While it is a popular fallacy that the death penalty is only applied to the most serious crimes, such as aggravated murder, felony murder, and contract killing, the truth is that a very wide range of crimes are punishable by death. Contrary to popular belief, the death penalty is not only applied to the most serious crimes.

If there is a sincere commitment to the sanctity of human life, then it is possible that this kind of punishment should be required rather than prohibited. In the event that such an effect can be demonstrated, capital punishment entails a swap of one life for another.
