I define murder as the wrongful taking of an innocent life. If you agree with my definition, please explain how the execution of this doctor was a murder.
If you could stop the murder of thousands and you did not, isn't your inaction immoral? Why would you not be culpable in some way?
I believe many of us here consider abortion to be murder, but we don't have the courage to act upon that belief.
We must also understand that vengeance and administration of justice are not the roles of private individuals. "Vengeance is Mine, and retribution, In due time their foot will slip; For the day of their calamity is near, And the impending things are hastening upon them." (Deuteronomy 32: 35, NASB). This point is also repeated in Romans 12 and Hebrews 10 in the New Testament. Civil government is authorized in certain instances to administer justice, as Romans 13 indicates. Jesus Christ Himself stated that there is a role for government in society, "render unto Caesar" in Matthew 22:21 and Mark 12:17.
