Follow us on Social Media, read our article in the Catholic Telegraph, watch the video interviews, and listen to the podcast so that we can all come to a better understanding of what BEING PRO-LIFE really means.

Kwame was just 17 years old when he, along with his older brother and another childhood friend were sentenced to death for the robbery and murder of a man outside a convenience store in Cleveland, OH. The three had no criminal records, no physical evidence against them was found, and credible eye-witnesses testified it could not have been them. The sole evidence in their convictions was the testimony of a 12-year old boy, Edward Vernon. Thirty-nine years later, Edward came forward to admit that police detectives coerced him to testify falsely under threat of putting his mother in jail. The case was finally overturned and the three men exonerated in 2014. Listen to Kwame’s story, and that of others, as to why the death penalty should be abolished and how you can get involved in that right here in Ohio.
