The famed publisher of multiple pornography publications, including "Hustler," was paralyzed from the waist down in a failed 1978 assassination attempt.
His shooter, Joseph Paul Franklin, claims he shot Flynt over an interracial spread in one of Flynt's magazines. Franklin is scheduled to be executed Nov. 20.
Flynt, however, says he wants his shooter to stay alive.
Flynt spoke to HuffPost Live about his reasoning behind the decision.
