Murder Victims' Families for Human Rights

``Our opposition is grounded not so much upon our concern with what the death penalty does to killers, but because of what the death penalty does to us, to society.  We believe that a replication by the state of the deadly violence that took our loved ones from us make us all killers. And from our victim identity, we do not want to be killers."

MVFHR Executive Director, Renny Cushing, speaking
to the North Korean National Assembly, November, 2004
