TAKE ACTION: Tell Gov. McCrory: Transparency in Capital Punishment is Crucial

TAKE ACTION: Tell Gov. McCrory: Transparency in Capital Punishment is Crucial

A dangerous bill heading to Governor Pat McCrory would remove transparency from capital punishment in North Carolina. HB 774 would no longer require doctors to be present at executions and would allow the state to keep secret information about lethal injection drugs used to kill inmates.

Tell Gov. McCrory that executions carried out in the public's name must be transparent. Urge him to veto HB 774!

Horrifically botched executions in other states have demonstrated that we need more transparency, not less, when it comes to who is supervising executions and which drugs are being used to kill inmates.

North Carolina can’t hide behind a veil of secrecy when it carries out this ultimate and irreversible punishment. Courts, lawyers and the public have a right to know basic details about how the government executes inmates in their name.
