Pharmacists: Stop participating in executions
The American Pharmacists Association and state pharmacy boards should ban members of their profession from participating in executions.
Nearly all major pharmaceutical manufacturers have blocked use of their drugs for executions, leaving states to contract "on the down-low" with a handful of "compounding pharmacists." For a few pieces of silver, these pharmacists—who are not regulated by the FDA—create their own drugs that will, however painfully or slowly, cause the death of the recipient. It is time for pharmacists' associations to honor their oaths to do no harm to their patients and join all other major medical associations in the US in banning their members from participating in executions!
