Are You An Organ Donor?
« on: February 16, 2018, 09:28:59 AM »
Fwiu almost all orthodox Jews are not allowed to be organ donors.

Is this everyone's stance? What is the justification of it not being sakanas nifashus to use the organs?

Are they afraid it might go to a goy? I know it is PC Friday but I am at a loss for words.

Not valid. You don't get to pick and choose.

When you are an organ donor you don't get to choose who it goes to.

Lets say Catholics were not allowed to donate organs to xyz. As a Catholic you would not be able to be an organ donor.

The issue is called "kovod hames" loosely translated "dignity of the dead", we don't want to take apart dead people, for that same reason jews do not allow autopsies
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

the only organ allowed is the kidney because you can live a healthy life with only one

I know plenty of people that have been kidney donors, with recipients being Jewish and non-Jewish.

Let me clarify, it appears JJ is referring to being a registered organ donor, something (in NJ) you do at the DMV, and is marked on your license. It is when one dies from injury not sickness, most of ones organs are still healthy, so after death they can be used for a person in need.
Not "donating an organ" which is done alive, and you can chose to who, which we jews do
