Nationwide, about 120,000 people are waiting for organ transplants, Pongonis said, and registries need to grow if they hope to dent that figure.
About 1 percent of all deaths in Ohio occur while a person is on ventilator support, which is required for harvesting organs, she said.
Lifeline workers have seen older donors pull out because they thought medical conditions or illnesses would disqualify them from donating. Our real hope is that people wont pull themselves out without making an informed decision, she said.
Ohio joins nine other states that do not ask donors whether they want to stay on the registry.
Those who are not will continue to be asked to register.
Donors still can remove themselves from the list by requesting a status change when they renew their licenses or by going to the BMV website, Cheryl Grossman, a Grove City Republican, said she pushed for the amendment this summer to reduce the number of questions asked at the BMV counter and to help increase the number of registered organ donors. 30, 5.24 million Ohioans were registered organ donors, up from 5.19 million a year ago.
