A Group Of Conservatives Is Fighting The Death Penalty

There are 2 bills making their way through the legislative process this session that would bring about an end to the death penalty in Louisiana. On the Senate side, SB 112 by Senator Dan Claitor hit a snag and was returned to the calendar. On the House side, HB 215 by Representative Terry Landry just cleared committee and moves to the full house floor.

Normally, you associate an opposition to the death penalty with the political left, but there is a growing group of conservatives that wants to see it end as well, Senator Claitor among them. I was curious as to why there was a growing change within the party, so I reached out to Hannah Cox from Conservatives Concerned About The Death Penalty to ask why.
