Repeal the death penalty in Delaware

Repeal the death penalty in Delaware

Why is this important?

I was born and raised in Wisconsin, which does not have a death penalty, and followed arguments in favor and against for many years now. It has never been shown to have a deterrent effect, only to provide revenge, which does nothing for elevating the citizenry.

As the state senate has passed the repeal and the governor has agreed to support, we only need the Delaware House to approve the repeal so that Delaware can stand with the other states which have eliminated this barbaric act.
