I think it's kind of noble, in a way, and certainly against all we think about cold-hearted, inhumane, killers that some would consider giving of themselves to save a life when what they've done in the past was take a life.
It would raise questions, however, about how a death row inmate would be killed in order to secure organ harvesting after the fact - I'm not a doctor and don't know how this would be done. There's also the question of the families of victims wanting closure and getting it through seeing the person who murdered their loved one put to death - would be interesting to see how they feel about that person "living on" in this form. People who have loved one's organs donated after they pass often say that they feel the death had meaning and that their loved one lived on and they often become friendly with the person(s) who received the organs.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
I don't see a problem with it.
Although, this is before the executed, afterwards, I'm not for sure what affect the drugs used in lethal injection would have. But since it's Oregon and he will die of natural causes years before someone actually thinks to execute him, go for it.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
My only concern is are the organs tainted from execution? If yes then no, if no then do it!
Yes they should be allowed to donate. I would even go so far as saying that if they're willing to donate the method of execution should be based on whatever is least likely to cause damage to the organs being donated.
Yes I would absolutely accept an organ from a death row inmate if I needed a transplant.
If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.
If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
