MK calls for organ donor registration at voting stations

November 5, 2012 04:17

The Israel Transplant Center and Kadima MK Yohanan Plesner has asked Central Election Committee chairman Justice Elyakim Rubinstein to approve the setting up of tables at voting stations to register potential organ donors.

They noted in the letter that hundreds of Israelis die waiting for a lifesaving donor organ and that the percentage of those registered with the ADI organization remains relatively low.

If Israeli citizens are in any case waiting in the queue to vote on January 22, 2013, the transplant center and the MK said, they may as well be offered the chance to “vote for life” and register as a potential donor, which also gives extra points for the person and his family to receive an organ if needed.

ADI said that anyone aged 17 or above can register.
