Since ex-President Donald Trump pushed for Federal Executions to begin again in the last year of his Presidency, 13 people have been executed by the U.S. Federal Government. 

History will show that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought bitterly to protect sanctity of life and questioned the due process of rushed Federal Executions.  Time and time again appeals have shown innocent people are put on death row with little to no evidence or misattributed statements or evidence. 

The psychological strain of years in solitary AND death row has been shown to often be a torture worse than death.  Death row is often automatic 24 hour solitary confinement and accomodations are limited for any outside contact more than multiple murders off death row.  If we were a country that killed for every death we would all be dead by now.

There is always hope for rehabilitation, redemption, forgiveness.  It is with these sentiments that we entreat the Biden Administration to immediately cancel all Federal Executions and further ban the Death Penalty nationwide.

These are the names of the 13 inmates executed by the Trump Administration:
