Alas, very small % of the population would say the same. Most would not care, others would say kill him/her. Nice that you are an optimist about an enlightened society, but I don't see it happening. Ever.
Also, I am not sure if I am against the DP (haha), but if you ask me, it's harder to live through the rest of your life in a prison then a swift death, so I guess I'd say that I am.
