Teenagers able to register to be organ donors beginning Tuesday

Teenagers able to register to be organ donors beginning Tuesday

Roughly only 24-percent of New Yorkers are enrolled as organ donors but that number could jump drastically very soon because of a new law going into effect Tuesday.

"This new law is a balanced effort to help in this administration's efforts to expand state's donor registry and help more New Yorkers receive the gift of life", Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

Twenty-five hundred Albertans register every week to become organ and tissue donors, with one donor potentially saving up to eight lives.

Meanwhile, the administration has revealed few details about the crucial intelligence it says was gathered during the operation. Given the latest reports, Kristen Welker of NBC News asked Spicer whether he would still characterize the raid as a "success".

The new law permits parents of 16 and 17-year-olds to still revoke the organ donation decision of their children.

Each day about 21 people die because they did not get the life-saving organ they needed in time, according to theIndiana Donor NetworkIndiana Donor Network. "Enrollment in the Registry should improve and lives will be saved". Procedures and controls built into this process ensure the authenticity, integrity, security and confidentiality. The greatest need both state and nationwide is for kidneys.

The state's Donate Life Registry is a confidential, computerized system that registers a person's consent to donate his or her organs after they die.
