Animal Part for Surgery
If you need a animal part to survive, are you still vegetarian if you take it?
I believe that according to commonly accepted definition, vegetarians do not EAT animals - so yes, you would still be vegetarian, but definitely not vegan.
Since you're not eating the animal, you're still a vegetarian, But you wouldn't be a vegan, because your be contributing to doing harm to that animal.
my view is similar to many native american traditions where I have rituals of showing gratitude to God and animals. I choose to not criticize people who use animal products. I choose gratitude, logic and stewardship. I avoid people who focus on criticizing others more than their own behavior
This is a false question, there is never a human body that needs "an" animal part to survive. If you take it, your are not vegetarian you are deceived, ignorant, or uneducated. (Admin comment: Using a pig or cow heart valve to replace a faulty human heart value is common. My mother-in-law had it done. So, yeah, it's a thing.)
