Sec. 7. (a) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (g) and subject to subsection (f), 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 4 of this chapter or an amendment to an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part under section 5 of this chapter.

(b) A donor's revocation of an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part under section 5 of this chapter is not a refusal and does not bar the person specified in section 3 or 8 of this chapter from making an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part under section 4 or 9 of this chapter.

(c) If a person other than the donor makes an unrevoked anatomical gift of the donor's body or part under section 4 of this chapter or an amendment to an anatomical gift of the donor's body or part under section 5 of this chapter, another person may not make, amend, or revoke the gift of the donor's body or part under section 9 of this chapter.

(d) A revocation of an anatomical gift of a donor's body or part under section 5 of this chapter by a person other than the donor does not bar another person from making an anatomical gift of the body or part under section 4 or 9 of this chapter.

(e) In the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift under section 3 of 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 under section 3 of this chapter, an anatomical gift of a part for one (1) or more of the purposes set forth in section 3 of this chapter is not a limitation on the making of an anatomical gift of the part for any of the other purposes of the donor or any other person under section 4 or 9 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.
