Health Ministry Pushing for Major Changes to Organ Donation and Surrogacy Laws

Health Minister Yael German is seeking to amend current laws to make organ donation the default for Israelis renewing their drivers' licenses, and to enable same-sex couples and singles to have children through surrogate births.

Every Israeli with a driver's license would automatically be added to the country's organ donor list unless they explicitly refuse, under a legislative change being promoted by Health Minister Yael German and the National Transplant Center.
