For Islamic State, it’s OK to harvest organs from living donors to save Muslim lives
By Vittorio Hernandez

According to Fatwa Number 68, “The apostate’s life and organs don’t have to be respected and may be taken with impunity,” quotes the New York Daily News. The committee points to Islamic principles and laws that suggest “transplanting healthy organs from an apostate’s body into a Muslim body in order to save the latter’s life or replace a damaged organ” is okay.

Because of reports that the IS killed 12 Mosul physicians who refused to harvest organs from alive people, Iraqi Ambassador to the US Mohamed Ali Alhakim sought a UN investigation in February.
