Why I'm pro-life and for the death penalty

Why I am pro-life and support the death penalty

Well, since you asked.
(and no, I did not make the Condescending Wonka. Found it online)

For why I am proudly pro-life, you can read this, basically an answer to every pro-choice argument. I won’t waste my time.

This is Juan Chavez. On September 11, 1995, Chavez abducted 9 year old Jimmy Ryce on his way home from school. At gunpoint, he took Jimmy back to his trailer where he raped and shot him. Chavez dismembered Jimmy’s body with a bush hook and hid it in three plastic containers of concrete. Three months later Jimmy’s body was found. Chavez was executed nearly painlessly by lethal injection February 12, 2014, after receiving a nice meal of steak and fruit.

This is a little baby. His heart was beating 24 days after conception. At week 9 he can yawn. His toenails began appearing at week 10. He is alive and breathing. He is innocent. He has not hurt anyone, he has not murdered anyone. If his mother chooses to abort him, this is what will happen to him. I will not be linking pictures due to extreme graphic content.

Here is a cute little baby. He cannot help if his father is a rapist. It is not his fault. He did nothing.

Jason Hann murdered his infant daughter and stored her body with duct tape, trash bags, and in a tupperware-like container. He also murdered a 2 month old boy in a similar manner. Hann received the death penalty.

Michael Bargo was 18 when he beat and shot a 15 year old. He burned his body in a fire pit. Bargo received the death penalty and is one of the youngest people on death row.

The Orlando Sentinel wrote:

Jackson’s remains – ashes and bone fragments – were then dumped in 5-gallon paint buckets and hidden, according to Marion County Sheriff’s Office records.

The killing was a brutal one. Jackson was lured by his girlfriend to a home in the Marion County community of Summerfield, where Bargo and two other attackers began hitting him with pieces of wood. Bargo shot him several times with a .22-caliber revolver, but Jackson managed to make an escape attempt, and he was tackled and shot again.
The killers placed his body in a bathtub, intending to break his knees so he would better fit into a bag only to discover that he was still alive, so Bargo shot him again.
Jackson’s body was then burned in a backyard fire pit, and the killers used a shovel to scoop up his remains and place them into paint buckets.

The article also notes another young man on death row; David Sparre, 22, killed 21-year-old Navy wife Tiara Pool, whom he met through a personal ad on Craigslist. After having sex with her in 2010, the then-19-year-old stabbed the woman to death.

Gordon Northcott, perpetrator of the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders in the 1920s. Serial abductor, rapist, and murderer. Known for abducting, raping, murdering, and dismembering a number of boys. Subsequently, this 23 year old was hung.

Why do I call myself pro-life, yet believe in the death penalty?

Because there is a difference between the innocent and the guilty.

What is the death penalty for? Someone who has murdered another human living.

I don’t love the death penalty, I don’t believe in parading and celebrating the murderers death, and I don’t believe everyone who murders should get the death penalty. In cases like the ones mentioned above where the murder was particularly heinous and the perpetrator quite obvious, or in cases of serial rapists and murderers, yes, I do support the death penalty whole-heartedly, for the simple reason I believe in justice, specifically for the victim. I think a lot of people often forget about the victim, and instead in cases like the Sandy Hook shootings, the murderer’s face is plastered everywhere.

I also value my safety; I don’t want a murderer and serial rapist on the loose, and the only alternative is him locked up in a taxpayer-funded prison forever. I know a lot of people are saying, “Every life is precious” and I agree. But, if an armed rapist came into your house and you had a gun, wouldn’t you protect your family?

The chances of serial murderers changing is very slim, and I really don’t want to put other people in danger while we’re still deciding if this serial rapist is likely to rape another woman. Shouldn’t victims have some justice? If someone chooses to rape, murder and dismember a person – why are we thinking more about the guilty one than the victim?

Cause of death

Murderers, rapists, – they’re all lethal injected painlessly. During an abortion, babies have their necks snapped and their spinal cords severed. That sickens me. The fact the babies are innocent and the murderers and rapists AREN’T just sickens me.

Choices

As sick as it makes me to write this, it was Chavez’s choice to abduct, rape and murder a 9 year old.

It was Hann’s choice to throw an infant against the wall and kill her, and then stuff her body in a container.

Also, Megan Huntsman, the Utah mom who killed her infants and put them in boxes in the garage – totally her choice. If she would have had an abortion – everyone would have been totally fine with it. She murders the baby afterwards and it’s a heinous crime. I don’t get that.

Just because you have the choice doesn’t make it right! And, abortion isn’t about the woman’s body, so it rightfully really isn’t her choice!

Well, abortion is legal and murder and rape is not.
Martin Luther King Jr. reminds us everything Hitler did was legal, too. Just because something is legal doesn’t make it right or wrong.

OK…now I have a question for you pro-choice people.

If you’re pro-CHOICE, why can’t I choose to pray publicly, watch Fox news, drink soda, smoke, use my own light bulbs, homeschool, or keep all that I earn?
If you are for women’s rights, why aren’t you protesting for women who actually need rights, like in most, if not all, Islamic countries?
Why are you fighting for abortion and free birth control, and failing to realize there are women who must have four witnesses to prove rape?
Why aren’t you more worried about them?

And that, my friends, is why I am pro-life and for the death penalty.

