Death Penalty--Organ Donation
Original post made by Paul Losch, a resident of Palo Alto, on Jan 1, 2010
I just got done reading (and I am catching up on a bunch of stuff) about a person on death row who wants to end his legal appeal process, be legally executed for his crimes (which are horrible), and donate his healthy organs to those who need them.
Here's just one of the implications: is the execution timed to help donate an organ to someone on a liver, heart or other such list?
The article I read is in the current issue of Esquire magazine for those who care to read it.
