All Major Religions Support Donation
With the exception of Shinto and Gypsies, all major religions throughout the world support or permit organ and tissue donation, with most viewing it as a humanitarian act of giving. Transplantation is consistent with the life-preserving traditions of most faiths, and others consider donation a matter of personal choice. Many religious groups have issued formal statements supporting the idea of organ and tissue donation, which are available online. Individuals are encouraged to consult their religious leader with specific questions.
