Special thanks to the Maryland Catholic Conference for this article. Hat tip: Karen Wingard

UPDATE:The House of Delegates on March 26 approved a plan to severely restrict cases in which the death penalty may be applied in Maryland. Under Senate Bill 279, which Gov.

Thank you for your continuing support of efforts to uphold the human dignity of all individuals.
