I am watching an old episode of Grey's Anatomy and thought of something...
Should prisoners be forced for donate their organs if they are healthy enough for donation? (ETA: upon their death, if they die in prison custody)
What about those on death row? I am not sure of the legalities, but the show made it seem as if the organs were not able to be donated after execution. Should those with healthy organs have the option to donate their organs and die on an operating table versus the needle?
I don't think they should have a choice, they should HAVE TOO. not all of them, but the ones on death row, who didn't give any choice to their victims; they should give to people who are waiting for organs. Why not?
Oooh.. Interesting idea, although I don't agree with forcing anyone to donate anything, even after death. Because my grandfather (and biggest positive influence) was granted extra years on this earth because of an organ donor, my emotional side thinks harvesting the organs of deceased prisoners is a win win. But my libertarian conscience overrules my emotions.

Hmmm interesting I'd have to tho about it and get back to you!!
Hell no. Every human should be able to die peacefully and with their organs as God created them. Yes I know they have committed big crimes possibly murdered, tortured, raped, mutilated etc innocent people. But two wrongs don't make a right.
