  • Ooohhh...I'm guessing the OP is a little sick of hearing "how can you support the death penalty if you're "pro-life"" I'm sick of hearing it too...people raped and murdered to get themselves put on death row and are more than aware that the death penalty exists when they do it. Babies are a result of what people have done and apparently have less rights in this world than violent criminals. A little backward isn't it?

  • because the believe that the embryo inside the woman is not a human, whereas the one facing death penalty is.

  • For me personally, it has to do with intent and accountability. I know it seems counter-intuitive, but it's really not, depending upon one's arguments for their opinions.

  • no apr1l thats not it, i dont think anyone doesnt think of the embryo as 'non human' but i think its more of, its a woman's choice what to do with her own body and life and morals, whereas the person facing the death penalty doesnt have a choice. i dont really know im speculating

  • It's easier to kill a baby by saying that it's not really a baby yet, than to kill a criminal that you have to look in the face even if he murdered, raped and destroyed everything innocent and beautiful in peoples lives.
