Roe v. Wade and the Death Penalty

Here's the question:
Are you willing to give up the Death Penalty in America as a trade off for losing Roe v. Wade?
Just a thought.

What if a candidate said, he or she promised to end abortion in America in exchange for ending the death penalty? Would you be for that or against that?

Of course I'd give it up in a heart beat. Besides, life in prison with exposure to beatings and gang rape might be worse for those murders anyway.

So, is this a trick question? Your Fred promising this, or something?

If a president could get the Supreme Court to back him up on that (that's the real question), I would be willing to support that. Though I am a proponent of the death penalty for heinous crimes, premeditated or not, I know that death penalty cases tie up our courts with delays, reviews, stays, etc. I don't think a presidential candidate will ever come out publicly with that platform. The issues are too polarizing and cause for more introspection than most are willing to agree to in a campaign.

I haven't heard a candidate address this issue, I came up with it all on my lonesome!

I just wondered what the average person thought of this compromise.

I agree mick, no one would touch that with a ten foot pole.

On another note, Pastor Huckabee preached sunday at a Baptist church.
Now I don't have a problem with that, but I do know that when Bill Clinton did it when he was campaigning, years ago, Republicans cried foul that it was not right.
So I wonder about his motives there?
