“Indeed, nowadays the death penalty is unacceptable, however grave the crime of the convicted person. It is an offense to the inviolability of life and to the dignity of the human person; it likewise contradicts God’s plan for individuals and society, and his merciful justice ... It does not render justice to victims, but instead fosters vengeance.” – Pope Francis, 21 June 2016
