This baffles me… The only reasonable thing I can see in this argument is that it will give prisons and the government more incentive to go ahead with executions to obtain the organs. Who is going to question it, after all? They are just prisoners. Ugh, who can think like that?! Most of the people in prison are not in there for rape or murder but drugs! Thus, most the people in there, should NOT be in there so we can have room for the pedophiles and killers whom actually pose a threat to society.
One thing I would like to note, though, is before we lock people away for life for murders or anything else, they need to be damn sure they have the correct person! Not only does it leave the real problem still at large, but it also is punishing an innocent soul. If this guy actually did the crimes they claim he did, then I really have no interest in him. But if unproven, without a doubt, then how can I or anyone else damn a person to death or life in prison unless we know FOR SURE we are right, with NO doubt?
I think anyone who donates their organs after they’re gone is a blessing. However, because the prison is an industry looking for death and money, I can’t help but agree that it’s a bad idea and that these prisoners will be targeted, and sent to their deaths first.
The organization that coordinates transplants across the United States said Thursday that an offer by a death row inmate to donate his organs — which led Ohio’s governor to delay his execution — is “ethically troubling.”
“Allowing condemned prisoners to donate organs could provide an inappropriate incentive to execute prisoners and could lead to significant human rights violations,” said Alexandra Glazier, head of the ethic committee for the United Network for Organ Sharing.
“Any possibility that particular groups or individuals could receive death sentences to provide transplantable organs to the public would be completely objectionable,” she said in a statement.
