a: Capital Punishment ~
b: amputating a diseased limb

What:

"St Thomas Aquinas said that Capital Punishment is like amputating a diseased limb to protect the body. This was, and still is, the official teaching of the Catholic Church. The only thing that has changed is whether it is prudent to amputate the limb in a specific situation."
