on organ donation from an opt in process to an opt out process. Every year millions of organs are wasted which are desperately needed by millions of people. The current process required an organ donor card or the deceased wished to be known before any organs can be donated this can take time and in some cases leads to the organs being useless. A change in the law could help millions of people in desperate need.
