Letter to Tony Abbott Leader of the Opposition in Australia on Organ Donor Outrage


Hi Tony,

Kevin Rudd has allocated $151 M to increase organ donor rates the we get an increase of
25% or 80 new donors for 2010. Yes that is not a typo 80 more than 2009.
that works out at $1.8M per new donor.

The outrage is that I need to get my mum’s permission to donate my own organs even
after I have registered on the Organ Donor Register.

Imagine we have over 1.5 million registered donors on this register and we all need
to still get our mum’s or family members permission to donate.
Surely this is a terrible restriction on my rights to donate my organs and if removed would allow so many more
registered donors to have their desires met to donate.

I hope you can help me get my rights to donate my own organs.
