Time For Us To Axe The Death Penalty

I was reading on NPR this morning that the Death Penalty is in decline, both in the number of people who support it and in the number of people actually being sentenced and executed.  I think that's fantastic news and it made me want to sit down and organize my thoughts on the Death Penalty.  Exploring The Death Penalty Against My Moral Foundation As a secular humanist, I believe that every human has inherent worth and intrinsic dignity. Taking the life of another human can only be justified, in my view, when that act would somehow increase human happiness.
