Catholic doctrine holds that any person who has not been cremated after receiving an organ or tissue donation is to be regarded as a human person, and to be kept in the state of perpetual life. According to the Catholic Church, this is contrary to the teachings of Scripture, the Fathers of the Church and the Doctors of the Church. The teachings of the Catholic Church also indicate that cremation is a grave sin. (Pope John Paul II, “Evangelii gaudium”)
According to the Catholic Church, no one can receive an organ or a tissue donation while in the state of mortal sin. This is not merely a statement of scientific fact, based on science, but a statement of faith, based on the Catholic Church, the Second Vatican Council (Amoris Laetitia), and on the common Catholic sense of human justice, which has always held that human persons are not completely innocent. According to the teachings of the Catholic Church, no one with a severe problem is to be allowed to receive an organ or tissue donation.

In a recent interview, Jenner discussed having experienced that in her early years as a transgender woman. As a 20-year-old transgender woman, she had a mastectomy, a breast implant, and a “big fat boob job.” It was an arduous procedure, and also expensive—the $3,000 spent on the procedures was more than she could ever expect to earn working in the fashion industry. I asked her if she could share her story today, when there are so many new options and resources out there for transgender people. We spoke via Skype for several hours.
