anti-death penalty jurrors

Should prosecutors be able to exclude people that oppose the death penalty for moral reasons from juries that may have to consider a request to execute the defendent?

The law seems to say that society's decision that the death penalty is OK trumps the individual's opposition, even though opposing the death penalty isn't particularly rare.

When should individual morality be able to trump society's legislative process? See Archpundit for a thoughts on the manufactured controversy about pharmacists refusing to provide physician prescribed medications.
