I think you'd find alot of survivors in prisons everywhere but for me when it comes to the death penalty it is beside the point. It is just wrong on so many levels, first and foremost that state sanctioned murder (even of sexual abusers) degrades everyone's human rights. If one is a believer in God there is also an argument to be made that the state does not have the right to take what it did not give us, which is life. Governments or states can give liberty and therefore has the right to take that away when need be but not someone's life. I believe that to be up to God alone.
