    Oregon Death Row Inmate wants To Donate His Organs

    Two questions: (poll is multiple choice)

    1. Should death row inmates be allowed to donate organs?

    2. Would you accept a donation from a death row inmate?

    Here is the story:

    NEWBERG, Ore. (AP) – Oregon death row inmate Christian Longo wants to donate a kidney to a Newberg man so desperate he’s been standing on a corner with a sign asking for an organ.

    Longo says he and other inmates would be interested in donating organs if they were allowed.

    In 2003, Longo was sentenced to death for killing his wife and three children on the Oregon coast. He has become an advocate for inmate organ donation and wanted to donate his organs after his execution. Gov. John Kitzhaber’s moratorium on executions in 2011 halted that idea.

    Also, on a side note:

    he’s been standing on a corner with a sign asking for an organ
    Quoted for lulz.

    If I need a pair of kidneys I'm not going to bitch about the donor being a jerk.

    Yeah? And?

    Even if it was the other way around, I'd say yeah. However, in this case, I care less about the morality of the donor as I do about the organ that's going to save my life.

    I think it's a wonderful idea and can't imagine why there'd be any resistance to it at all. In fact, I can't imagine why it isn't available to them.

    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!!

    No because I don't want to become a killer myself and clearly that is how this works.

    No. For one, the conditions they are living in don't exactly speak to organ health to begin with. Two, their organs will be useless after death (lethal injection doesn't leave the organs in a transferable state). Three, it's likely a delay tactic or a move for greater priviledges or money.

    While I'm not opposed I wouldn't want to be exuberant about it. In China the first thing that a person arrested for a capital crime gets is a physical exam. If they pass the trial is put at the top of the list and when convicted the execution is prompt so that the organs can be harvested and distributed to their party elites. As harsh as our govt in America has become on some issues I wouldn't want to encourage that direction.

    Actually, that's a piss-poor reason to allow people to die for want of a kidney. Our organ transplant system is pretty secure. If it isn't? Make it so.
