Internet & Networking "Starting today, users in the United States and UK will be able to add that they're organ donors to their Timelines, and if they're not organ donors, they can find links to official organ donation registries and instantly enroll." A commendable effort, but for some reason, I find it quite creepy, too. What if you leave your Facebook open and someone enlists you? On a related note - if you're not registered as a donor yet, please consider doing so. It might save someone's life.

Donating your organ is not being slaughtered and cut up like a pig. Nobody earns money unduly from it, this is not a commerce; and it is to save the life of people with only a few months or hours to live.

So yeah, good one, EU. Actually saving lives.
(Actually supposing this has to do with the EU. In France, it predates any EU legislation.)
