Although well intentioned, does the end justify the means? I mean if people or a person really wanted to "give the gift of life" through the parting out of his/her organs one would have assumed that their wishes would have been documented.
I don’t mean to diminish the need of those that are waiting for transplant organs; However, the assumption that at death ones body becomes a pick-your-part commodity is in my mind ghoulish at best. Say in an accident you lost your "do not desecrate my body card", or you left home without your wallet where it was located, or the person attending to you just thought that your parts were just to good to pass up on and misplaced that card…
An individuals rights in death as to how their body is to be handled according to their wishes should supercede the states wishes regardless as to how well intentioned. In the absence of direction as to an individuals wishes, the presumption should be that their body not be disturbed. Simply put, it is called "respect".
