Death Penalty Repeal Bill Officially passed in Maryland!

It’s official!

Today, Governor Martin O’Malley signed Maryland’s death penalty repeal bill into law.  This makes Maryland the 18th state to repeal the death penalty.

The momentum that we have seen in support of abolition, not only in Maryland but across the entire country, reflects the changing public opinion towards the death penalty.  We know that it is time to end capital punishment here in Delaware, and we are closer than ever to seeing that happen.  We want the Delaware legislature to follow in Maryland’s footsteps, bringing an end to the unjust, ineffective, and expensive practice of the death penalty.

Email the House Judiciary Committee Today, urging them to support SB 19.
