Because everyone is entitled to my opinion...
So let me get this straight... S.C. has pending legislation that will allow prisoners to donate an organ in exchange for smaller sentences? Gee, can we just donate a head of time then go over to S.C. and commit a crime?

First, how do we know that the organs are in good condition? Granted I know some of yall will be thinking that they will have to undergo medical tests. That's probably true at first. What happens when that becomes too expensive? BTW, who is going to pay for the prisoner's stay in the hospital and recovery time? After all, it's the state deciding who can donate and who can't. We are talking about the same people that want to raise taxes every year...because they can't make do with what they've got. If we can't trust them with money, should we trust them with someone's life??

Okay, so it's only six months off the sentence but for me it is the principle of the matter. Donate Life South Carolina is on the right track. This completely "muddies the water". People should donate because they want to donate. People should not donate if they want something (but a good feeling) in return. Otherwise, why not open up the market for organs? I got two kidneys. I can live with 1. I could use $100,000. But I can't do that because that's illegal.
