There. That said, take a look at this:
Particularly, this quote: "At no point are we not going to value the sanctity of life," said prison spokesman Vernell Crittendon. "We would resuscitate him," then execute him.
This is in reference to Mr. Allen requesting to not be resuscitated were he to have another heart attack.
I see that the "then execute him" is not in quotes and was likely added by CNN for effect, however it's the same thing. They "value the sanctity of life" enough to resuscitate a dying man, rather than let him die of natural causes. They "value the sanctity of life" enough to kill him by their own hands.
I sometimes find myself asking where God is, and why He doesn't show himself in more obvious ways to the sick, sad lost people here.
