On January 31, state lawmakers introduced House Bill 392. If passed, it would allow Ohio to utilize nitrogen gas to carry out its capital punishment cases. This is an inhumane method of execution that ends a life through asphyxiation. Nitrogen hypoxia is literally suffocation by poisonous gas.
Experts appointed by the United Nations have even cautioned that this method could amount to torture in violation of human rights treaties.
It is time for Ohio to abolish the death penalty entirely, not waste time and resources to expand its processes.
TAKE ACTION: Tell the Ohio House Government Oversight Committee to STOP House Bill 392.
