This paper reviews two arguments against the death penalty, Lethal Injection and Disparity in Justice Argument. Each raises a moral issue against the death penalty. The Lethal Injection argument argues that physician participation is essential to the execution process, but since physicians are morally barred from participating in executions, executions by lethal injections need to be abolished. The Disparity in Justice Argument proceeds from an economic stance and says that a disparity in the awarding of capital punishment exists between wealthy and poor counties. Since this is morally wrong, therefore, it says, capital punishment should be abolished in favor of a punishment that all counties irrespective of their finances can execute equally. This paper argues that while the former argument appears defensible, the latter fails to defend itself against objections raised in this paper.
