Two groups battle over possible changes to organ donation law
HARRISBURG, Pa. —
There's a battle going on inside the Capitol over organ donations and the reasons why coroners and medical examiners deny donations.
House Bill 30 would bring changes to the states organ donation laws.
On one side you have organ donation groups, like "Save a life PA," they have a problem with coroners denying donations.
On the other side, you have the PA Coroners Association that says there are investigations coroners need to look at and they can't release the organs.
The coroners association has an issue with how the bill is written, which would allow organ donation groups rights to a body prior to a coroners investigation.
Save A Life PA says this legislation is about saving lives.
