Mitropolit of Serbian orthodox church in Montenegro Amfilohije said that the law for donation of organs is the best law adopted in the parliament so far, and publicly promised that he will donate his organs.
”I heard of the law that was passed in the Parliament about, as I like to call it, giving the organs as gifts, for those who are ready to donate their organs in the right way after their death for the health and benefit of those who remain living. There are some good laws that the parliament has passed, but I have to say that this is one of the best ones that the Parliament has adopted so far”, said Amfilohije to radio Antena M.
As he said, the law is within the spirit of the original evangelistic rules of thinking and living.
“By this giving of the Christ the church of Christ has been led throughout centuries”, said Amfilohije adding that he will donate his organs.
”I will tell you right now that Amfilohije will donate his organs, if anyone happens to need his old organs. They can peacefully take any of my organs so that someone has some use of the mitropolit”, said Amfilohije.
As Amfilohije said, this will not be the first time that a bishop signs up for organ donation, stating that bishop Lavrentije did it too.
