Why is it not morally and legally OK to let a person sentenced to death end himself in dignity?


When dismissed from a company for a crime, my employer allows me to leave in dignity. They do not throw me out like dirt. When sentenced to death for a crime, why cant they allow me to commit suicide in dignity rather than hang me on their noose?

    DNA has proved convicted felons to be innocent. Are you going to abolish the appeal system and throw the advances of DNA out the window so that a convicted criminal can kill himself or be forced to kill himself. Innocents have been executed.

    JThomp42 based on your past writings, I think to believe in the sanctity of life. Innocent people have been freed because of DNA test results, or a witness admitting they lied. Do we really want to execute people or imposed mandatory suicide?
