California Voters Will Decide on Death Penalty - News - ABA Journal
One thing we, Filipinos, can be proud of is the fact that our country has abolished DEATH PENALTY ahead of the states of the USA. It's one of Gloria Arroyo's legacy, notwithstanding the corrupt and cruel character of her 9-year tenure. If I recall correctly, Illinois was the latest US state that abolished the death penalty. It will be noted that the 2nd protocol of the 1966 Convention on Civil and Political Rights had long ago abolished the death penalty.
