What various religions say about donating body parts/ (Religious Society of Friends): No official position on donation, believe organ donation and transplantation is a matter of individual conscience.

While nearly 90,000 people in the United States are awaiting a life-saving organ transplant, as of the end of July, only 4,700 people had donated organs, according to the United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS), which oversees the national waiting list.
