Amnesty International's "Abolish the Death Penalty" campaign over the years.

The Death Penalty is not a deterrent.
The Death Penalty is racist.
The Death Penalty is arbitrary.
The Death Penalty is expensive.
The Death Penalty is cruel and unusual.
The Death Penalty is irrevocable.
The Death Penalty has killed the innocent.
The Death Penalty kills children.
The Death Penalty kills the mentally disabled.
The Death Penalty kills the poor.
The Death Penalty is a cheap vote.
The Death Penalty dehumanizes.

Some people call it justice.
Some people call it necessary evil.
Whatever people call it, the Death Penalty will always be premeditated murder.

Amnesty International opposes the death penalty in all cases, regardless of the characteristics of the offender, the crime or the method of execution. Amnesty International opposes the death penalty on the grounds that it is a violation of the right to life and the right not to be subject to cruel or inhumane treatment or punishment. These rights are fundamental rights enshrined in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Join us in the fight to #AbolishDeathPenalty...your signature is more powerful than you think.
