If it become mandatory then millions of people can get benefit and make their life better after transplantation. I am in the favor of donating organs and will vote for this matter.

No, it should not be mandatory law.

"Donation" is voluntary.  You are talking about involuntary taking by law -- essentially, the government confiscating organs from dead people who didn't want to donate them.  

This is unconstitutional under the Fifth Amendment's so-called "takings clause" :  "No person shall . . . . Be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without
due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use,
without just compensation.
Also, some religions (Orthodox Judaism and Jehovah's Witnesses, for example) forbid organ donation.  Forcing people to give organs if their religion forbids it is also unconstitutional.  See the First Amendment.

I think that governments should do all they can to encourage organ donation, but never try to force it by writing unconstitutional laws which violate the Bill of Rights.
