      MK Litzman Against Automatic Organ Donation

      Former deputy health minister Ya'akov Litzman came out, Tuesday, against a proposal by Health Minister Yael German which would consider all drivers as organ donors unless they sign a declaration to the contrary.

      The United Torah Judaism Member of Knesset said, "This is a bizarre proposal that has no place in a democratic, equitable and ethical state. What we have here is clearly outrageous anti-religious coercion." Jewish law is against organ donation except to save lives.
