On the death penalty

“It is impossible to imagine that states today cannot make use of another means than capital punishment to defend peoples’ lives from an unjust aggressor.”
Pope Francis 

“…I draw the attention of society’s leaders to the need to make every effort to eliminate the death penalty and to reform the penal system…”
Pope Benedict XVI

“I renew the appeal…to end the death penalty, which is both cruel and unnecessary.”
Pope John Paul II
