Death Row Inmate Seeks Delay to Donate Liver

I'm continually amazed by the compassion shown by those who have received none.

Gregory Johnson is scheduled to be killed by the state of Indiana on May 25, but on Monday he begged the parole board for enough time to donate his liver.

"My sister is sick, she needs a liver," Johnson said.

"At this point, everything else, including my own life, is secondary to trying to help her if I can."

Quite a Christian sentiment from someone the state has found utterly irredeemable....

But I'm sure we'll hear right wing outrage at this request, much like we heard outrage when the Supreme Court decided we couldn't kill children.

Crazy huh?
