    Okay then, change the law. And while you’re at it, make it a requirement that the organ harvester should dispose of the rest of the carcass.

    That would simplify a lot of preparation for end-of-life. We don’t have to set aside money for our funeral, for a start. And since most of us travel a lot, the body would have to be transported hundreds, perhaps thousands of kilometres to where it’s going to be destroyed anyway.

    Heck, all that money could be redirected to a grand party to celebrate the life of the dear departed. I would prefer that my friends raise a beer to my memory than a damp hanky.
