You really don't know much about Biden do you.
Yes, although it's not clear what Biden can do beyond merely not executing people. At least for the time being, there is a Supreme Court majority for the death penalty, so that every case that comes before review there currently is rapidly dismissed in favour of killing somebody. Presumably the reason is that it is judged to be Constitutional -- in which case, Biden if he wants to achieve anything on this front would need to lead a push to get Congress to introduce an Amendment that has the support of 34 States.
Careful what you wish for.
you won't get that much sympathy from the Americans and many others on this - she murdered a pregnant mother by strangulation and then cut the baby out, 8 months into gestation.
Dreadful crime.
It does appear that this execution may have violated the 8th amendment as stated
Most Americans now oppose the death penalty.
Biden supported it in the days when it was popular. That’s why I’m glad it’s version 78.0 who’s been elected now.
"Let's Hope Biden Brings This Barbarism To An End." - I thought this was going to be a thread about the US health care system!
A sad case all round - loads of background in this article:

Montgomery was let down by her country from the beginning of her life to the end of it and, eventually, it was her country that brought that end. No winners in this story, only losers, even if she'd been reprieved.
The family and friends of Bobbie Jo Sinnett might not think her execution was wrong.
I notice that the apologists for this vile woman are playing the 'mentally ill' card as usual.
Mentally ill, jackdaw does not mean legally insane. It's a horrific crime and suggesting mental illness makes it better, is just bizarre.
She cut a baby out of its mother's womb = 2 lives lost. She deserves to die.
She was not ill when she planned it all.
How do you know, Fcc? Even the link seems to suggest she didn't know what she was doing.
Obviously, it makes no difference to the victims either way.
But there seems to be a divide between those who believe all victims and families purely want revenge...
And those who would prefer mental illnesses were better understood and it didn't happen in the first place.
Killing an evil person is one thing, killing a sick person, is not the same.
//Lisa’s baseline state is pretty severely dissociated. From the moment we got there today, she was very detached from reality, //
She was no threat to society in prison, and her crime is not erased by her execution.

Biden will not be like Trump and the world will be relieved.
What's wrong with the family wanting revenge? she did not live round the corner but lived 100's of miles away so she was fit enough to drive.
Who said the family wanted revenge, fcc? That isn't usual. Even if they had done, I couldn't blame them- but it isn't their decision to make.
No idea what driving has to do with it?
If it's not the family's decision to make ,then stick to the original verdict,sentenced to death.
