This vote made by the U.S. supports the persecution of the LGBTQ+ community and reflects homophobic beliefs. It is necessary to take actions that continue to protect underrepresented groups, and votes should not be made based on other policies when individualsâ€™ lives are at stake. The U.S. cannot proudly wave a rainbow flag when, according to our government, homosexuality qualifies for the death penalty.
The United States voted in opposition of the United Nationsâ€™ resolution on Sept. 29 condemning the death penalty as a punishment for same-sex relations. This decision to vote essentially in favor of the death penalty as a consequence for homosexual relations is detrimental for the U.S.â€™s progressionSource: U.N. vote contradicts established U.S. values by supporting death penalty for gay relationships
