Upon signing the Schiavo Law, President Bush declared:

"It Is Wisest to Always Err on the Side of Life" 

Bush has been criticized for overseeing the execution of 152 convicted criminals while governor, more than any other governor in the history of the United States. Texas's penal system allows the governor to grant a single 30-day reprieve for each offense -- which then Governor Bush did for but one death row inmate.

Since that time, much of the nation's capital punishment system has come under increased scrutiny for being unfairly and unequally applied, as well as being riddled with procedural errors.

So much for "erring on the side of life."
