Death is a heck of a deterrant to the repeat offenders of murders and other very serious crimes. What is the use of life sentences? Same thing, just quicker
Thatís what's called hypocrisy. An unborn child is just a fetus and is in no-way more valuable than a Human life. The death penalty is state-sponsored murder IMO. You can't make the point of saying murder is wrong by killing someone. That and it costs more than life in prison. Only other coutntries that have state-sponored murder are china, iran and ect and I don't want to be in that exclusive club.
Social programs are what make this country great and every 1st world country has social programs. It gives the poor tools to get on their feet make a life for themselves.
