  • Only because they don't follow it

    Unfortunately the government doesn't seem to follow the eighth amendment, Which forbids things such as torture, So why even have an amendment forbidding it. It's just a waste of time and space to go over it and consider it a law. If it were actually being followed as it's supposed to be then no, It should not be repealed.

  • Delete the 8th

    The presence of the Eighth Amendment in the Irish Constitution is a source of discrimination against all women living in Ireland. It creates a discriminatory health system where a pregnant woman only has a qualified right to health care. International human rights organisations have repeatedly taken the state to task for its draconian abortion regime, observing that it violates women’s right to bodily integrity and self-determination.

  • Yes, because we are too lenient on crime.

    Let's face it: our enemies are getting bolder. I believe it is high time America gets bolder too. I know conditions in some countries are tough, but as a Christian I believe we have a duty to follow the law and if we can not do that then maybe we need a new constitution

  • Both lives need to be respected Mother & baby.

    Taking a life is wrong it is not natural. Animals get treated better than these aborted babies. How can you have more respect for one life over another. Abortion is not a simple solution that some are trying to portray. Bring in abortion and everything will be fine I don't think so. Taking life is wrong,wrong, wrong. Níl sé ceart.

  • Babies and mothers have a right to life.

    Taking a life is wrong its not natural. Animals get treated better than these infants that are aborted. Its not a simple solution like many want to portray it. Bring in abortion and everything will be fine. I don't think so. How can you have more respect for one life over the other. Both need to be cherished and other solutions found. Taking life is wrong, wrong, wrong. Níl sé ceart.

  • Don't Throw Out the Baby with the Bathwater

    While there are reasons to waive the Eighth Amendment in the case of someone like a terrorist suspect being captured, it is an awful idea to get rid of it across the board. Doing so would result in a drift to the far right regarding criminal justice, and would take away many of the rights that the accused presently have.

  • We are civil.

    No, the 8th Amendment should not be repealed, because it is a good thing that we do not have cruel and unusual punishments. I do not necessarily agree with how narrowly the Supreme Court has construed our right to be free from cruel and unusual punishments. However, not having physical punishments is a good thing.

  • It Should Be Upheld

    I believe there are parts of the Eight Amendment that the government itself has decided not to follow. This does not mean the amendment should be repealed, it means it needs to be upheld. Our government corruption should be addressed with such things as the Eight Amendment. We shouldn't just shrug our shoulders and decide to get rid of it.
