Organ donation laws need "tidying up"

7/03/2007 14:20:03

Parliament is being told proposed law changes on organ donation need to be tidied up. The Human Tissue Amendment Bill aims to establish a register so people can declare whether or not they wish to be an organ donor.

Bioethics Council spokeswoman Dr Marie Bismark says the consent framework set out in the Bill is ambiguous and confusing. She says if their members had difficulties coming to terms with it, then members of the public and medical professionals would face a similar problem.

The Bioethics Council wants clear rules of veto included in proposed law changes over organ donations.
