Yesterday Gov. John Kasich issued a stay of execution for Ronald Phillips, 40, who was scheduled to be put to death today by a lethal injection of a two-drug combination. Ronald Phillips was convicted rapping and killing his girlfriends 3 year old daughter.
Why? Because Ronald Phillips asked this week to donate a kidney to his mother and his heart to his sister. His attorney said it was an attempt to do good, not a delay tactic.
Gov. Kasich said that his reason for granting this last wish was because the loss of one life could grant two others life. The new execution date has been set for July 2nd. Some people are upset because tax payers are going to have to pay for Ronald to be alive for another 8 months. All medical cost will be paid by the Phillips family for the transplants.
Do you agree or disagree with Gov. Kasich’s decision?
