SB 17 095 Repeal the Death Penalty
This bill would abolish the death penalty in the state of Colorado.
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.
This bill will be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday, February 15 at 1:30 p.m. in committee room 271.
ACTION: Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and your state Senator and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 95.
