Conservative Legislators Split over Death Penalty

Discussion of Missouri’s capital punishment got an early start this session, as several republican legislators have filed bills calling for the controversial criminal sentencing act to be abolished. In collaboration with Missourians for the Abolition of the Death Penalty and the Missouri Catholic Conference, Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty (CCADP) held a press conference this week at the Missouri Capitol featuring several republican authors of anti-death penalty bills. Further information on the press conference can be found here courtesy of the Riverfront Times.


La pena de muerte divide a los legisladores conservadores

El tema de la pena de muerte ha surgido pronto en este periodo de sesiones legislativas, pues varios legisladores republicanos han presentado iniciativas para limitarla o abolirla. Así pues, esta semana los grupos Missourians for the Abolition of the Death Penalty (Misurianos por la abolición de la pena de muerte) y Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty (Conservadores preocupados por la pena de muerte) organizaron una rueda de prensa conjunta en el Capitolio de Missouri. Para saber más, puede consultar aquí el artículo del Riverfront Times (en inglés).
