8 executions in 10 days? No way, Arkansas.
This petition had 49,740 supporters
Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson plans on doing something that has never been done in this country – execute eight prisoners in four days.
The state is rushing to execute these eight men because Arkansas’ supply of a controversial execution drug, midazolam, is going to expire on April 30th.
Executions are wrong. And Arkansas’ plan is a cruel and unusual killing spree.
Arkansas wants to use an execution drug combination – including midazolam – that’s never been used before in the state and risks making prisoners feel as if they are burning alive from the inside while paralyzed.
Midazolam has caused botched and painful executions so Florida and Arizona have stopped using it, and an Ohio judge recently ruled to halt midazolam executions.
These facts aren’t stopping Hutchinson. So we need to raise our voices together to put pressure on him.
