Autonomy: An opt-out system obviously has the potential for someone who does not want to donate an organ to become an organ donor, simply because they did not opt-out. In Wales it was estimated that up to 30% of the population did not know the system had changed. On the flip side, at the moment only a third donate organs despite 90% believing it is the right thing to do – so perhaps the opt-in system is the one removing patient choice?
