What thinks different church about the donation after death?

Organ donation is where a person offers their organs for transplant. Their organs are given to someone who has damaged organs that need to be replaced. Before death, a person out of love and charity may donate organs not necessary for continued life and health, but to save lives; one of two kidneys, one lobe of the liver, and one lobe of one lung, blood, and bone marrow can change their lives. In the world exist different points of view about donation after death, in some cases like the church is profoundly aware that vital organs may be donated for transplant only after the donor's death and permits doctors to use “brain death” or “neurological criteria for determining death” in making end of life and organ donation decisions, but also, they thing that mainly their body is the temple of Holy Spirit and they have to respect it.

A curious religion that has a lot of restrictions, but in this topic has a different opinion is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because, believes that the decision to donate is an individual one made in conjunction with family, medical personnel and prayer. They do not oppose donation; they think that this is a decision in which anyone is able to say anything to the family of the person that is going to take it, because depends of the love and charity that this family have and the others have to respect them if the decision is affirmative or negative and the person who wants the organ need to be conscious of this.

There are a lot of different religions and each one has different point of view about donation of organs after death; but finally each person have to decide if they want to do it or not. Actually, people
