SB 19 182 Repeal the Death Penalty – will be debated on the Senate floor during second reading tomorrow, Wednesday, March 20, 2019.
We believe that all people have a natural right to life, because every human being is made in the image and likeness of God, who alone is Lord of life from its beginning until its end (cf. Genesis 1: 26-28).
The state of Colorado has other means available to it besides the death penalty to exact justice and render a criminal unable to do harm. We need to continue the reform of our criminal justice system, and we need to impose punishment in a way that protects society from violence while avoiding further killing under official guise.
Please contact your State Senator and ask him or her to ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY IN COLORADO.
