To clarify some of the discussion points others have raised:

Is this the equivalent of suicide, which is currently illegal?
Should a prisoner have the right to choose his sentence?
Is making him live past his execution, against his will, cruel and unusual punishment?
Should the governor have the authority to commute (is that the right term?) the sentence of everyone on death row, simply because he doesn't believe in the death penalty, even though his state does and,in this case, the prisoner does?
Does this become state assisted suicide?
