The Numbers are alarming: Three people die every day in Germany, because they receive an organ donation, even though a majority of the citizens of organ donation advocate. Three out of four Germans are even willing to donate themselves (Federal centre for health education: 2016). Nevertheless, approximately 10,000 people are currently waiting for a speedy donation. This is 10,000 955 opposite stand: 955 deceased donors, which were taken in the past year, a total of 3.113 organs.

How close this gap, it is currently being discussed in the Bundestag. At the beginning of April 2019, the Federal Minister of health, Jens Spahn, and the SPD-health expert Karl Lauterbach presented a draft law to the so-called contradiction solution. Therefore, each and every German, who has not objected to during the lifetime of a possible organ donation would come up for a donation out of the question. In Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria, France, Spain and many other countries, this rule is already in practice. In Germany, however, will have to declare their Voluntary, explicitly to make a donation ready.

Against the Background of the current debate, we would like to ask you, according to your setting. You have an organ donor card or this option is not an option for you? What’s keeping you from organ donation? Are You Afraid Of? What is this fear? Do you have a specific scenario in mind? Have you seen in your environment already an organ transplant?

Critical voices in Germany complain that the character of a donation would be lost if we don’t have to agree explicitly. The contradiction solution, not the fear of many, set out that the majority of citizens deal with the decision – and, thus, would agree. One out of every five who has decided to actively oppose a donation, gave the deck to the fear of organ trafficking. About as many said they were afraid to have, at the time of the removal of organs pain or to be mistakenly declared dead (the Federal centre for health education: 2016). In addition, the indecision of many people prevents organ transplants. As the most important reason for this lack of decision-making on 40 percent of the respondents indicate that they have employed so far to little to do with the topic.
