"Inmate Seeks to Give Last Kidney to Daughter" (Dec. 5), involving California inmate David Patterson, has sparked my emotions for a few reasons. This situation should not be about medical ethics, or if the taxpayers should foot the bill. This is about saving this little girl's life, which her father might be able to do.
If Patterson is willing to risk his life for his daughter's, then I say go for it. It seems like our society has gotten so cynical that we cannot see the greater good anymore. If we cannot see the greater good, then what are we all about?
