Stop Warren Hill's Execution in Georgia

Warren Hill is due to be put to death in Georgia, USA, on July 15. All seven experts who have assessed him now say that he has 'mental retardation', which would make his execution unconstitutional. Call on Georgia's Attorney General to support that effort

temporary stay on the execution, at least till Thursday 18 July.

UPDATE:
Warren Hill is still alive.

Just a week ago, it looked like the state of Georgia was going to execute Warren Hill, an intellectually disabled man with an IQ of 70. We asked you to send a message to the Attorney General and the Governor and you responded to the call.

Hill was granted a stay on the grounds that the secrecy surrounding Georgia’s lethal injection drugs violated his constitutional rights. The petition pending before the US Supreme Court on the claim that Warren Hill has "mental retardation," and that his execution would therefore violate the US Constitution is due to be considered on September 30.
