Murder Victims' Families for
2161 Massachusetts Ave.
Cambridge, MA 02140
"I have come to
believe that the death penalty is not what will help me heal.
Responding to one killing with another killing does not honor my daughter,
nor does it help create the kind of society I want to live in, where human
life and human rights are valued. I know that an execution creates
another grieving family, and causing pain to another family does not
lessen my own pain."
MVFHR board member, Vicki Schieber, testifying to the Subcommittee on
Civil Rights and Property Rights; Committee on the
Judiciary; US Senate, February 2006.
