I'm Obligated to Give an Organ to save Another Person?

The Divine Code for December 27, 2022

Today: Page 373

Topic Chapter 7:8 - 8:1a

A person is not obligated to donate a kidney or another organ (even if removing the organ is not life-threating) in order to save anohter person.

There is no permission for one to save one person's life by taking another person's life.

So for example, one cannot take a heart from a donor if that person is still alive or if it is known that this person will die within a very short time.

Curious about the whole page? You can read it in The Divine Code.
