What started as an anti-vax protest hashtag has led to a huge influx of people registering as organ donors.
The hashtag has been trending on Twitter and was started by anti-vaxxers as a way of protesting what rights they have over their bodies.
In good old anti-vaxxer fashion, people jumped to Twitter to try to spread the hashtag and the revelation that they had control over their own bodies.
The argument given was that this was a kind of last bastion where you’re allowed to say no to something regarding your own body. The ‘movement’ immediately looked selfish and thoughtless.
#NotAnOrganDonorAnymore because I’m allowed to say no to this, but not to the jab. Oh, the irony. Why do I have more rights over my dead body than my alive body??? https://t.co/1eSK76zmqI pic.twitter.com/TsSir6f3Eu

While a few people seemed to get on board with the ludicrous personal protest that would only end up hurting people, thousands of others saw this as a reminder to register as organ donors.

#NotAnOrganDonorAnymore I have been registered as an organ donor for years. Since this hashtag has started I have decided to double check my registration and book a time to donate blood! Thanks antivaxxers, never would have done this without you!
