Countries With Death Penalty

Capital punished, called the death penalty, is when a person convicted of a crime is sentenced to death. This is highly controversial as it is seen as murder by opponents and the unjustified killing of another. However, proponents of the death penalty take an “eye for an eye” approach, where those who are sentenced to death have committed a crime heinous enough to justify removing them from society.

As of 2022, 108 countries have abolished the death penalty through law and an additional thirty-six countries have stopped using the death penalty, though it is still legal. Even in countries that still use the death penalty, some limit the use of the death penalty to only extreme crimes (such as murder and rape).
