I have asked to end my remaining appeals, and then donate my organs after my execution to those who need them. But my request has been rejected by the prison authorities.There are tens of thousands of people waiting for organ donations. Longo's article says 19 die every day. So why on earth would his request to die and donate be rejected?
There is no law barring inmates condemned to death in the United States from donating their organs, but I haven’t found any prisons that allow it. The main explanation is that Oregon and most other states use a sequence of three drugs for lethal injections that damages the organs.Here's an idea, how about making an exception and using a method that preserves organs? I know, that's just too difficult for government bureaucrats to figure out. They'd rather just stick with their idiotic rules. Longo is a piece of human garbage who should have been executed years ago. But even he wants to do the one decent thing he has left to offer. Oregon should immediately grant his request.
