Cardinal opposes Nigerian health bill
August 07, 2014
Citing provisions that regulate organ transplantation, Cardinal John Onaiyekan has urged President Goodluck Jonathan not to sign health legislation approved by the national assembly, according to the Catholic Information Service for Africa.
The bill “permits the trafficking in human ovarian eggs and sperm” and “does not provide for explicit donor consent for human organ transplantation,” according to a critique published by the Global Prolife Alliance.
