Pfizer now no longer supplies drugs to be used in the US lethal injection executions. Which means that there is now no major pharmaceutical company prepared to supply drugs to be used for executions. Or in other words even large capitalist-driven organisations that the major pharmaceuticals are find executions so morally repugnant that they want nothing to do with them.
So those US states have a number of options :-
- Try to find the drugs from “unauthorised” sources, which basically translates as obtaining drugs under false pretences.
- Try to find an alternative method of execution.
- Or finally do the right thing and stop executing people.
It’s time the US grew up and joined the civilised world.
