Human organ transplants, can work miracles, but its never a miracle when someone else has been butchered for it. This is perhaps the message of Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, in openly and publicly, condemning the trade of human organs- whereby prisoners, children, socially not well off, and other persons are stripped of their organs while still alive, or killed for them- and countries profit off "organ-transplant" tourism.

The Pope openly supports the legitimate use of Organ transplants as life saving, but demands a cleaning up of the industry: people should not be seen as "therapeutic material"(Catholic Culture 07/11/08), but as human beings. Vital Organs must not be removed from living patients.

The church also believes in respecting the bodies of the dead.
