Your legislators have the authority to propose and support legislation which would repeal the death penalty from your state. 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.
Your Governor has the authority to sign a death penalty repeal bill and make it the law of your state.
“Todos los cristianos y hombres de buena voluntad están llamadas hoy a trabajar no sólo por la abolición de la pena de muerte, sino también para mejorar las condiciones de las cárceles, en el respeto de la dignidad humana de las personas privadas de libertad.” - Papa Francisco
