League of Women Voters of Texas Oppose Death Penalty for the Mentally Ill

The League of Women Voters of Texas' position on the death penalty includes a call to prohibit the execution of the mentally ill. The League's Fall 2007 newsletter, "Texas Voter," features a comprehensive article about mental illness and the death penalty and encourages League members to obtain a copy of a new Mental Illness and the Death Penalty Organizing Packet and postcards.

You can read the article here: http://www.lwvtexas.org/Voter%20Nov%202007.pdf.

Many thanks to Gloria Suarez-Sasser, the Capital Punishment Program Chair, for her support of this public education campaign.
