Is there exist anything like humane execution?Capital punishment, or the death penalty, is a controversial punishment for heinous crimes in several countries, and execution is the act of carrying out the death penalty sentence. From time to time, there have been reviews in developed countries to find a more humane method of execution.
There were much crueler methods of execution practiced worldwide in the middle age. However, hanging was one of the most prevalent methods of execution in the nineteenth century. The other method of execution was the use of a firing squad. However, it was replaced by electrocution, which was considered a humane method at that time. Later, execution by use of lethal gas was adopted, claiming it to be a more humane method of execution. However, presently, lethal injections are being used for execution in countries like the US, China, and a few other countries. as an even more painless and humane method.
Many people believe that, ethically, it is always inhuman to practice capital punishment, irrespective of the method adopted for execution. Perhaps, there is no justification for the death penalty. There are no so-called humane and painless methods of execution.
