Delaware proposal for presumed consent in organ donations

Where presumed consent is trumped in one situation:

If designated donors have a “living will” or advance medical directive that prohibits the use of a ventilator or other devices to keep them alive — which sometimes is needed to keep organs viable until a transplant can take place — the living will would trump the donor designation.
