Saving a Life?

This week I've got more of a "would you?" rather than a "what if?"

What if you were approached to donate your bone marrow? You're a perfect match. Problem is, who you'd be helping is a truly evil person. Would you save that person's life if you could?  

A couple caveats:
  1. What you're donating doesn't have to be bone marrow, just something of a similar nature. I'm not talking about donating a kidney, though. 
  2. Defining "truly evil person": In the planning stages of this question, I imagined being asked by a prisoner incarcerated for life. But, I thought that might limit the question way too much. So, imagine someone who should be in prison (for something awful, like serial killing) but who may or may not be. However, you know about this awfulness when you are approached.  


  1. Absolutely not. Don't even have to think about it. Especially if my bone marrow (or whatever) could possibly help someone else who is good.

  2. Nope. I try not to be cruel or vindictive, but it seems like the world would be better served without a person like that.

  3. Only if the person was family.


I appreciate your comments.

I respond to comments via email, unless your profile email is not enabled. Then, I'll reply in the comment thread. Eventually. Probably.
