Should executions be permanently banned worldwide? If you answer affirmatively, please continue.
A ten-year moratorium on U.S. executions ended on January 17, 1977, with the execution of Gary Gilmore by firing squad in Utah. If you believe executions should be banned permanently, please copy the list below and rate each of the reasons as "1" (irrelevant) through "10" (highly relevant):
Executions should be banned because they:
a) kill the innocent
b) target minorities
c) are expensive
d) are inhumane
e) target the poor
f) don't deter murders
g) are ungodly
h) grant too much power to government
(i) make murderers of us all
(j) don't really help murder victims' survivors
(k) other reasons
Yes, just last week someone was supposed to be executed here in the U.S. and the execution went wrong, putting the man in a painful vegetative state until he died several hours later. This is absolutely horrific. Who are we to decide who lives or dies?
"Who are we to decide who lives or dies?" Don't we make this choice with abortions? Just sayin'.
Did I say I was pro-abortion? Cause I am not. But thank you for assuming.
I wasn't actually making any claim to you, personally. Just that if one is going to make a distinction for one practice - which metes out justice to someone who has committed an abominable act - then it should extend to unborn babies who have not.
I am uncomfortable with the death penalty because I am human, and despite the barbarism a percentage of humans display toward their fellow man, taking the life of another person strikes most of we humans as unnatural. At the same time, because I am human and a mother, I also feel that the carrying out of monstrous acts against the innocent goes against all human decency (such as the crimes against 19-year old Stephanie Nieman, victim of the man, Clayton Lockett, who was executed in OK). Lockett had a heart attack; she was raped and buried alive. So no, I can't say I am against a worldwide ban, and certainly not when it comes to cold-blooded murderers and rapists. Anyone that maintains executions of murderers don't help the victims' survivors may be interested in this statement released by the family of Stephanie Nieman http://www.kjrh.com/news/local-news/okl … on-lockett
Well egad really? "if you answer affirmatively please continue" i.e. if you disagree with me your logic and reason and opinion have no merit. I would answer with this: If we can kill unborn babies why not murderers? I'm not for anything being done "worldwide". I have no interest in being dictated to by any "world" organization. I'll keep my own country where the people have the voice, thank you very much.
