The Push for Death Penalty Repeal in Ohio

June 9, 2021

The death penalty is an expensive, ineffective, racist, and arbitrary system that puts innocent lives at risk. Currently, 23 states, plus Washington, D.C., have cut ties with the death penalty; Ohio can and should be next.

At the Ohio Statehouse, a bipartisan team of lawmakers has introduced legislation to abolish the death penalty in Ohio once and for all. Senate Bill 103 and House Bill 183 are identical, companion bills that would repeal Ohio’s death penalty.
