One more nail. . . one more House

The Senate of the Philippines just passed the abolition bill! One more chamber to go--the House, unfortunately.

One more nail in the coffin before the death penalty is dead--again (in 1987, the Constitution abolished the death penalty; in 1994, it was restored).

I pray that the majority of the members of the House can rise above themselves to vote on the abolition bill so that, finally, the death penalty can be removed from the statute books.
