What about the Church's view on Organ Donors? Is there any problem with it?

Organ transplants, such as skin grafting and blood transfusion from one human to another, have always been acceptable by the church. This is extended today to include kidney transplants, bone marrow transplant and others. However in these cases the life of the donor should be considered of equal importance as the recipient. Organ donation is considered an act of charity, fraternal love, and self-sacrifice. The Church encourages Christians to enroll as organ donors in case of a sudden accidental death when their valuable organs can save someone's life.
