    How many Pro-life people out there also support the death penalty?!? You can’t have it both ways!

      Hey, brain dead. Killing scumbags like Tsarnaev and killing innocent babies is apples an oranges. Show some intelligence. Oh, sorry, I forgot. Intelligence and common sense are forbidden by the left.

      How many Pro-choice people out there also oppose the death penalty?!?

    For the most part, I oppose the death penalty. My main reason is that it is still possible to execute an innocent person. However, when there is no doubt as the to guilt or innocence of a suspect, then I have no problem with the death penalty. In cases like with scumbags like Timothy McVeigh and this guy Tsarnaev, there is no doubt. I believe the death penalty is justified.
