The Egyptian Parliament is considering a move to ban Christians from buying transplant organs from Muslims.
Michael Munier of the U.S. Copts Association says the move is strictly a matter of discrimination against Coptic Christians by a group associated with the Muslim Brotherhood. “The excuse they are giving is that they are trying to limit rich Christians from buying organs from poor Muslims — as if all Christians in Egypt are rich and able to do such a thing,” he chides.
Indeed, according to this video, some of Egypt’s Christians have been forced to literally live off garbage.
Munier notes that the proposed law would not ban rich Muslims from buying organs for transplant from poor Muslims — and he suggests the West should be concerned because the law could have fallout elsewhere.
