When is Murder Not Murder? When the Victim is a Woman in Texas

When is Murder Not Murder? When the Victim is a Woman in Texas

About the Petition

A woman should have the right to say ‘No’ to having sex with a man, and yet a court in Texas recently exonerated Ezekiel Gilbert for murdering an escort in a motel after she refused to have intercourse. He will not be imprisoned for this injustice, and it’s simply because she was paid $150 for the evening. According to Texas law Ezekiel is justified in his actions because individuals are within their rights “to use deadly force to recover property during nighttime theft.”

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has the opportunity to influence elected and legal officials by stating that no one can be shot for refusing to have sexual relations. We need to send a clear message to Texas and the whole country: this sort of behavior will not be tolerated.

Stand with organizations like UltraViolet— make sure Ezekiel Gilbert and people like him aren’t allowed to walk away from soliciting and murdering women!
