PRESS MORE FOR INFO.
This is a video I made to illustrate a few extremely valid points as to why exactly the death penalty should be abolished. Feel free to share your views if you are either against or for the death penalty, your views are all welcome. I will not, however, accept any hateful comments, and they will be deleted. If you have an opinion, please give reasons, I'm extremely interested in your point of view.
Things that YOU can do to help stop the death penalty:
1) If your state has abolition or moratorium bills pending, write your representatives in the state legislature and/or your governor expressing your support for the bill and articulating your personal objections to the death penalty. If there is no such bill pending in your state legislature, write your representatives to ask that they consider sponsoring such a bill.
In 2007 abolition or moratorium bills were introduced in Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
2) Find the abolition groups in your state here:
