Judaism and Transplant Surgery

SOME JEWS AGREE WITH TRANSPLANT SURGERY FROM A LIVING DONOR BECAUSE:

  • Organs that aren't vital can be used in transplant surgery b'cos it does not affect the mitzvah which says " to preserve life"
  • Transplanting dead organs is wrong, as it "playing god"
  • Judaism teaches to show love for thy neighbour, and by donating a living organ is an example of this

SOME JEWS ARE AGAINST TRANSPLANT SURGERY BECAUSE:

  • Organs created by God for an individual cannot be placed in somebody else
  • It's "playing god!"
  • It would affect somebodies Jewishness if they accepted an organ from a non Jew 
  • It is breaking the law of a sanctity of life
