(b) A donor's revocation of an anatomical gift of the donor's body or a body part under section 327-6 is not a refusal and shall not bar another person specified in section 327-4 or 327-9 from making an anatomical gift of the donor's body or a body part under section 327-5 or 327-10.

(c) If a person other than the donor makes an unrevoked anatomical gift of the donor's body or a body part under section 327-5, or an amendment to an anatomical gift of the donor's body or a body part under section 327-6, another person may not make, amend, or revoke the gift of the donor's body or body part under section 327-10.

(e) In the absence of an express, contrary indication by the donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift under section 327-4, an anatomical gift of a body part is neither a refusal to give another body part nor a limitation on the making of an anatomical gift of another body 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 327-4, an anatomical gift of a body part for one or more of the purposes set forth in section 327-4 is not a limitation on the making of an anatomical gift of the body part for any of the other purposes by the donor or any other person under section 327-5 or 327-10.
