Comments Off on New legislation by Kerala Legislative Assembly regarding brain death

India was living with a curious legal situation in which a brain-dead person could be declared dead if a candidate for organ transplantation, but not otherwise.

Kerala has brought in a law which clarifies the issue. It lays down scientific criteria for certifying brain death and for cessation of artificial life support in that event.
