Sr. Helen Prejean urges students to help abolish death penalty in U.S.

Sr. Helen Prejean asked the students a direct question: If in some way you're not engaged in resisting state-sponsored execution, can you be said to be complicit in the person's death? An activist against the death penalty, Prejean is best known as the author of "Dead Man Walking," an account of her friendship with a death-row inmate who was executed in Louisiana that was made into an Academy Award-winning movie. The Sister of St. Joseph gave a luncheon presentation to small groups of students from Juan Diego and Judge Memorial Catholic high schools and Westminster College.
