HOw cruel to make someone condemned to die,( probably for killing an innocent person) feel pain at his or her death. I wonder if the person they killed felt pain? iom pretty sure they didnt give their victims a cocktail to make sure they didnt feel pain. Maybe one of the 27 stab wounds caused pain, maybe the bullet in the chest caused pain before death. Maybe being beaten until dead was painful. But please do not let the murderers or other offenders suffer any pain, how inhumane.

Why would any person care? I would hope that guilty person would be executed by the same means that they killed their victim, no matter what.'nuff said.

Unreal! We should do away with the death penalty.
Along the same lines, no one cares what kind of pain an unborn baby feels when it is ripped from the mother's womb. The most brutal form of abortion, partial-birth abortion, is still being debated by those in favor of it even thought the Supreme Court upheld the ban recently. If you have ever read eye witness accounts of a partial birth abortion you would read how the babies hands are opening and closing and the feet are moving when the abortionist plunges the scissors into the base of its skull.
This country has it's priorities totally mixed up. It cares more about animals and convicts than it does the most vulnerable, the unborn.

Sick society..
Yeah you can't get rid of slime..like a molester or a rapist..they get to be free shortly again to do..what they know..

A woman can kill a baby...(which I have been only made aware of, a couple month back, I had no Idea).About partial birth abortion..that is just sick..the fact I didn't know and that it is done..

But we can't use a rodent..to maybe find a cure for something..

It's all too strange...

now i am going to say some things you might not like so you will just have to deal with it. i think they should shoot them once with the lethal injection, bring them back to life then shoot them again with it the no good bastards. how can you care if they feel pain. i guess you dont think bin laden should feel pain when he is captured ha.i hope are troops beat him from a inch of his life then drag him on the back of a truck with a short rope. now thats pain. all killers should be made to suffer pain for the victim and the family. i believe the family should choose the execution of choice. believe me you would not want me to be incharge.i would put them to death one after another until they were all gone.now thats the way i feel and sorry i am so bitter

well maybe you shoul adopt all the unwanted babys then you would not feel so bad about abortion. who are you to asy what a women can do with here body.beleve me abortion is good when these young women become pregnant.the baby is to suffer because most young women cant take care of a child the way it is supposed to be and ends up suffering. i blame the parents. they have these pills called birth control. use them and there wont be no need for abortion.

The baby is unwanted but, the pleasure and self gratification of the sex is OK. The only way to avoid pregnancy is to obstain from sex except within the context of marriage. If you did any investigation you would know that birth control is just another form of abortion. The "Pill" and the "Morning After Pill" are both abortafacients. And when the birth control, including condoms, fail to prevent pregnancy, the next step is the clinical abortion. In many cases the woman would choose to keep her baby but is forced and coerced into having an abortion by her sex partner, relatives, "friends", or employers.

Hotdogs, you have presented by far the best arguement for abortion; your mother should have had one, but maybe, you are the result of a botched abortion.

You still are a pitiful wretched wreck of a ignorant human being; enough to gag me this fine Saturday morning

Outside of RAPE, INCEST, or threatening the Mother's LIFE abortion is wrong.

Abortion's is now used as a form of Birth control.

another thing you need to go get some help with your look on life. you are the typical democratic want to change the world loser. it is people like you who leave a bad taste in peoples mouth. i bet your on welfare with 10 kids running around. birth control would be your best bet.but a person like you would rather have children to get a check each month. what kind a credibility do you think you deserve with a death row boyfriend. do you honestly think people take you seriously...you and that other moran on here need to go find something else to do...

YOU CAN THANK THE CHURCH FOR THAT. IT BECAUSE OF ALL THE BIBLE HUGGERS IS WHY WE CANT EXPLORE MORE MEDICAL ISSUES. IF IT WASNT FOR THE HOLY ROLLERS OUR MEDICAL FIELD WOULD BE 100 TIMES MORE ADVANCED. TINKA ITS THE MS SPARROWS AND ALL THE OTHER LIBERAL EXTREMIST ON HERE WHY THE WORLD IS THE WAY IT IS. THANK THEM.
