The Case Against the Death Penalty — From the Right

Hanna Kozlowska of the New York Times described the politically Right side of the case against the death penalty that is rising up out of the spate of botched executions. She cites conservatives and libertarians who are working to educate people on the death penalty’s failures. She said, A modest but growing group of conservatives would agree with Mr. Gillespie. Conservative policies are supposed to be “pro-life, fiscally responsible and limited government,” Marc Hyden, of the advocacy group Conservatives Concerned About Death Penalty, told USA Today. “We risk taking innocent life, it costs more than life without parole, and I can’t think of a bigger government program than one where you can kill your citizens.”
