Crime Poll: Organ Donations From Prisoners

By May 3, 2013

Follow me on:

GAVE is an organization founded by Oregon death row inmate Christian Longo. Its purpose is to remove bans that prohibit prisoners from donating their organs and tissues for those in need.

Longo founded the organization after he was denied from giving a healthy kidney to a friend in need and from donating his body after being executed.

According to the United Network for Organ Sharing, there are over 120,000 people waiting for donated organs.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested
to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just
so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
