I've heard a lot of people say that they think rape is worse than murder. I'm not sure where I stand on this, but I have a few opinions that sway me either way.
1. You can have a good reason to kill someone, like they are trying to kill you, although this may not count a murder, since it was out of self defense.
2. There is never a good reason to rape someone.
3. After a rape, the victim is never fully healed. Rape victims often have flashbacks, memories long after the rape happened. They never can live their lives the same again, they are never the same person again.
I have some more, but I'd like to hear what others have to say.
Murder could be considered worse because once the person is dead, they are never coming back, but at least they don't suffer through life.
