Pray for an end to the death penalty,
for those scheduled for execution,
for the victims of these crimes and
all whose lives have been impacted by violence.
In May, Dexter Johnson’s (TX) execution was stayed. Both Scotty Morrow (GA) and Donnie Edward Johnson (TN) who we listed here, were executed. In addition, 2 others were executed: Michael Samra (AL) and Bobby Joe Long (FL). Alva Campbell (OH) died of natural causes on death row.
Christopher Lee Price (AL) was executed on May 30.
Currently, no one is scheduled for execution in June.
“All Christians and people of good will are thus called today to fight not only for the abolition of the death penalty, whether legal or illegal, and in all its forms, but also in order to improve prison conditions, with respect for the human dignity of the people deprived of their freedom” – Pope Francis #Pledge4Mercy
