The statement below indicates:

“We were delighted to learn that the South Carolina Supreme Court has temporarily stayed the execution of Richard Moore. We hope the judges will make the same decision regarding the execution of Brad Keith Sigmon, who is now due to die on the 13 may.

“Everyone is created in the likeness of God; their life should be protected from the moment of conception until natural death. Justice is not restored when another person is killed; therefore, we pray that the court commutes the death sentences of the two men. »
