Nope, Owen, You're Right On

Owen posted about this article, which laments a criminal's 34 minute ordeal during lethal injection. No love lost, is Owen's point.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Defense attorneys and death penalty opponents were outraged Thursday over an execution in which the condemned man took more than half an hour to die, needed a rare second dose of lethal chemicals, and appeared to grimace in his final moments.

"I am definitely appalled at what happened. I have no doubt he suffered unduly," Angel Nieves Diaz's attorney, Suzanne Myers Keffer, said after Diaz died by injection.
What I want to know is this.

Where is the outrage when a baby is yanked from the womb prematurely, cracked in the back of the head, and has its brains sucked out? Isn't that suffering unduly? And what if it doesn't work the first time? Does anybody wonder if those babies grimace in their final moments?

Both feel pain. Only one has committed a crime.

You refer to a very rare abortion procedure that is utilized in situations where a mother has made an agonizing decision to terminate a (sometimes terminally) deformed fetus, or even risk her own life to deliver it. Such women do not merit our scorn.

The guy we killed? No love lost, maybe. But I do wonder at these supposedly humane execution procedures. Who the heck thought these things up? I do have pity for these people, even if their lives are forfeit due to their crimes.

It doesn't matter the circumstances. They both endured needless suffering. To defend partial-birth abortion because it's "very rare" is an abomination to one's humanity.

I am really tired of this argument that a mother can be too at-risk to deliver a child. We have another procedure for safe delivery and it's called cesarean section. This cannot be argued: the baby is nearly out of the mother's body except for the head. It's out. Mom won't die in those last three seconds it takes to bring the baby out of the body. It's a false, flimsy argument. And yes, they and the doctors do merit our scorn.

I don't like the death penalty in theory because the criminal is not punished. But if they suffer a bit? Come on. Nobody is crying any tears for the victims.

"Diaz, 55, was executed Wednesday for the 1979 murder of the manager of a Miami topless bar."

Ya know, even if you forget about the killing of partial birth or any other abortion, does anyone care about the last look on the face of the guy he KILLED???

..just sayin'.

1979??? The taxpayers have been feeding, clothing, and housing a convicted murderer for 25 years, and someone is worried about HIS pain? Big whoop!
