  • Some criminals are JUST NOT able to be rehabilitated and SHOULD be put to death,. Especially the criminally insane people who are ""crazy" that kill people. The tax payers would save millions.

  • The death penalty is suicide by criminal court. People CHOOSE to take their own life by committing acts they know are punishable by death. A baby doesn't choose to die.

  • Pro-choice and anti death penalty. It isnt ok to kill anyone, including people you think not worth living. I prefer criminals to be punished for their crimes rather than released by death. Life in prison is worse.

  • I was thinking of this earlier. We spend millions on keeping the nasties alive and some of them get better living conditions then people who DESERVE it. Being Canadian I can think of at lease three that I think should get the death penalty, Robert Picton, Clifford Olson and Paul Bernando. They're a waste of skin! I don't believe in abortion, but do believe that it's a woman's body, her choice. If I had a friend who was pregnant and considering it, I'd try to talk her out of it, but in the end I'd support it.

  • I'm pro-choice politically. Personally, I'm against abortion FOR MYSELF under most any circumstance I can think of (except maybe if my life were in immediate danger by being pregnant but maybe not even then--I'd rather prevent it if I knew it was dangerous for me). I don't think the government or any of us should make that decision for someone else whatever my personal opinion is. I want it to be a legal, safe choice for women, but make sure they have access to education, prevention, and other choices like adoption in hopes of reducing the number of abortions.

    I'm generally against the death penalty, because it violates a basic human right, murder is ALWAYS wrong, even if the state does it, the risk of receiving the death penalty does NOT actually deter crime, life in prison costs less (due to appeals, counsel, etc), and the biggest reason IMO is that the risk of ONE innocent person being wrongly put to death is too high.

  • One is given a choice, committ a capital offense or don't. If you do then then you face the death penalty. Babies have no choice.
