MOSCOW, April 29 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Health Ministry has drafted a bill over the donation of human organs, parts of human organs and their transplantation. The document bans the taking of the organs from the underage orphans, aide to the Russian health minister Lyalya Gabbasova told a press conference here on Monday.
“For the first time the term “donation of the human organs” was defined,” she noted. One of the most important provisions of the new document is the defining of children’s organ donation. The bill permits the (posthumous) taking of the organs from children. “This is permitted with the will expression given by the parents,” Gabbasova noted. “The taking of the human organs from the underage orphans is banned,” she noted.
The taking of organs from children is fully banned according to the effective legislation.
