Restoration of Death Penalty?
Earlier this year, Joseph Estrada, Mayor of the capital city of the Philippines proposed for the restoration of death penalty for heinous crimes. Estrada’s proposal was after the gruesome crime committed by a drug addict who raped and then killed a six-year old girl. Also, Senator Vicente Sotto III said that the life imprisonment meted to drug traffickers does not work because drug offenders can still resume operation while in prison. But the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) is reminding lawmakers that many prisoners are wrongfully convicted. Besides, human life is very precious and that the imposition of death penalty is unchristian and inhuman according to the CBCP. How about you guys? Are you “in favor” or “not in favor” for the restoration of death penalty for heinous crimes like rape, drug trafficking, kidnapping, murder, and plunder?
Not In Favor
