Petition to End the Death Penalty – HB 485

We, the undersigned, respectfully urge the Georgia House Judiciary Non-Civil Committee to hold a hearing as soon as possible on House Bill 485.  HB 485 would repeal the death penalty in Georgia and replace it with life without parole. As pro-life people, we cannot accept the risk of wrongful conviction, leading to the execution of an innocent person. Seven people have already been exonerated from death row here in Georgia. The imposition of the death penalty is riddled with racial bias and unequal justice for the accused. Georgia’s standard for proving mental disability is capital cases is the highest in the nation, risking sending people with mental disabilities to death.  In addition, millions of dollars are spent on capital trials, incarceration, and lengthy appeals. This money should be used for solving other crimes, investing in education to prevent crime, and providing more services to victims and their families. Georgia already leads the way with some of the nation’s strongest pro-life laws. Now we need your support to expand that commitment with a hearing on HB 485. Thank you!
