Full Question

Does the Church approve of donating one’s body to science?


The Church allows for donation of the body for medical research, so long as there is an appropriate committal of the body according to the Church’s guidelines for burial after the research is completed. You would need to specify in the appropriate legal documents that your body be returned to your family for burial once the research facility to which you have donated it is finished with its study.
