Twitter Shocked: Dutch Senate Passes Law Making People's Organs 'Gov't Property'

The Netherlands has passed a controversial new law making every citizen a potential organ donor unless they specifically chose to opt out.

The upper house of the Dutch parliament approved the new donor law on Tuesday by just a slim majority, while the lower house of parliament passed the bill 18 months ago.

Under the new legislation, every person over 18 will be included in the organ donor register unless they specifically say they don't want to be.

Every Dutch adult who is not yet registered as a donor will receive a letter asking whether or not they want to become donors after death. If they don't respond to the first letter, a second one will be sent and if it goes unanswered they will automatically be added to the donor list.
