Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Na­tional Trans­plant Or­ga­ni­za­tion (EOM) yes­ter­day is­sued a state­ment ex­press­ing its op­po­si­tion to a bill drafted by the Health Min­istry re­gard­ing or­gan trans­plants. EOM said it ob­jects to pro­vi­sions that would al­low the do­na­tion of or­gans with­out the con­sent of a po­ten­tial donor’s rel­a­tives and would al­low the do­na­tion of live or­gans be­tween peo­ple who co­habit. EOM also ob­jects to the bill’s in­tro­duc­tion of the term “pre­sumed con­sent” and takes is­sue with the fact that it was not con­sulted dur­ing the draft­ing of the pro­posed re­forms. Last Fri­day, Yian­nis Vla­choyian­nis re­signed from his post as head of EOM, cit­ing ob­jec­tions to the or­gan bill.
