Organ Donation: A Noble Act of Charity

Organ donation is a beautiful act of charity and solidarity. One family’s generous decision in a time of unimaginable pain results in another family’s reason to hope.The Catholic Church has long viewed organ donation as a gratuitous gift, and many families have been touched by either receiving or donating organs after the passing of a loved one. Pope Francis called organ donation “a testimony of love for our neighbor.”

Organ donation is managed through state and federal law, and legislation is before the General Assembly that would update Pennsylvania law to include further education and regulations to ensure informed consent. The Pennsylvania Catholic Health Association and the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference therefore support House Bill 30 and Senate Bill 180 with strengthening amendments.
