Colorado becomes latest state to repeal death penalty

Denver, Colo., Mar 24, 2020 / 06:19 pm (CNA).- The Catholic bishops of Colorado have welcomed the repeal of the death penalty, as the state becomes the 22nd to repeal capital punishment.

“For many years, the Colorado Catholic Conference has supported efforts to repeal the death penalty, and we are grateful for the determination and commitment it took for the state legislature to pass this bill,” the Colorado Catholic Conference said March 23.

“We believe that human life is sacred from conception until natural death,” said the Catholic conference, which represents the four bishops and three dioceses of Colorado. “We believe that, because God made us in his image and likeness, it is not possible to lose the dignity that confers to our lives. We are, as Jesus said, his brothers and sisters, even if we have committed great crimes or sins.”
