One option involves killing a clump of cells, and the other option involves killing a Human being that has committed (almost always) an awful crime that has greatly negatively effected other people. I don't see how you can compare the two.

@Stalin_Mario, that is why I made this poll.

"Additionally, just because most people think that they are not contradicting, which isn't even proven by the poll, because no one until now has said anything about them being contradicting, nor is there a "they are not contradicting" option that is doing the best" Quote from black-jesus in another poll.

Supporting the death penalty but opposing abortion only makes sense if you think that jurors are all knowing and never make mistakes.

"Supporting the death penalty but opposing abortion only makes sense if you think that jurors are all knowing and never make mistakes." Can you clarify.

@Mathgeekjoe deeply amuses me with his spiteful behavior and willingness to deliberately misrepresent his opponents. Such as his quote from me which is unfinished, because I went on in the same sentence to say that even if most people didn't think that these two belief systems were contradictory it wouldn't mean a thing, citing the formerly commonplace belief that the Earth is flat. He also ignored the fact that I never said that these belief systems, in their totality, are contradictory, but I said that when they are reduced to simple proverbs like, "all life is sacred" that is when they become hypocritical, because things like the "all life is sacred" argument is hogwash when is used by someone who supports the death penalty.

@black-jesus, I merely decided to make a poll because of your quote. What you meant by it is irrelevant to this poll. You made the comment that your poll does not prove that people do not find it contradicting, I merely made this poll to prove what your poll couldn't.

If you don't kill the killer he will take more lives. That is a very pro life scenario.
