Harvard School of Public Health analysts probe the importance of the Supreme Court ruling upholding national health care, and explain the law’s next challenge: the November election
Carol Steiker and Lloyd Barnett were two of the six experts speaking on “The Death Penalty: Hanging by a Thread,” part of a two-day international conference on the death penalty at Harvard Law School. Steiker said the death penalty is in decline in the U.S. but questions whether a Supreme Court decision banning the death penalty would be desirable. It is better, perhaps, to simply let such laws be “hollowed out,” state by state, she said.
