    I started reading a new book tonight that doesn't focus on this but mentions it.
    It's called the harvest, where murderers are sentenced to death through organ donation. They are put to sleep and their organs harvested to help save lives of those more deserving. It is an interesting concept, any thoughts.

    The book is on Wattpad and is called the "Arena of Justice".

    I think it's quite interesting. Somethign which annoy me in our nowodays society is that there is a lot of interest in criminals, and much less in the victims. Mercy to the wicked is cruelty to the benevolent.
    I have a small hesitation considering death penalty because of the risk of killing someone innocent. The life of an innocent is something which has a near unlimited value. Everything should be done to preserve it, and prevent any harm to happen to that life. But without death penalty, criminals end to be free because there is almost never a true perpetuity sentences, I could observe that in my country.
    Violence is a language, and the only language that some human trash understand. Sentencing them to death can be a good way to get rid off those enraged dogs and using their organs can be a good way to make them usefull, more usefull than when they were alive.

    Putting the ethical debate aside it’s a terrible idea to ever give a government that kind of power.

    Oh I agree, but what if it was voluntary...the condemned choose this option...in some ways it may redeem them...sacrificing your life for that of another and all...and would probably be the most humane option...similar to voluntary euthanasia

    Sure if it’s voluntary. It’s your body, your life, you have the right to end it if you want. I was under the impression you were talking involuntary.

    The book I read it was government controlled, but I agree too much govt. But if it was made voluntary and private...no relatives viewing...though I think relatives of victims should have first claim to organs if they are compatible. I don't know what how that would set with the victims as I have never experienced anything that serious.

    I would support the idea even if it wasn't voluntary.

    I suppose if it meant life or death you probably wouldn’t care. But if you have an organ inside you of a person that killed someone important to you that probably would be a strange feeling.

    Hmm, maybe those sentenced to death could be given a choice? If they choose to consent to donate their organs, they get a 7% chance of avoiding the death penalty and just getting life in prison.
    There could be a giant wheel of chance they could spin.
