We are against abortion--the murder of the innocent unborn children in the womb but in favor of death penalty only for or to heinous criminals. (?) We have to pray for them to change their lives.

Pasay Regional Trial Court Executive Judge Pedro Corales backed the restoration of the death penalty during a rights-dialogue forum in Davao City held in 2005 (http://ccadp.proboards.com/index.cgi?board-news&action=display&thread=3107 ) of the Canadian Coalition Against the Death Penalty (PDI 12/24/2011).

"Imprisonment is expensive for the state, so the best way to deter criminality is to execute those with death sentences... If you don't execute how long should the state provide and spend for their existence and how sure are we that he (heinous criminal(s)) would not kill anybody anymore."

DEATH PENALTY?

"TO PRACTICE JUSTICE IS A JOY FOR THE JUST, BUT TERROR FOR EVILDOERS." -- Proverbs 21:15. "HE LOVES JUSTICE AND RIGHT; OF THE KINDNESS OF THE LORD THE EARTH IS FULL." -- Psalms 33:5

Other than that, pestiferous and heinous crimes committed by the government officials such as treason, corruptions and scams against the people should be put to death penalty as a matter of justice, not for the sake of death, not for the sake of killing, but for the sake of eliminating pestiferous elements in the government and in our society.

For the sake of justice, I am in favor of the restoration of death penalty in the Philippines upon the heinous criminals and particularly to those government officials who have committed heinous crimes against the Filipino people like graft and corruption and electoral sabotage, among other heinous crimes.

Even in the "THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH", alluding specifically to the 5th Commandment, "You shall not kill" (Exodus 20:13; Deuteronomy 5:17) No. 2266: Preserving the common good of society requires rendering the aggressor unable to inflict harm. For this reason the traditional teaching of the Church has acknowledged as well-founded the right and duty of legitimate public authority to punish malefactors by means of penalties commensurate with the gravity of the crime, not excluding, in cases of extreme gravity, "the death penalty". For analogous reasons those holding authority have the right to repel by armed force aggressors against the community in their charge.

The primary effect of punishment is to redress the disorder caused by the offense. When his punishment is voluntarily accepted by the offender, it takes on the value of expiration. Moreover, punishment has the effect of preserving public order and the safety of persons. Finally punishment has a medical value; as far as possible it should contribute to the correction of the offender. (Luke 23:40-43).
