First execution of a woman in the United States in nearly seventy years

First execution of a woman in the United States in nearly seventy years


However, her lawyers had pointed out that she was suffering from severe mental disorders.


This will remain as one of the last acts of Donald Trump'spresidency. The United States on Wednesday in Indiana carried out the first federal execution of a woman in nearly 70 years, the U.S. Department of Justice announced. Lisa Montgomery, 52, "was executed at the Terre-Haute federal penitentiary" after the U.S. Supreme Court gave the go-ahead on Tuesday night.


The high court refused at midnight to final appeals filed by Lisa Montgomery's lawyers, despite the disagreement of its three progressive judges. In 2004, she killed an eight-month pregnant woman in order to steal her fetus. Unable to have a new child, Lisa Montgomery had spotted her victim, a dog breeder, on the Internet and had come to her home in Missouri under the pretext of buying her a burrow. At the scene, she strangled her, opened her uterus, took the baby, who survived, and left her in a pool of blood.


"Ms. Montgomery is so far from reality"


Without denying the seriousness of her crime, her lawyers had pointed out that she suffered from severe mental disorders, consequences of violence and rape in meetings suffered as a child. On Monday night, a federal judge ordered a stay of execution while his mental state was assessed. "Ms. Montgomery is so far removed from reality that she cannot rationally understand the administration's motive for her execution," Justice Patrick Hanlon said.


However, an appeals court before the Justice Department overturned the decision on Tuesday, and the Supreme Court, which was radically overhauled by Donald Trump, upheld its decision. A staunch supporter of capital punishment, like his most conservative voters, the Republican president also ignored a request for clemency from Lisa Montgomery's supporters.


Despite the decline in capital punishment in the United States and around the world, his administration resumed in July, after a 17-year hiatus, with federal executions and has been carrying them on at an unprecedented rate ever since. Ten Americans have received lethal injections in Terre-Haute since the summer, and the Trump administration plans to execute two men this week, Corey Johnson on Thursday and Dustin Higgs on Friday.



Probable new deal with Joe Biden


Again, a fierce legal battle is underway. A federal court decided on Tuesday to postpone their execution for several weeks on the grounds that they were contaminated by Covid-19. Former prison guards have called on the Ministry of Justice to postpone the executions "until prison staff are vaccinated" against the virus.


On the subject of capital punishment, things could change with Joe Biden. The president-elect, who will be sworn in on January 20, is an opponent of the death penalty and has promised to work with Congress to ban it at the federal level.
