Teenagers able to register to be organ donors beginning Tuesday

15 Февраля 2017

It's also National Donor Day, a time to honor organ donors for their contributions and spread awareness about donating.

Under State law, the Registry can only be accessed to determine an individual's donation status after death and only by a federally approved organ procurement organization or licensed eye and tissue bank.

If a minor dies before they turn 18, their parents or legal guardians have the option to rescind the decision. Over 30 countries around the world, including 24 European nations, have "presumed consent" or "opt-out" policies, resulting in very high organ donation rates. There is no cost to the donor's family to enroll to be an organ donor and it will not affect the donor's medical care or funeral arrangements, the governor's office said. "This law helps turn tragedy into newfound hope for those needing a donation and I encourage all New Yorkers to take action, and get registered today".

The legislation was signed back in August.

The province said organ donors saved 380 lives in 2015 in Alberta, which was an 11 per cent increase from 2014. About 10,000 New Yorkers are now in need of organ transplants and an estimated 600 on the transplant wait list die every year, according to state Assembly Member Felix Ortiz.
