If Colorado wants a body part, give it the finger

This is truly ghoulish:
The bill changes the organ donation program so that a person is presumed to have consented to organ and tissue donation at the time the person applies for or renews a driver's license or identification card unless the person initials a statement that states that the person does not want to be considered as a possible organ and tissue donor.

Lends a whole new meaning to "trafficking in human organs." The bill is being proposed in Colorado, and the above paragraph is from its introductory comments. You can read the whole thing here.
