We are told that the death penalty (which we celebrate by conducting in total secrecy) is supposed to be a deterrent. We are also told that as prolife Christians, we are supposed to be opposed to assisted suicide.
So what do “prolife” death penalty advocates make of a case where the reason a man killed two people was in order to obtain the death penalty? Here, the death penalty was an incentive to kill, so that we could assist in the murderer’s chosen form of suicide.
Dear anti-abortion-but-not-prolife advocate. Be consistent. Stop striving to maximize the death toll for your preferred victims. Abolish abortion *and* the death penalty.
