MK Yaakov Litzman (UTJ) responded strongly to Health Minister Yael German’s (Yesh Atid) proposed legislation that would permit the state to automatically harvest organs from all dead Israeli without their explicit consent, unless the citizen previously signed a organ donor refusal card.

Litzman said, according to an Arutz-7 report, “This disgusting proposal has no place in a democratic, equitable and ethical state. This is clear and outrageous anti-religious [secular] coercion.”
