EMERGENCY: STOP THE TEXAS EXECUTION OF FRANCES NEWTON
ON SEPTEMBER 14!

FRANCES IS THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN
SCHEDULED TO BE EXECUTED BY TEXAS IN MODERN HISTORY.

NEW EVIDENCE AFFIRMS HER INNOCENCE.

Please join the online campaign to STOP THE EXECUTION OF FRANCES
NEWTON! She is scheduled to be executed by the state of Texas on
September 14.
YOUR EMERGENCY ACTION IS NEEDED NOW!
Send emails to Texas Governor Rick Perry, Attorney General Greg Abbott,
President Bush, Congressional leaders and Senators and Representatives
from Texas and the Texas State Legislature, the Mayor of Houston and
Houston City Councilors, The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, U.N.
Secy General Kofi Anan and your senators and representative, DEMANDING
that Frances' execution be stopped IMMEDIATELY!

Go to

for the following letter to be sent in your name:

Sample Text (you will be able to edit it on the website):
........................................................
Governor Perry, Attorney General Abbott, President Bush, Senators and
Representatives, Houston Mayor White, Houston City Councilors, and
Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles:

On September 14, 2005, Frances Newton, AN INNOCENT WOMAN, is scheduled
to be executed by the state of Texas. If the jury had known the facts
that are presently known, they would not have found Frances guilty nor
given her the death sentence. The dubious motive, unrealistic timeline,
the police's refusal to follow important leads, and most of all, her
incompetent counsel, all point to the compelling evidence that proves
Frances Newton is innocent. She has been on death row for 18 years, and
you have already granted her a 120- day stay. But on the basis of new
evidence, Frances needs to finally have her day in court. We plead to
you in good conscience to STOP THE EXECUTION OF FRANCES NEWTON.

Sincerely,

-------
