Human Beings Are Not Disposable

Comment: Good points. I am adding one more: Find the text of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (Adopted by the UN in 1966 and ratified by most western countries by 1977). Then, read Article 6, which, among other things, states:
“5. Sentence of death shall not be imposed for crimes committed by persons below eighteen years of age and shall not be carried out on pregnant women.”
Then, think why. Still in force.
