Death Row Inmate Wants To Donate Organs

By Jim McCoy Fri 21st March NewsChristian Longodeath row inmateorgan donations
Oregon death row inmate Christian Longo wants to donate a kidney to a Newberg man so desperate he's been standing on a corner with a sign asking for an organ. Longo contacted KGW (http://bit.ly/1phTT3S) after its story on Kevin Gray of Newberg who has kidney failure and is on a donor waiting list. Longo says he and other inmates would be interested in donating organs if they were allowed. In 2003, Longo was sentenced to death for killing his wife and three children on the Oregon coast. He has become an advocate for inmate organ donation and wanted to donate his organs after his execution. Gov. John Kitzhaber's moratorium on executions in 2011 halted that idea.
