Organ Donation Consultation Response (Dept of Health)
To save more lives, the government plans to change organ donation laws in England so that everyone will be a donor unless they explicitly register an objection and opt out. As this new rule will affect every Muslim woman as well, we felt it was important we ensure that the views of Muslim women were also heard on how this new rule should be implemented. Muslim women are also likely to also play a key role in decisions taken after family member passes away. To help with our response we consulted 25 Muslim women who were in their 20s,
30s and 40s. An overview of their responses to the questions in the government consultation is provided in our report which can be downloaded above.
