Last week I shared the 50-plus page clemency application by the only woman on death row: Kelly Renee Gissendaner.

She was scheduled to be put to death last night, but the execution was delayed due to concerns over the quality of the lethal injection drug to be used. As of this writing, the Department of Corrections has halted all planned executions in the state as they examine the lethal injection drugs used. Brian Keith Terrell, who was scheduled to be put death Tuesday, March 10, is also affected by this decree. And his clemency hearing was recently postponed.

With regard to Gissendaner, this is the second time the state deferred her execution since the Board of Pardons and Parole denied her clemency petition.

Gissendaner based the clemency plea on having become a changed woman while behind bars. She's embraced her faith and seems to have connected with her children. She said she's become a guide to other inmates.

We wanted to hear what you thought about her plea for clemency. And you responded.

Jim Sandefur says he's against the death penalty. Yet he also opposes Gissendaner's clemency being based on a spiritual awakening because it further clouds how the death penalty is applied: “Even if you support (like the vast majority of Georgians) the death penalty, the application of it is so random and arbitrary to make it ridiculously unfair - it's hard to understand how just a half year or so ago, a man who brutally killed a woman and cut her into pieces gets life with a possibility of parole and this person who hired someone to kill someone gets the death penalty. Had this woman been wealthy, she would probably be up for parole by now.”

Andy Wilson called himself a proponent of the death penalty but said he would have commuted Gissendaner's sentence to life in prison: “I believe the totality of her life now, not just one thing, would lead me to that conclusion. Any one can pull the "God card", but after years of watching her, so many people seem to have seen a real change in her, that to put her to death just seems like such a waste. I especially like that people from all different backgrounds seemed to support her, not just her family or a pastor, but jailers, teachers, etc. You expect it from family and religious leaders, but not so much from those in the prison industry.”

And finally, this direct statement by Susannah Cox Maddux: “A boyfriend who gets life... the weather... murky medicine... I cannot imagine the torture she is enduring. I CAN imagine the many who could benefit from her example.”
