COLF and the Catholic Health Association of Canada explain why the Catholic Church supports organ donation and transplantation. The leaflet encourages people to talk to their family and friends about this issue, emphasizing that "organ donation is not an obligation: it is an act of self-giving." The leaflet also addresses xenotransplantation (the use of animal organs) and the cloning of human embryos.
