Yesterday in a 7-2 decision, the US Supreme Court upheld KY’s death penalty protocol as not cruel and unusual punishment, effectively lifting a 7-month nationwide moratorium on capital punishment while states awaited the verdict….

The protocol involves a 3-drug cocktail, given by injection into a vein, in order:

  • sodium pentothal, an anesthetic that makes one unconscious
  • pancuronium bromide, a paralytic
  • potassium chloride, which causes cardiac arrest, i.e., death
    Contested was the 2nd drug, which death penalty opponents said might leave a dying convict in pain but unable to let anyone know.
    The Bible condones the death penalty for 2 reasons, to deter others from committing heinous crimes, but moreso to rid society of the most evil among us.
    This spotlights the sanctity of life: It is so precious, those taking innocent human life should be meted the ultimate punishment.
    Fellow pro-lifers disagree, and that’s fine.
    But it’s not fine for pro-aborts and pro-euthanasiasts to disagree.
    It’s the height of hypocrisy to feign righteousness about putting convicted murderers to death, wringing hands about pain they might endure along the way, while meanwhile supporting suctioning or tearing preborns limb from limb or dehydrating and starving disabled people to death.
    No surprise that rabidly pro-abort Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and David Souter dissented out of concern for convicted murderers’ comfort.
    lethal injection.gifThe surprise came in near 88-year-old Justice John Paul Stevens, who reversed himself. In 1976, he helped write the majority opinion upholding the death penalty as constitutional. Now, he wrote in his opinion yesterday, he believes it violates the 8th Amendment.
    Still Stevens voted with the majority, which would be considered strange and even indefensible did we not know he was hearing Roe v. Wade whisper “stare decisis” in his ear, what liberals are solely banking on now to prop legalized abortion should the day ever come to reexamine what intelligencias on both sides all agree was an abysmal decision.
