An innocent baby that has not even lives out side of the womb is much different than a killer. First off the baby is innocent and the killer is not. Second of all the killer is probably an audit who has lived his life while the baby has not even been out side the womb.
In the end these two subjects are totally different and do not any bearing on the other. Abortion, when done early, is not killing a living and developed person. The death penalty on the hand is,a type of punishment for some done wrong. An abortion is not a punishment it is medical procedure that is the choice of the individual that has become pregnant.
Terminating a pregnancy and executing a convicted murderer are two completely unrelated events. To someone who is very much against abortion, both may involve 'killing', yet there would still be radical difference between killing an innocent unborn child who has never harmed anyone, and a guilty adult who has committed the most heinous crimes possible. Thus there is no reason the two should morally or legally be connected.
Abortion rights should not be on the books so long as the death penalty is also allowed. These two things cannot be equated. One is about ending the life of a complete criminal and one is about ending the life of an innocent child. Abortion rights should be dealt with on their own, and adjusted according to possible health risks of mother and baby.
No, abortion rights should not be on the books so long as the death penalty is also allowed, because the people who are given the death penalty deserve it because they have done something terrible. Abortion is killing an innocent unborn child who has done nothing to deserve it. They are separate issues. One victim is culpable, and one is a true victim.
I personally think that the United States pro-life movement (also known as the United States anti-abortion movement or the United States right-to-life movement) is a social and political movement in the United States opposing on moral or sectarian grounds elective abortion and usually supporting its legal prohibition or restriction. The legal situation in the Muslim world also varies from country to country.
