    They probably are. Isn't a blood transfusion very similar to an organ transplant? You're taking something from a donor's body and giving it to someone in order to preserve their life.

    If he wants to I don't see why he should be barred from doing so. Perhaps he's just trying to right the wrongs he did, nothing wrong with that.

    Well, they could always tell people if the donor was an inmate or not, not revealing the person's identity of course. Then, let the patient make the choice.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Cal will be accusing the government of being too liberal and therefore soft on criminals in the next thread.

    No. The method of execution in Oregon is lethal injection. If some other method is arranged, then Yes. This appears just to be a way to keep from having the sentence carried out. Chances of an organ match is minimal anyway.

    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.
    If he would agree to this, then I change my vote to yes. I just fear it's a plea to stop the execution as it causes conflict in the system.
