Organdonasjon

Why can’t it be included on a persons driving license if they want to be a donor?

To take a standpoint on organ donation shouldn’t cost anything and that is how we want organ donation to be. Many people in Norway don’t have a driver’s license. Also, and contrary to a drivers license, there is no lower or upper age limit to be a donor. A driver’s license in Norway is issued for a long period of time, which could make it difficult to change your mind about organ donation.

In some states in the USA labeling a driver’s license for organ donation is practiced, however, it has not contributed to an increase in the number of organ donations in the USA. Whilst in Sweden, a ‘transplant law’ is being established that states it is not necessary to label a person’s driver’s license for organ donation.
