baby organ donation
Question from marie on 03-20-2014:
Hi Judie, I've just read an article about donating organs from still born, brain dead babies.....

http://www.nbcnews.com/health/kids-health/littlest-donors-neonatal-organ-donation-offers-hope-tragedy-n51436

The red flags went up for me. As a mother I can't imagine the terrible pain these parents go through losing their child, but what is the church's stance on this kind of thing? Organ donation can be a blessing for the recipient, but how can we be sure it is being done morally and ethically? Thanks Marie

The short answer to your question is that it is not ethical. For a full explanation, please note this article from the Catholic Education website. http://catholiceducation.org/articles/medical_ethics/me0019.html
