I am a muslim. In our religion it is permissible to transplant an organ from a dead person to a living person whose life or basic essential functions depend on that organ, subject to the condition that permission be given by the deceased before his death, or by his heirs after his death, or by the authorities in charge of the Muslims if the identity of the deceased is unknown or he has no heirs

Not everyone can be an organ donor! Not only because of illness but because of religious reasons too. Don’t get me wrong, I applaud the sentiment behind it & I am sooooo over the moon happy about Kayla but it’s just not always in the cards for certain people.

Just curious, what religious reasons. I’m a Christian, to my knowledge it’s ok. Curious to what religions are against it.

Well a Jehovah’s witness for sure, several strands of Judaism, Budhism & Islam consist of the body having a holy purpose even after death.
