Sentenced to death: Lisa Montgomery, scheduled execution on December 8, 2020
Execution date: 12 January 2021
Place of execution: Terre Haute, IN (Federal Penitentiary) - United States

Lisa Montgomery, 53 years old. Her execution was rescheduled for January 12, 2020

At present Lisa is in a detention heath center in Forth Worth, Texas.
Today, federal authority rejects any evidence and appeal in defense of Lisa.
Being close those who cannot cease suffering from this a heinous and unjust crime, we are firmly aware that no reparation come by putting to death another human being, a woman in condition of extreme fragility. There is no justice without life. There is no justice without considering, in the face of the greatest evil, the reasons of mercy.
We ask those who can decide for life to stop and consider, as increasingly achieved worldwide, any viable alternative measure of justice and clemency.

Lisa Montgomery is now 53 years old. She was sentenced to death for the ferocious murder of an eight month pregnant woman, and kidnapping her unborn baby. The little girl survived and is now 16 years old.
Since her childhood, Lisa has been suffering from unsolved mental disease and repeated sex abuse in her family environment.
According to the Death Penalty Information Center the last woman executed in by the federal government was Bonnie Heady, killed in the gas chamber in 1953.
More than 1,00 lawyers signed letters who appeal to President Donald Trump to commute her death sentence to life without parole pointing to her grave mental illnesses. “Readers often confuse clemency with pardon in death penalty cases,” says Sandra Babcock, a clinical professor of law at Cornell Law School and faculty director of the Cornell Center on the Death Penalty Worldwide, who is working to delay Montgomery’s execution so her lawyers can present a clemency petition. “We are not asking that she be absolved of guilt. What we’re asking is that she be extended mercy,” she added. Lisa’s execution is presently rescheduled for January 12, 2021 because her lawyers contracted Covid-19. They hope to present the elements for evidence and appeal in Lisa’s defense. Lisa would be the first woman in 67 years to be executed by the federal government.
