Speak Out Against the Death Penalty
Billy Wardlow committed a robbery and murder in 1993, when he was just 18. He has always expressed remorse, and he maintains that there was never a plan to kill anyone, but that during the robbery Mr. Cole resisted and the gun went off.
Mr. Wardlow is scheduled to die for that crime today. Please Click here to read Wardlow’s petition asking the US Supreme Court to take his case, and call Texas Governor Abbott at 512-463-2000 to ask for mercy for Billy Wardlow.
