On the one hand, this is a step-forward to diminishing killing girls who have lost their virginity, whether forcibly or through consent. On the other hand, it’s a bit late. I’m also somewhat against having man deciding when another is to die. I don’t believe death sentences are the answer to abolishing and deterring crime in society.
