Modern science and technology offer several options of dealing with a human corpse, other than a traditional funeral. It seems that the range of available choices will widen with time. Each step of the way involves a question of decency and respect for the corpse. Making a human being and human dignity a point of reference for moral judgment, and acknowledging a special status of a corpse and its parts, as a thing closely connected with a person, one can approve of only such deeds that do not threaten a person’s dignity by subordinating it to other purposes. Those deeds should help a person to grow in love, life and health, to know oneself. The situation when a human corpse is treated as a means to an end that does not concern a person must be seen as despicable.
