What does the Bible say about organ donation / donating blood?



Question: "What does the Bible say about organ donation / donating blood?"

Answer:
Obviously, since the Bible was written at a time when organ donation / donating blood was impossible, the Bible does not directly address this question. Since the Bible does not specifically say, I believe that a decision of this nature can only be made between a person, their family, and God. A person should prayerfully consider what God would have them to do in regards to donating their organs upon death (James 1:5; Philippians 4:6-7), or donating their blood to help others. If you feel led to donate your organs or give blood, then there is no reason you should not. If you do not feel led to give blood or donate your organs, you should not feel guilty about it and you should not allow yourself to be coerced.
