Illinois Senate Abolishes the Death Penalty!Posted: January 12, 2011
Amidst all of the talk of our nation’s violent political rhetoric, here’s a ray of light: the Illinois senate voted yesterday to abolish the death penalty in our state! In other words, they took a stand against “state-sponsored” violence.
The bill now goes to Governor Pat Quinn, who has not indicated yet whether or not he intends to sign. Illinois residents: contact Governor Quinn now and let him know you want Illinois to be the 16th state to strike down the death penalty!
