Israel took organs from the dead…without permission

Ewww and just WRONG!

The revelation came from an interview with Dr. Yehuda Hiss, former head of the country’s Abu Kabir forensic institute, which was broadcast on Israel’s Channel 2 this weekend. “We started to harvest corneas….Whatever was done was highly informal. No permission was asked from the family,” Hiss said in the interview. The “harvesting” occured in the 1990’s.
The Israeli military confirmed the practice took place but said: “This activity ended a decade ago and does not happen any longer.”

Well I certainly hope so
