Sunday 31 January at 19:00 “Organ donation - the legal and religious aspects”
Some of us may have received an organ donation, or know family members, friends or acquaintances who have. Some of us may already be registered as organ donors. For others, it is something they prefer not to think about.
Organ donation raises many questions which are medical, legal, and religious such as:
How serious are the medical needs for organ donation today?
Last May the law in the UK changed in a major way, with the introduction of “presumed consent.” What does this mean?
What are the deceased’s rights and the rights of family members with presumed consent?
When does the law regard death as occurring?
What do Judaism and Islam say about the ascertainment of death, and the religious permissibility or impermissibility of organ donation?
As you will see from the details below, we have assembled an expert panel to discuss these issues online, and to take your questions. You can raise questions on the night or email them to us in advance via email@example.com if you prefer them to be asked anonymously.
The details are below:
