Under certain circumstances, please explain
I support a woman's right to choose. I do not like the idea of abortion, I wish there were no abortions, but it is not my decision to make. Killing is bad, killing is wrong, but you can only kill something if it is alive. No one has been able to sufficiently explain to me when life begins so I don't know which is why I stay out of that thread, because I do not know. If you can talk me into that thread we'll discuss. This is a DP thread.
"You know, when they came and took away my fourth amendment I kept my yap shut, what the hell, I really didn’t have anything to hide anyway. When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, I’m allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and I’ve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I don’t, before you know it, you won’t let me say nothing at all"
--Randolph J. Dworkin
“Reading makes a full man, meditation a profound man, discourse a clear man.”

"It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world"

Here's the link to remind you what I said then.

Now... what exactly does this have to do with the U.S. legal system?
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
I'm a firm believer that execution is the easy way out. Make this person sit in a jail cell for the rest of his life with the fear of being raped and shanked whenever he turns his back. What is harsher punishment? A 100 year sentence or execution? I think a 100 year sentence sitting in a 5 x 5 cell works better.
You would be surprised how little time some murders serve these days. I have a friend who went to prison for 2 years for getting 5 DUI's within 1 month. He told me there were murders serving 5-8 year sentences. Yes, murders who not only kill the victim, but the family as well, walk free within 5 years. They are labeled as felons for the rest of their days but do these people really contribute to society anyways?
