Do you live in Colorado? Your advocacy is crucial to ending the state's death penalty! On Wednesday, March 6, the Colorado Senate Judiciary Committee passed death penalty repeal bill SB 182. Now, the bill currently awaits a full Senate vote expected in the next several days before moving on to the House for consideration.
You can help by contacting your legislators and urging them to vote YES on SB 182. The collective power of the Catholic voice is critical to helping this legislation cross the finish line. Your Senators and Representatives need to hear from you so they know ending the death penalty is a priority for Catholics in Colorado.
The death penalty does not serve as a deterrent, it risks innocent lives and costs tax payers millions of dollars more than life without parole. More importantly, it is an egregious act against the dignity of the human person and is against pro-life values. CMN is calling on all people of goodwill in Colorado to voice their support for abolishing the death penalty.
Thank you for raising your voice for life to stop this egregious practice of violence! You are encouraged and welcomed to customize this letter.
