Last day I saw a show about a woman that was saved by a young man who died and whose lungs were donated to her. He was under-age, so his parents made the choice for him.
It led me to start thinking about whether or not it should even be an option if you die. Personally, I believe that it should be a mandatory thing, though I do understand that the main reason it is a choice is because of religious beliefs in the matter.
Which then led me to consider this: In almost all religion, preservation of human life is pinnacle, correct? Why then would someone deny a dying person the organs they need when that person then expires? I mean, I know that in many religions if the body is not "whole" it is not accepted into heaven, but I don't think this is true in Christianity, which is mostly what I'm thinking about at the moment.
In any case, I know that legally, it encroaches on a person's right to religion. What do people who value the institution of religion think?
