I welcome this law and would like to see it enacted in every state and
country. People are on waiting lists for years sometimes for organ
transplants while perfectly good organs are being buried with their dead
containers.  I would encourage a law that would make a body property of the
state upon death to be used in the most beneficial way to help the living.
With the exception, of course, of a body that has arranged to be cryonically
suspended upon death.
