Abortion and Capital Punishment Viewed Differently In Catholic Circles

It seems that even though it is very clear one still has to make this known to people. This is not to say there not not important issues regarding Captial Punishiment we must deal with. Still one is viewed as a intrinic evil and one is not.

American Catholic has Abortion, Capital Punishment and War – One of these things is not like the other …

It is the official position of the Church that while the death penalty is a legitimate use of the state's power, it should still avoid using that particular power ... especially in this culture of death in which it might scandalize others.

Obviously, abortion is intrinsically evil, but I just wanted to make that point. :)
