The Democrats in New York have vehemently opposed Capital Punishment, even for multiple murderers like Lemuel Smith who murdered an elderly couple who ran a religious artifact store just before Christmas, and a single woman in a shopping center. He was convicted when his teeth marks matched bite marks on her breast.
He was later convicted of killing a prison guard, Donna Payant, when his teeth marks appeared on her body in a dumpster.
But they just as vehemently support tearing a fetus to pieces, even when they are fully developed babies. Vicious murders must be protected but not innocent babies.
