Making a will on organ donation

Q: If someone has instructed in their will that certain parts of their body be donated to the hospital, or a particular person, is such a will valid?

A: The validity and enforceability of such a will cannot be ruled out so long as the removal of the parts from the body does not amount to disrespect to the deceased person. Therefore, there is no objection to enforcing the will.
