EWTN.com - brain death: "brain death
Question from wondering on 10/10/2008:
Since brain death has come into question when retrieving vital organs for transplant, can a Catholic in good conscience go through the process and recieve one?
Answer by Judie Brown on 10/10/2008:
My humble opinion as a non theologian is that it is not moral to receive a VITAL organ, but it certainly is moral to receive transplants that do not require the possible taking of another's life.
