      As far as i’m aware no organs are removed from your body unless you have said they can. It’s possible to voluntarily join something called the organ donor register, which means doctors know you want you organs given to save someone if you die. Next year the rules will change though and everyone who can be a donor (some people can’t because of illnesses they have) will be put on the register. If people don;t want to have their organs taken they will have to tell the NHS.
