Questions with Sister Helen Prejean
For the questions and responses I would like to note that I have written them up in my own words.
Question: Is a life sentence with no parole more humane than the death penalty?
Answer: No, it is not humane in any way. Life in prison is a hard hard life. Yes we have to do what we have to do to stay safe. But it is not humane.
Question: Was Gender a barrier for you in your fight for Sonnier?
Answer: Not so much a gender thing more so that it wasn’t seen as appropriate. A feeling of walking on another persons turf with the men in the ministry.
Question: What has been your lowest point since the murder trials?
Answer: Not reaching out to LeBlancs family. (Since then Sister Helen Prejean has reached out to the families.)
