I just heard a story on the news of a death row inmate scheduled to die next week, who wants to prolong that time so that he can donate his liver to his sister, in desperate need of a new one. A parole board needs to decide whether to postpone his death or not.
Now, I'm not sure which I find more disgusting here~the fact that there is a question as to if this may not happen or the fact that they need a parole board to make the decision. Don't you think it should be a given? The man is going to die, he won't be needing it anymore.
And what's the difference between letting him die after the surgery or in jail? All they have to do is not stop the bleeding... he'll already be under anesthesia, not like he'll suffer.
This man killed an elderly woman here several years ago, so his fate is sealed. But why should his sister miss out on the rest of her life? Her brother is a perfect match, too.
This is one case, I'm hoping the parole board consists of some common sense....
