From the website...

The New Mexico Coalition to Repeal the Death Penalty is a nonprofit alliance of organizations and individuals committed to complete repeal of the death penalty. We provide accurate information, advocate meaningful public policy and mobilize others who share our goals. We also work to educate New Mexico citizens, elected officials and community leaders about the facts of the death penalty.

From the American Civil Liberties Union - Death Penalty website...

Death Penalty:
The death penalty is the ultimate denial of civil liberties. In the past 30 years, 123 inmates were found to be innocent and released from death row.

From an address by Gov Ryan of Illinois 3 June 2002 at a
Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life event at
University of Chicago Divinity School

When the thirteenth inmate was exonerated,
I did the only thing I could do,
the only thing any governor could do - 
I halted executions.
