Death Penalty Statement (2001)
“The Leadership and Justice Contacts of the Conference of Presentation Sisters believe that the death penalty is immoral and should be abolished. We support a consistent ethic of life, believing that all life is sacred from the moment it begins until its natural death. The death penalty promotes the idea that the life of the condemned is no longer sacred. We believe that those of us who are guilty of the most heinous crimes are still sacred in the eyes of God. We believe that all persons are redeemable and loved by God.”
