Kentucky’s Fairness Campaign calls on Gov. Beshear to reverse his decision to execute Gregory Wilson

The Fairness Campaign has joined with KCADP and other groups across Kentucky, asking Gov. Steve Beshear not to execute Gregory Wilson.

The Fairness Campaign has joined with KCADP and other groups across Kentucky, asking Gov. Steve Beshear not to execute Gregory Wilson.

The Fairness Campaign is a broad-based community effort dedicated to equal rights. Its primary goal is comprehensive civil rights legislation prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. It’s also one of KCADP’s partners.

Yesterday the campaign’s director Chris Hartman’s sent this e-mail to the group’s followers:

Friends, The Fairness Campaign has long held a position in opposition to the death penalty. As many of you know, Governor Steve Beshear has ordered Kentucky inmate Gregory Wilson be put to death. While some recent court proceedings may delay the execution set for Thursday, they may not.

Please contact Governor Steve Beshear and ask him to reverse his decision to put Gregory Wilson to death by calling his office at (502) 564-2611.

Then, please attend one of these vigils…or ride a bus with the Kentucky Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty to Eddyville the night of the planned execution.

Thank you,
Chris Hartman, Director

    How cruel it is to seek revenge. Working among the death row inmates brought compassion and devotion to all on death row. It came as a huge struggle when our youngest brother was cruelly murdered on a city street. Shock, anger, frustration were natural responses until close contact with the Eddyville group, and Greg Wilson in particular. This is murder by the State, and brings no comfort to any person who follows plain old natural law. Animals do not kill their own. Why do humans want to destroy life?
