SECTION 23-18.6.1-8


   § 23-18.6.1-8  Preclusive effect of anatomical gift, amendment or revocation. – (a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, in the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor, a person other than the donor is barred from making, amending, or revoking an anatomical gift of a donor's body or part if the donor made an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part in accordance with the provisions of this chapter.

   (b) A donor's revocation of an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part shall not be a refusal and does not bar another authorized person specified in this chapter from making an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part.

   (c) If a person other than the donor makes an unrevoked anatomical gift of the donor's body or part, or an amendment to an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part, another person may not make, amend, or revoke the gift of the donor's body or part under the provisions of this chapter.

   (d) A revocation of an anatomical gift of a donor's body or part by a person other than the donor does not bar another person from making an anatomical gift of the body or part under the provisions of this chapter.

   (e) In the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift in accordance with this chapter, an anatomical gift of a part is neither a refusal to give another part nor a limitation on the making of an anatomical gift of another part at a later time by the donor or another person.

   (f) In the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift in accordance with this chapter, an anatomical gift of a part for one or more of the purposes set forth in § 23-18.6.1-4 is not a limitation on the making of an anatomical gift of the part for any of the other purposes by the donor or any other person under the provisions of this chapter.

   (g) 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 donor's body or part.

   (h) If an unemancipated minor who signed a refusal dies, a parent of the minor who is reasonably available may revoke the minor's refusal.
