Death Penalty Public Forum

with guest panelist Sheila Pursell

On April 15, 2017, Public Discussions NWA held a forum entitled "What if We Could Save  the Lives of Eight Men?  Or Should the State of Arkansas Execute Them?"  NWA Director, Sheila Pursell, presented ALL life is sacred and the right to human life should be supported from conception to natural death due to the inherent goodness of persons.  The facts that the cost of executions are far more substantial than life in prison with out parole, it is not proven that the death penalty deters crime and that the death penalty often prolongs the suffering of the victims family and friends were also discussed. 

Please pray for the victim's loved ones and the 8 men on death row in Arkansas.
