He should be released because he's sick and tax payers should pay for the transplant if he cannot.
He should remain in prison and tax payers should pay for his transpla.nt
He should stay in prison and get the transplant if he can raise the money.
He should be released and the tax payers should not be on the hook for his care.
He should remain in prison and he should not get a new heart because he's a sexual predator..

Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
I think he should still get the heart transplant. It would be cruel and unusual punishment to deny him medically necessary procedures and would be akin to illegally giving him the death penalty. I don't like that we have to pay for it, but the state should pay for his procedure and allow him to have the heart transplant. He was sentenced to serve time, not to die or sentenced to never be released. Even in jail he still has a life.

Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
see, my question is a bit more basic. why is a child rapist living long enough to need a heart transplant?

If you have ever faced death or even almost died, you will know that it completely changes the game, or at least gives it a powerful potential to.
I believe in even a child molester's sovereignty of life, and for them to be allowed to reach out to others for support. In doing so, we not only cultivate compassion for that person over there, but for ourselves as well.
No matter what you have done in your life X that others may try to judge you for, I would extend the same courtesy to you.
Obviously the answer is "yes." Denial of healthcare is not an accepted criminal penalty.
