There is a logical inconsistency at play here: Prohibiting abortion and supporting the death penalty. Life is life -- some innocent, some evil. As well, in re the death penalty it's durned expensive with lawsuits ad nauseum. Cheaper by far to let these folx rot in prison.

Nothing inconsistent with supporting the execution of a convicted criminal and being against the execution of innocent children.

The 5th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads, “No person shall be ... deprived of life ... without due process of law.” The equal application of this Bill of Rights would require a trial for both the criminal and the unborn in order to apply a death sentence to either.

By killing an unrepentant murderer and never having to worry about him getting out of prison and murdering again, and by sending a clear message to other would-be murderers that they will be dealt with in similar fashion, we are saving lives.

I don't care what your faux studies show, when the death penalty is "practiced", murder rates drop and crime rates drop. INNOCENT lives are saved.

But execution doesn't fit the Big Government narrative, so libs everywhere will find reasons to stop it. More murders, more crime, more legal bottlenecking are okay, as long as it preserves the narrative.

Kind of like the way liberals have destroyed the Black family. Let's not look at empirical data, let's not trust our gut instinct, instead let's preach some noble platitudes and keep a $30 trillion dollar bureaucracy in place. The less intelligent Liberals maintain that what is really important are intentions, not results.

But the ones who rule their roost know that what is important is maintaining the Big Government narrative, for therein lies power and wealth.
There happens in life those rare moments when you find yourself on center stage; A monumental question has been posed and everyone else in the room is listening, ready to capture that wedge of sage counsel from your personal wisdom.  If you are a senior, and the audience is your grandchildren, the introspection that you share could well affect their formative youth.
