- United States of America
I started this petition to let America know that we believe capital punishment is barbaric.
America is the only western country to still use it.
Does America really want to be in the same box as China, Saudi Arabia and certain African and Muslim countries?
Capital punishment creates more victims, the loved ones of the condemned inmates.
We can't bring their victims back by executing people.
States that have abolished it have seen the crime rate goes down. People who implement it, have seen the crime rate increase !
Innocent people have been executed and still are. DNA tests have proven it to be so.
I think that condemned inmates should have the right to donate non life threatening organs and blood and bone marrow for the rest of their lives in return for their sentences being commuted to life or life without parole, for states who refuse to abolish it.
Many executions have been botched. One inmate took over 2 hours to die and was clearly in pain. That's called torture and is illegal under the 8th Amendment.
Please sign this petition. This draconian horror does not belong in a civilized nation!
We, the undersigned, call on the Supreme Court of America and President Donald Trump to abolish the death penalty.
It is a draconian practise and a form of torture; illegal under the 8th Amendment.
Many condemned inmates have undergone botched executions; the worst taking over 2 hours for the man to die.
The death penalty creates new victims; the condemned 's loved ones.
Let them donate non life threatening organs and blood and bone marrow for the rest of their lives; to save the lives of people on waiting lists, who would otherwise die. It's saving lives for those they took; saving their families from suffering.
