Project #46440 - Short Assignment

Please produce about 250-350 word work (about one page long) arguing against the argument below that supports the death penalty.

Your work may be presented in the ordinary text format or in a bullet point format.

Please appeal primarily to Kant’s or/and Utilitarian claims to support your points.

Please argue against the death penalty argument regardless of what you really think about the death penalty (please do not offer any support for the death penalty).

The aim of this assignment is to practice how to use Kant’s and Utilitarian principles. If you argue against the argument below (which supports the death penalty) without any appeal to Kant’s and Utilitarian principles, you will not get a full credit for your work.

Do not write any introduction. Write straight to the point.

Your work should not be longer than 1 page (double spaced)

Pro Death Penalty Argument (Retentionist Argument):

Premise 1) If we keep the death penalty, we run the risk of needlessly eradicating the lives of convicted murderers who might have been reformable (correctable).

Premise 2) If we abolish the death penalty we run the risk of some innocent people becoming future victims of the murderers (for example, the prison guards).

Premise 3) Whether we choose to keep the death penalty or abolish it, there is a risk that some human lives will be needlessly lost.

Premise 4) We have no right to risk (endanger) lives of the innocent people.

Conclusion 5) Therefore, it is our moral obligation to retain (keep) the death penalty.

TIP: Premise 1) makes a point that is in favor to abolish death penalty. No need to debate this point for it serves your assignment.
