Sec. 19a-289g. Effect of anatomical gift, amendment, revocation or refusal.

      Sec. 19a-289g. Effect of anatomical gift, amendment, revocation or refusal. (a) Except as provided in subsection (g) of this section and subject to the provisions of subsection (f) of 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 under section 19a-289d or an amendment to an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part under section 19a-289e.

      (b) A donor's revocation of an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part under section 19a-289e is not a refusal and does not bar another person specified in section 19a-289c or 19a-289h from making an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part under section 19a-289d or 19a-289i.

      (c) If a person other than the donor makes an unrevoked anatomical gift of the donor's body or part under section 19a-289d or an amendment to an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part under section 19a-289e, another person may not make, amend or revoke the gift of the donor's body or part under section 19a-289i.

      (d) A revocation of an anatomical gift of a donor's body or part under section 19a-289e by a person other than the donor shall not preclude another person from making an anatomical gift of the body or part under section 19a-289d or 19a-289i.

      (e) In the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift under section 19a-289c, (1) 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; and (2) an anatomical gift of a part for one or more of the purposes set forth in section 19a-289c 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 section 19a-289d or 19a-289i.

      (f) 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.

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