Dear ,

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter. You will be able to edit your name, address, etc. in the next step.

This letter supports actions by Amnesty International and the National Coalition to Abolish Capital Punishment. It goes to Congress and to the President.

Whoever said that life is cheap was not talking about the death penalty. It costs far more to execute a person than to keep him/her in prison for life.

Moreover, the notion that capital punishment is a deterrent to murder is false. The 16 US states without the death penalty have much lower murder rates than the other 34 do.

The alternative - life in prison without parole - allows mistakes to be corrected or new evidence to come to light.

Only three countries execute more prisoners than we do -- China, Iran, and Saudi Arabia. A nation aspiring to the role of world leader should set a righteous example instead of immorally executing its own citizens.

Click here to send this letter or to learn more (you can edit the subject or the letter itself in the next step, if you wish).

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Director
