Law is entangled in politics and its shape largely depends not only on the existing needs of regulation, but also on what vision of values is represented by the legislature in power. The following article presents the current situation in German health policy, where by changing the set of norms of transplant law it is proposed to change the whole system of perception of the human body. In this case, the project introducing the new law is not a project of the ruling coalition, but we are dealing mainly with two competing cross-party projects. When the law project proposes a change in the axiology which needs a conscientiously-dependent decision the political aspect of the law takes adifferent form from the average, or disappears altogether. The following article will present thepolitical aspects of the new transplant law project in Germany. The article focuses primarily on the dynamic aspect of the politicization of law — that is, on the legislative process and the participation of experts in it, as well as on the epistemological aspect — that is, what kind and scope of research materials were used in the process of politicization of law.
