Dying Cardinal Pledges “Organ Donation”

Cardinal Nicholas Cheong Jin-suk, 89, the former Seoul Archbishop, South Korea, pledged in 2006 to donate “his organs and corneas,” KoreaTimes.co.kr (March 3) writes.

Cheong was hospitalized on February 21 and opted not to receive life support treatment.

The newspaper quotes a further 2018 document signed by Cheong where he writes, “If possible, I would like to donate my corneas.” So, it is unclear which of his organs he wants to donate.

While the corneas can be removed from a dead person and used again, all other organs must be removed from a living body, killing the person in the process which is immoral.

The KoreaTimes.co.kr article’s evident intend is to use the Cardinal to propagate immoral organ donation.

"While the corneas can be removed from a dead person and used again, all other organs must be removed from a living body, killing the person in the process which is immoral." Thank you for pointing this out. (One kidney might be taken.) I have read that when organs are removed from a "dead" person, anesthesia is given -- why do that if the donor is dead?
