Abstract

This project will examine the evolution of the death penalty throughout history and discuss the legal and moral implications of this thought-provoking topic. The death penalty can be traced back to the beginning of written history and still exists today. While much can be written on this topic, this project will generally trace the history of the death penalty and specifically address discrepancies that exist in our world today regarding capital punishment, and suggested improvements to be implemented through legislation in the United States. In addition, any discussion of the death penalty must include the ethical and moral issues presented by the termination of human life. This subject has historically been a widely debated political topic in the United States with strong opinions from both sides. On the one hand, there have been and continue to be efforts to banish the death penalty. On the other, there are many victim rights and other groups strongly advocating for its continuation. Another critical consideration regarding this issue involves inmates’ life on “death row” and the impact on their families. Ultimately, a primary goal of this is to attempt to find a solution to a pressing issue in our world today while carefully weighing both sides, and reaching a conclusion that may be supported by a majority of Americans.
