The death penalty deals with executing criminals who have been convicted of seriously heinous crimes and tend to cost a great deal. One execution is probably worth 100 abortions (I'm just saying that, might be even more). Money aside, the justice system in this country is corrupt and even if it wasn't it doesn't get the right guy every time. Similar to Gitmo where you're torturing innocent guys just for being Muslim or middle eastern and have no ties to terrorism or even crime, do you really want to kill a person who may have ended up being innocent of the crime that lands them on death row?
Capitol punishment is an absolute final act based off of what's proven in a court of law that can not be reversed. Abortion is a final act that is the choice of the female that is only based on the female deciding to have it done. You gotta see the distinction here.
You gotta think about the implications man. That's how it makes sense. It's far more serious than the implications involving abortion.
If you could tell me there was a guarantee it wouldn't cost a lot and that every person on death row was guilty, I'd be all for capitol punishment.
