Prime minister wants more organ donation in UK

AP/Yahoo News, January 14, 2008
Britain prime minister Gordon Brown is lobbying for overhauling the country's organ donation system to make it easier for doctors to remove body parts from deceased patients without prior consent. Brown noted in an opinion piece that more than a thousand people die in Britain each year waiting for organ transplants, and switching to a different system could save thousands of lives. Patients' rights groups are skeptical about the plan.
