Yes but they were never a part of the EU nor where they kicked out of the EU. Eurotransplant deals with European countries alone so I don't know what you are referring to. What were they kicked out of? "Despite these efforts, illegal organ trafficking continues to thrive and can be attributed to corruption in healthcare systems, which has been traced as high up as the doctors themselves in China, Ukraine, and India, and the blind eye economically strained governments and health care programs must sometimes turn to organ trafficking. Some organs are also shipped to Uganda and the Netherlands. This was a main product in the triangular trade in 1934." "The organization HODS (Halachic Organ Donor Society) is working to increase knowledge and participation in organ donation among Jews throughout the world." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organ_transplant Illegal organ transfer happens you see everywhere but mostly in under developed nations. Religious dictates would only affect those who are religious.
