Certain denominations such as Jehovah's Witness and Christian Scientists seem to discourage organ donation, while others support it.
What is the basis for this doctrine?

In a certain miracle Jesus appears to give someone new eyes in John 9:6. I think that organ transplants can be theologically underpinned by the miracles of Jesus. Therefore I believe there's enough biblical evidence to say that it's okay and encouraged to get an organ transplant. These bodies of ours, though made in the imago dei or image of God, are earthly and formed from the dust. The real value now is in receiving new salvation and thus promise of resurrection from the dead and with it a new body, not the one we presently have.
