Transplantation Act

In Germany, organ donation is regulated by the Transplantationsgesetz (TPG). The specifications are under “Richtlinien für die Wartelistenführung und die Organvermittlung” and from Bundesärztekammer (BäK) defined. When approving the removal of the donor organs, Germany has regulated what is known as the decision-making system.
The fact that this regulation has caused such a stir among politicians here in Germany and has led to the vote with “No to contradiction solution” is due solely to the ignorance of the so-called “health politicians” of some parties.

Comparison of these regulations “OPT-IN” and “OPT-OUT”:

opt in aimation

opt-in organ donation

The possible organ donor is determined by the family, which decides on the inheritance of the organs. If the potential organ donor did not leave a declaration of intent to donate an organ during his lifetime, the family has sole decision-making power. In most cases this leads to a “no”. If there is no one who can make a decision, no organ removal is carried out. If anything, that someone is available for organ removal is very small, and with this regulation this small number of organ donations in Germany is also wiped out. In this case, an organ donor card is a very important link in this very difficult time.

opt-out organ donation

A possible organ donor must have voted against it during his lifetime, otherwise you are an organ donor. Everyone here automatically becomes an organ donor, and the family does not have to take on the burden of making a wrong decision. The fact that this regulation has caused such a stir among politicians here in Germany and has led to the vote with “No to contradiction solution” is due solely to the ignorance of the so-called “health politicians” of some parties. With this regulation, everyone is asked to think about this important procedure during their lifetime and to make their decision, for example with an organ donor card.
