A condemned killer saving a life before losing his own? I think that's a great idea. In fact, this should be an option for everyone who is sentenced to die. It should be strictly voluntary, of course. It would be another way of exectution. Instead of strapping the condemned to a gurney and executing him, he would be put on an operating table, his organs harvested, then the plug pulled on him afterwards. IMHO, this would not be considered cruel and unusual punishment, but would be a way for a condemned to show his remorse by saving a life, while sacrificing his own. Many lives could be saved.COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's governor delayed the execution of a condemned child killer to consider the inmate's unprecedented organ donation request, acknowledging that it's "uncharted territory" but expressing hope that the man might help save a life before losing his own.
This should be a voluntary option for EVERY condemned killer.
