Conservatives in North Carolina and nationally are taking a stand to end capital punishment and replace it with life in prison without parole.
Polls show that public support for the death penalty has reached a 40-year low – even among conservatives who have traditionally been strong proponents of capital punishment.
Our state continues to spend millions of dollars a year on an unpopular punishment that is rarely used. We believe in tough crime-fighting tools that are efficient and have proven results. The death penalty fails at both efficiency and results.
