Capital Punishment - Buddhism

For

Against

Buddhists support its use if it is the law of the land

CP is regarded as part of the karmic consequences for a murderer

Keeping law and order is seen as more important than Buddha’s teaching

Belief by politicians that CP is necessary for retribution or deterrence value

All killing is wrong - it goes against teaching of 8 fold path

CP can hardly be called compassionate

Karmic consequences will stay with a person into next life – karma sees that justice is done

CP creates more bad karma
