In an unprecedented decision, an Israeli court has ruled that the eggs of a deceased woman can be harvested and donated.
The Kfar Saba Family Court on Sunday ruled in favor of the family of a 17-year-old accident victim, allowing the family to remove the eggs of their daughter and freeze them for donation to her aunt, who is infertile, Israel Hayom reported.
It is the first time that a court has allowed egg extraction from a body.
The girl’s organs were transplanted into four other people, saving their lives, Haaretz reported.
