    Excellent point.

    hanging is the best possible solution then since the guillotine is not legal in the USA

    electrocution, poison gas (brutally painful) firing squad and lethal injection are all ruinous of organs. Hanging not at all

    Saying that Obamacare has a death panel system is ridiculous. And thank God! that every healthcare system in the world has rationed care.

    They can harvest the organs while under anesthesia then after the surgery, they can carry out the execution before he wakes up. Gosh, that sounds morbid!

    Another concern would be exposing the recipient to communicable infections like hepatitis and HIV. Former prison inmates cannot donate blood I think due to the prevalence of prison rape. If they can be sure the organs are free from disease, I think its a great idea for the condemned to leave this world having done something good for humanity.

    Voted yes to donation and yes to accept an organ.

    Judge not......esp when it comes to necessity.

    That's not true. Now that I've thought about it, the drugs they use to execute people aren't poison. I believe they use an over-dose of anesthetic or something else to paralyze breathing. I don't think these drugs are ruinous to organs. If they were, it would be ridiculous to even discuss the possibility. And people have been moving to allow prisoners to donate their organs for years.

    I will defer to you on that claim. I KNOW electrocution and firing squads and gas chambers ruin the organs. given all the different drug cocktails used to lethal injections, I don't know

    I think they first give them tranquillizer type drugs as a act or mercy considering the emotional trauma of knowing they're being killed is likely to have. Then they give them drugs that stop the heart from beating.
