On Monday, members of the Union, the SPD and the Left want to introduce their bill for such a so-called contradiction solution in Berlin. Everyone could suddenly be on a donor organ dependent, argued the SPD-health expert Karl Lauterbach in the short message service Twitter. “You don’t want to donate, you should have at least objected to.” “Spiegel Online” had first reported about it.
the German press Agency is Provided according to information in the draft that all persons are informed from 16 years and registered as a donor, unless you disagree. You should be able to revise your decision at any time.
