Oregon Statutes - Chapter 97 - Rights and Duties Relating to Cemeteries, Human Bodies and Anatomical Gifts - Section 97.963 - Effect of making, amending or revoking anatomical gift.

(1) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (7) of this section and subject to subsection (6) of this section, in the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor, a person other than the donor is prohibited from making, amending or revoking an anatomical gift of a donorís body or body part if the donor made an anatomical gift of the donorís body or body part under ORS 97.957 or an amendment to an anatomical gift of the donorís body or body part under ORS 97.959.

(2) A donorís revocation of an anatomical gift of the donorís body or body part under ORS 97.959 is not a refusal and does not prohibit another person specified in ORS 97.955 or 97.965 from making an anatomical gift of the donorís body or body part under ORS 97.957 or 97.967.

(3) If a person other than the donor makes an unrevoked anatomical gift of the donorís body or body part under ORS 97.957 or an amendment to an anatomical gift of the donorís body or body part under ORS 97.959, another person may not make, amend or revoke the gift of the donorís body or body part under ORS 97.967.

(4) A revocation of an anatomical gift of a donorís body or body part under ORS 97.959 by a person other than the donor does not prohibit another person from making an anatomical gift of the body or body part under ORS 97.957 or 97.967.

(5) In the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift under ORS 97.955, an anatomical gift of a body part is neither a refusal to give another body part nor a limitation on the making of an anatomical gift of another body part at a later time by the donor or other person.

(6) In the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift under ORS 97.955, an anatomical gift of a body part for one or more of the purposes set forth in ORS 97.955 is not a limitation on the making of an anatomical gift of the body part for any of the other purposes by the donor or other person under ORS 97.957 or 97.967.

(7) If a donor who is an unemancipated minor dies, a parent of the donor who is reasonably available may revoke or amend an anatomical gift of the donorís body or body part.

(8) If an unemancipated minor who signed a refusal dies, a parent of the minor who is reasonably available may revoke the minorís refusal. [2007 c.681 §7]
