NO ONE , EVER has the right to taking the life of any other human being under ANY circumstance, EXCEPT in VERY SMALL instances of self-defence.

Have you read the news about the idiot right-wing religious lunatics in Poland, demanding capital punishment? They really are so f'ing stupid, that they bring up the notions of abortion and euthanisia into the equation. Typical idiot, retarded religious freaks with their black and white moral absolutism.
