BEIJING (AP) -- The majority of transplanted organs in China come from executed prisoners, state media reported Wednesday in a rare disclosure about the country's problem of dubious organ donations.
Despite a 2007 regulation barring donations from people who are not related to or emotionally connected to the transplant patient, the China Daily newspaper said 65 percent of organ donations come from death row.

This is just plain creepy. I would not like the idea of having organs in my body that came from a death row inmate. Would it not make you feel kind of guilty that the organs came from some one who was executed for a crime?
