More information about transplantations :
Transplantation, donation and reception of organs is not allowed if the organs are of vital importance, such as the heart, both kidneys, liver, etc. Organ transplantation is nowadays almost exclusively performed in clinically deceased people who have died of brain death. Brain death is pronounced when the brain is so damaged that the person is certain to die soon (but is still alive at the moment). Because in this case the organs are still alive and fresh, the transplant has a greater chance of success than transplanting organs that are no longer alive. Brain death is not real death. Death is the separation of soul and body. In clinical or brain death, the person is still alive, the blood is still circulating. Therefore, the only real death is the death of the heart, when the blood ceases to circulate.
So-called organ donation involves vital organs, taken from a living person who is only brain dead, ie still alive. So it’s a murder and a suicide.
