Please Take Action to Affirm the Dignity of Human Life
September 3rd, 2010
Teresa Lewis is scheduled to be executed September 23, 2010 in Virginia. She was convicted in 2002 of persuading two men to kill her husband and stepson. Teresa Lewis has been on death row in Virginia since June 2003.
Now 41 and a mother and grandmother, Teresa Lewis would be the first woman executed in Virginia since 1912.
In solidarity with the Virginia Catholic Bishops, the U.S. Catholic bishops and the Papal Nuncio, we ask you please to contact Governor McDonnell and urge him to commute Teresa Lewis’s sentence to life in prison.
