Default Organ donation, churches stand on it.

What does the RCC moral stand on giving organs, like a kidney, or say if one dies
their heart, etc. Thank you in advance.

Default Re: Organ donation, churches stand on it.

2296 Organ transplants are in conformity with the moral law if the physical and psychological dangers and risks incurred by the donor are proportionate to the good sought for the recipient. Donation of organs after death is a noble and meritorious act and is to be encouraged as a manifestation of generous solidarity. It is not morally acceptable if the donor or those who legitimately speak for him have not given their explicit consent.
It is furthermore morally inadmissible directly to bring about the disabling mutilation or death of a human being, even in order to delay the death of other persons.

If you want to hear something seriously scary, listen to these homilies from Audio Sancto:

According to this story, more than 18 people die every day waiting for an organ. Now THAT's scary.
