IF you are Pro-Life... Please answer.

If you are Pro-Life are you Anti-Death Penalty? Why or Why Not?

If you are pro-life for biblical reasons are you pro-deathpenalty for the same reasons? The bible does condemn abortion yet condemns criminals to death... So what is your take if those are your reasons?

  • I can not choose a Best answer because all (well almost all) of these are great answers. I was looking for the opinions of individuals and not a bash fest, Thank you for not fighting!

    As for me, my reasons for my beliefs have NOTHING to do with the bible! But, I am pro-choice and Pro-Death Penalty.

    I don't agree with Abortion but know what happens when the choice is taken away. That's not my place.
    I do however feel that the death penalty is a JOKE! It should be speady! 5 years in prison at MOST! Give them one appeal. IF they are convicted twice, shot them! None of this dieing of old age on Death row crap! Why should I have to pay for them to be warm and fed everyday when there are innocent people starving and freezing? A bullet costs $.05 a rope is reusable. Get rid of them!

  • I am asking this because I see so many women that are pro-life due to biblical reasons... And most of those same women I talked to are also anti-dealth penalty... Yet, the bible condemns criminals to death all the time... So I'm just looking for opinions. Not an argument. If you want to be nasty, Go AwAy!

  • I am pro life, and pro death penalty. Although I think we need stricter rules on the death penalty....too many are put to death without undeniable proof.