  1. Kudos to you! This is the best thing I’ve read all week. You are a brave, smart, outspoken young woman and we need more like you! Keep fighting the good fight!

  2. Gosh yes!!! People who can’t make the distinction between guilty and innocent scare the daylights out of me! Well said.
    (I got here from the link you posted on The Matt Walsh Blogs facebook page.)

  3. Having also been raised in a Christian family, I am fully aware that a fundamental part of the Christian faith is that God forgives all sins, provided you repent. In fact, Jesus said in the New Testament that loving one’s neighbour is the greatest commandment of all, and that forgiveness and repentance is vital to a loving relationship with God. With this is mind, I find your argument that we, as human beings, should end the life of a criminal, as opposed to offering them redemption and forgiveness to be highly contradictory to values taught by the religion you identify with.
    On a different note, I believe that your article over-romanticises exactly what a foetus is; until somewhere between the 24th and 28th week, a fetus does not possess consciousness. It is consciousness that allows us to process information from which we can learn and it is consciousness that allows our experiences to develop our personalities. Without consciousness, a foetus is a shell, albeit an intricately designed one. Your description of a foetus as being “innocent” is correct, only because until 7 months, a foetus is physically unable to do anything that isn’t an involuntary action (i.e. yawning). Bringing a child into the world is a serious matter, and I believe it is far crueler to give birth to a child who is unwanted and who cannot be promised a stable and happy start to life than it is to end the development of a foetus.
    Whilst I do not agree with you, I do respect your views and commend you on producing a very articulate piece of writing.

    Excellent ending to your post! I’d just like to answer the last question from my mainly pro-life standpoint about ,”Why are you fighting for abortion and free birth control, and failing to realize there are women who must have four witnesses to prove rape?
    Why aren’t you more worried about them?”
    It’s not that those people in these organizations fighting for those kind of things aren’t worried about those women . In fact, many feminist and anti-feminist groups and other woman’s organizations are trying to help women overseas that must have four witnesses to prove rape and have no rights. I know women overseas have those struggles. I have a friend that grew up in Saudi Arabia and the religious police would try to run her and her mom down if they forgot to wear the Islam head garments. My friend and her mom couldn’t drive off the U.S. compound (the dad worked on an oil refinery there)or they could be arrested for just being a women driving. My friend now that she’s back to the USA can finally get a driver’s license at last.She couldn’t in Saudi. I know for a fact there are organizations trying to make changes for the best for women overseas,but it isn’t as heard about here because the problem’s those women face aren’t directly affecting us. We’re also working on our problems. Just because women are fighting for rights that affect us doesn’t mean we don’t feel for those of others overseas.Technically your logic is saying that, so if an organization’s mission is to stop sex trafficking in New York City and get therapy to help those victims since we’re dealing with women from New York, we must not feel for women caught up in the sex trafficking trade in California or elsewhere.” “Or we’re raising money to build a homeless shelter in New Jersey to help the homeless,but since we’re not putting it in the Middle East,we must not care about those poor people.” Sorry,but that’s how that sort of logic can be interpreted. Still, some good points you’ve got there.
    I’m sure you’d be relieved to know that most abortions don’t involve,” babies haveing their necks snapped and their spinal cords severed.” That sounds more like a late term abortion to me. Did you know that 89% of abortions happen within the 1st trimester (0-3 months) and 50% of ALL abortions happen by drug,the drug can only be used pretty early on,like in the first month or so and I don’t think much over if over that, NOT that I’m saying that it’s okay. Don’t get me wrong,but honestly, pro-life groups tend to hype it up and make it sound like every baby get butchered as violently as in late-term abortions,which simply isn’t true. As I said before, 50% of abortions happen early on with the drug. I just thought you’d be comforted to know that it isn’t as bad as hyped up to be to play on people’s emotions because abortion is a SAD subject!
    Honestly,how far along is that baby up on the top with the words,”This is a little baby. His heart was beating 24 days after conception. At week 9 he can yawn. His toenails began appearing at week 10. He is alive and breathing. He is innocent. He has not hurt anyone, he has not murdered anyone. If his mother chooses to abort him, this is what will happen to him. I will not be linking pictures due to extreme graphic content.” That baby I can tell for a fact that he is not 24 days old or even 9 weeks. This is what an embryo looks like at one month gestation: https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQz6ANDIcB4cjwQcunyHkI40pDE9Ew5DOijtFzgR1_6xvfUuWpn

    It’s really sad women have late term abortions.I am pro-life but I DO believe in abortions in the case of rape and let me emphasize WHEN IT MAY BE TERMINAL TO THE MOTHER’S LIFE,like in ectopic pregnancy. I think many pro-life groups are hypocrites and contradict themselves when they say,”everybody has a right to life” but then the extremists go and try to deny her it and make it illegal for a woman seeking an abortion to save her own life. Like,doesn’t the woman have a RIGHT to LIFE like the embryo that the pro-lifers fight for, because they believe the baby/embryo depending on how far the woman is pregnant, has a right to life? It’s sad enough when a woman miscarries or delivers a still-born, but it’s nothing compared to losing your own mother,like to say your mom was pregnant and the pregnancy killed her,or a child/friend that you grew up with. Like I know a family whose eldest son who is a few years older than me,die from cancer die at 16. Now that’s tragic.
    I enjoyed your post and you brought up some excellent points.You seem to have a lot of inspiration.
