ABSTRACT
The article discusses the challenges if death row prisoners are allowed to donate their organs after their demise. Except for some states in the U.S. like Oregon which uses a stable dose of barbiturate that leaves the organs intact, most of the states execute prisoners with a drug cocktail that effectively destroys their organs. Observers also worry that prisoners may carry HIV or hepatitis.
