Allow Last Rites Administered to Death Row Inmates sign now

Current Oklahoma Law does not allow death row inmates to have physical contact with people outside of the prison system, ie., visitors, priests, etc. This practice prohibits Catholic inmates from receiving the Last Rites of the Roman Catholic Church. Freedom of religion should be honored in prison, even though many other civic rights have been stripped from these inmates.

We petition the State of Oklahoma to allow these death row inmates one physical visit with a Catholic priest specifically to receive the last rites. We understand that there is usually a chaplain available for prayer and consultation, however, Catholics must receive the last rites only from an ordained Catholic priest and physical contact is necessary for this. Catholics must be allowed one last chance to "get right with God" before their death sentences are carried out.

    Even in ancient times, last rites was not refused to the dying . Have we regressed to a level below that of barbarians? Last rites should never be denied to anyone who requests it. Zip Code 89104

    Its so funny. All you people think you know everything. Unfortunitly you do not know about religion. Only Catholic priest are allowed to administer last rights, however, a convicted murderer is not entitled to last rights for an execution, and, a convicte

    Every person deserves dignity and respect. A person who is being executed deserves last rights in accordance with our Catholic belief. No one should be denied access to spiritual practices, especially when they are being put to death, which is a violation

    The state, while arrogating to itself the power to dispossess persons of their liberty and even their life, does not, I imagine, claim authority over the life of the soul. In light of this, it seems particularly cruel and, in fact, an unauthorized extensi

    The death penalty is wrong. Killing a convicter killer makes one another killer. All those that stand by and aid in the death of another human, is also a killer. Why shouldn't a person be given last rites? It seems Americans are way behind in humanity and
