Another Reason to Stand Against the Death Penalty


Paul House, convicted of killing and raping a woman in 1986, freed from prison 22 years later.
He was scheduled to be executed next month.
How can one be against abortion but for the death penalty?

How can one be anti-abortion and pro-death penalty? Because every single aborted baby is 100% innocent of crime worthy of death. Parental irresponsibility and selfishness should not result in the ending of a life.

You know how few are the result of rape or incest, or truly endangering the life of the mother, such as the case with the young girl in Mexico.

"Choice" should begin and end with using appropriate birth control.

but that man above was 100% innocent too. There are dozens others who were innocent too but were sentenced to death, only to be found innocent later. That's not mentioning those who might have been innocent and were executed but nobody knows they were.
If the death penalty is not abolished, more innocent peoplw will be killed.

I wonder how one can be against abortion and support the killing of millions of innocent Iraqi's? Are those kids and people not as important as the ones being aborted?

I disagree with the death penalty for the same reason innocent people do get killed!

Failure in the Judicial system is the reason why someone innocent would be put to death. But a murderer or a serial rapist, or a child predator is better off dead than on my tax money!
As for Abortion vs Death. Well, those babies have done nothing wrong.
It's true that SOME innocent people might end up put to death. But 100% of the aborted lives are innocent. The difference is huge.

Howd you like to be the one that got failed during the judicial system, bet you wouldn't take it so lightly than would you! If it was your mom or brother or father! A life is a life, lets see if your opinion changes when its your family member who is accidentally put to death!!! I bet you suppoert this stupid war in Iraq too don't you and you are a republican!!! You can spot'em everytime!

Qwaider, serial rapists don't get executed. About murderes, I may agree with you that some ugly nasty crimes deserve a death penalty. The argument is that once you allow death penalty, a lot of innocent people will be sentenced to death. I really don't want to be that person on the death row just because I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Jad, I saw that movie, a pretty good one even though it's fictional.

S.A. Cicily, I'm not talking about the Iraq war, that was a terrible crime to start with

Fetuses are not 100% innocent. They, like all people, are guilty of original sin. In addition, some percentage of them will grow up to be criminals - perhaps even murderers or serial rapists. If a few innocents are offed in the process, well, that's just collateral damage...

I understand you are not talking about the Iraq war Im just making the point that people support all kinds of killing but are against abortion. It makes no sense!

Just note the date, brand, model, whether it's electric or gas, and the size of the tank. Whatever you set out to do, it is almost always best to have a guide, a scheme, a guide for how you plan to do it. Of course you will still have to scrape your dishes before you put them in, but the disposer is there for those thing that you have overlooked or missed. Charcoal used comes from coconut husks.
