The Human Rights Commission of the Romanian Senate favorably voted a draft law on Tuesday according to which persons who did not refuse to donate their organs will be considered as organ donors after death, through a presumed agreement, Romanian news agency Mediafax informs. In order to become law, the draft needs to pass the vote in both Houses of the Parliament.

The bill is set up by members of nearly all political parties. It introduces the notion of presumed agreement which basically means that if a person while alive did not refuse to donate their organs, then upon the person's death he/she is considered for organ donations.

Moreover, the draft law rules that organ transplants without any consent, excluding the presumed agreement is a felony and will be punished with sentences of five to seven years in prison.
