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.
    Once they've harvested the heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver, execution would be redundant.

    The organ donation system is so screwy, in my opinion. The only person who doesn't make a tidy piece of change is the organ donor. Everybody else? The doctors involved, the nursing staff, the hospitals, the organ donation bureau, etc.? Cha-Ching!!
    Could it be that the State wants to avoid the appearance that the death sentence was chosen in order to increase the available supply of organs?
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    That would be a concern, yes.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Exactly. Pretty diabolical. It's good we caught him.

    That's a good reason to NEVER make it mandatory or provide benefits/perks to any inmate wanting to donate. It's not a good reason to stop them from volunteering.

    Re: Oregon Death Row Inmate wants To Donate His Organs

    The biggest issue here would be trying to find physicians who would be prepared to engage in activities such as this. You would need to find physicians, anaesthetists and nursing staff to assist in performing these procedures. Good luck with that. Remember, they are not executioners, they dedicate their life to savings lives, not taking them. As they should.

    You've just reminded me of the "All in the Family" episode during which "Archie Bunker" received a transfusion from a black donor.

    Re: Oregon Death Row Inmate wants To Donate His Organs

    BTW: I don't like the idea of requiring organ donations in this case. I fear the need for organ donors could potentially drive death sentencing in cases where more suspects would have been acquitted and those found guilty paying the ultimate price where otherwise some might have been given lesser sentences.
