The Death Penalty

The Today Show was all aflutter this mornin re the death penalty recommendation for Scott Peterson. I've got political issues with the way the case has played out - I believe pregnant women are people whose deaths deserve justice. I do not believe in charging people with the murder of "unborn children." To me, that's the first step towards making abortion illegal.

At any rate, it's difficult for me to form an opinion on the sentence. I am opposed to the death penalty for moral reasons: I do not believe human beings have the right to kill other human beings, period. On the other hand, I have no sympathy for Peterson. I think he's guilty as sin. It's difficult for me to consider going into full activist mode for a convicted killer. Know what I mean?
