Mar 03, 2009 Marylanders: Senate vote on death penalty repeal coming as early as first thing March 4
Tonight, I heard from a death penalty abolitionist about the fast and furious pace of actions in the full Maryland Senate over efforts to repeal the death penalty. Some senators are proposing substitute provisions that will continue the death penalty and institute questionable safeguards against executing the innocent.
The only way to prevent the execution of the innocent is to abolish the death penalty. Voting on repealing or not repealing the death penalty may start as early as tomorrow, Wednesday, at 9:00 a.m. Please call and email your Maryland state senator now. Death penalty opponents: On this issue in particular, never give up; never give in.
