Pregnant mothers will have to document their childbirth with a licensed physician within 24 hours of giving birth, according to a law approved by the Knesset's committee on the interior Tuesday. The law aims at combating infantile abuses such as organ selling by documenting childbirths and monitoring infants during the early months when such abuses are most likely to occur. "This law was created in light of the current trend of home births that makes monitoring infants very difficult," said MK Ariela Golan (Shinui) who sits on the committee. The law will come up for vote in the Knesset plenum next week.
