UPDATE #1 — Billy Wardlow Denied 2X in Texas yesterday
Billy Wardlow still has a petition pending before the US Supreme Court, however he was denied by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles voted yesterday 6–1 to deny a recommendation of clemency. If you have not already done so, please sign and share this petition and also call Governor Abbott to demand that he stop this execution: 512–463–2000. We will deliver all signatures received by 2pm EDT on Wednesday, July 8.
Even if you have already called, please call again right now. Our goal is to jam the lines. If it is busy, just keep trying.
