Japan executes first foreigner in 10 years

Japan has executed its first foreigner in a decade on Thursday. A Chinese man convicted for the murder and robbery of a family of four, Wei Wei had been on death row for more than 16 years. Japan has 112 people on death row, including 84 seeking retrials. Japan has executed 39 people since Prime Minister Abe took office in 2012.

"Amnesty International said the hanging showed Japan’s 'shocking lack of respect for the right to life.'" In July 2018, Amnesty International members voted in favor of updating the organization’s abortion policy, pushing "not just to decriminalize abortion, but to guarantee access to safe and legal abortion in a broad way". So Amnesty international says we should respect cold blooded murderers' right to life, but not that of innocent babies.
