Organ donation as a method of death penalty?
I am for it, in fact i have started a petition for it here.
[release]We should allow legal organ donation by inmates on death row; and make it a form of death penalty for criminals who agree to this method and are medically able to donate organs. Our current death penalty does not allow inmates on death row to donate organs. I believe that organ donation should be a form of death penalty. Even individuals who are against the death penalty should realize that this would be a better alternative to our current methods.
Benefits to death by organ donation include:
1. Humane- With this method the individual would be put under anesthesia prior to the operation. The individual would feel no pain in their passing.
2. Organs save lives- The organs donated could be used to save lives. There are many people on transplant lists who may never find a donor. A single organ donor can save eight lives.*
3. Save tax Dollars- Insurance companies and the organ recipient pay for organ donations, this could save tax payers money that is currently used on expensive death penalty methods.
Organ donation as a method of execution would be more humane and cost effective than our current methods. We have the opportunity to save innocent lives.
If you are against it please discus your reasoning.
