The present article analyzes the issue of removing organs from brain dead patients as a matter of fact and as a matter of law. Giving definitions of life and death, it clarifies the position of brain-dead patients. Referring to the above-mentioned definitions, traditions of the Infallibles, and jurisprudents' views, this article concludes that such a patient is a living human being whose removal of organs are not allowed.
The criticism of the arguments of those allowing organ transplant in brain-dead patients is another part of the article supporting the hypothesis of the article.
