"Roue le Jour" On Organ Harvesting

Roue le Jour almost nails the issue of organ harvesting over on Samizdata (comment 31 in response to Laird):
"It is meaningless to prohibit something without an associated penalty. What is the penalty for removing organs without permission?"
It isn't meaningless, but it is very likely to be without consequence; you're dead so you can't do anything about it, and if your family and friends dare try, they are up against the State itself. Which gets us to the important question: how do you defeat the State?
