Donación de órganos y consentimiento tácito. Objeciones a su implementación en México

##plugins.themes.bootstrap3.article.main##

Gustavo Ortiz Millán

Resumen

 En abril de 2018 se aprobó en la Cámara de Senadores en México una iniciativa para modificar el sistema de donación de órganos. Se intentaba pasar de un modelo de consentimiento explícito, en el que quien desee donar un órgano tiene que inscribirse en el registro de donadores, a uno de consentimiento tácito, en el que todas las personas mayores de edad serían donadores presuntos, a menos que manifestaran su negativa a serlo. Sin embargo, la iniciativa se frenó en la Cámara de Diputados por la reacción adversa de especialistas, así como de parte de la opinión pública. Aquí se analizan algunas de las razones que se dieron y se hace un balance crítico para defender la implementación del modelo de consentimiento tácito en México.
