It is argued that the death penalty violates many amendments not just the 14th. This below is the 14th ammendement: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." It is a well known and socially accepted idea that the death penalty is handed out in a biased and discriminatory manner depending on social class, wealth, race and gender. As a result this means when people are given the death sentence, it can be argued that they are denied ‘equal protection of the laws’, thus suggesting that the death penalty may in fact be in breach of the 14th amendment.
