Korean bishops join in call to abolish capital punishment
Catholic World News - December 31, 2010
The Catholic bishops of Korea have joined in a call for the abolition of the death penalty.
Although South Korea has not carried out a death penalty since 1997, and the country is listed by Amnesty International as an “abolitionist in practice,” there are still 61 prisoners on death row, theoretically awaiting execution.
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
