As a mom, it sickens me to think anyone would hurt a child, but people do. A debate was waged, with even the presidential candidates weighing in as of late, on whether child rapists should be given the death penalty despite the Supreme Court's recent decision that it is unconstitutional. At the center of the controversy was Louisiana man, Patrick Kennedy who was sentenced to death for raping his 8-year-old stepdaughter in 1998; A crime so brutal that the girl had to undergo surgery.

What is your opinion?
