Katy Gallagher has proudly announced that from now on when you renew your licence you’ll also have an organ donation form pushed your way to remind you to think about the issue.
- The ACT Government will now be able to distribute Australian Organ Donation Register (AODR) Forms with driver licence renewal notices through Road User Services, the Minister for Health Katy Gallagher MLA announced today.
The Minister said that the changes had arisen following an approach from a member of the community late last year suggesting that this might be a strategy to increase organ donation rates.
While no-one outside of fringe nutters is actually against organ donation I can’t help but notice that people get extremely resistant when they feel they’re being badgered on the topic.
Anyone remember how the sight of Kerry Packer calling for more organ donors created a drop in donations?
