NJ Legislature: Death sentence is immoral (unless it's an embryo and there's potential for profit).

Today's Newark Star-Ledger has an article about the the New Jersey General Assembly's vote to abolish the death penalty in the Garden State.

"It is simply not for us to decide who should live and who should die," said Assembly Speaker Joseph Roberts (D-Camden).

If only they kept that thought in their heads when they voted for embryonic stem cell research.

Yes, unborn life needs to be protected, no doubt about it. But let us all rejoice in the repeal of the death penalty in NJ, at least. This is no small thing. Respect shown for life in any quarter is a step toward greater respect for life elsewhere, in all situations and at all stages of development.
