Vatican says Pope Benedict is not an organ donor

Pope Benedict became an organ donor in the seventies. As soon as he became pope, he was no longer a donor. Because the Catholic church owns his body now.

Polish Archbishop Zygmunt Zimowski, head of the Vatican’s health office, told La Repubblica newspaper that it was understandable that a pope’s body remains intact because it belongs to the entire church.
