Is the death penalty cruel and unusual punishment? Ft. Marc Hyden

January 22, 2014

Is the death penalty a violation of the 8th amendment's rule against cruel and unusual punishment? A recent case in Ohio where a man took twenty minutes to die from an untested lethal injection cocktail is raising concerns amongst advocacy groups. 


One group calling themselves Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty is gathering support from many prominent conservatives and libertarians. The National Advocacy Coordinate for Conservatives Concerned joins the Freedom Report to argue why a consistent pro-life ethic is both morally superior and constitutionally ethical.
