Cynllun Llywodraeth Cymru i gyflwyno system caniatâd tybiedig ar gyfer rhoi organau
(The Welsh Government’s plan to introduce a system of presumed consent for organ donation)

Rhys ap Gwent

The Welsh Assembly Government will introduce a system of presumed consent for organ donation in 2015. According to this scheme, if adults in Wales have not expressed their opposition to the use of their organs after their death, and in the absence of opposition from their families, permission to use their organs will be presumed by the authorities. According to the present system, the onus is on the individual to register as a donor, but if this new scheme is implemented, it will be the responsibility of the individual to deregister as a donor. This essay is a legal and ethical evaluation of the proposed changes.
