    Oklahoma pharmacy agrees not to provide drug for inmate's execution

    Oklahoma Pharmacy Agrees Not to Provide Drug for Missouri Inmate's Execution - ABC News

    as I shake my head at yet another fashionable liberal "cause" it makes me wonder what the actual point of this is. Put pressure on the drug companies not to provide lethal doses to executions isn't going to stop executions. To what end? You don't think they will find another(probably more painful) way to off these prisoners? I thought these drugs were the MOST humane way to do this sort of thing. If the left wants us to go back to hangings I promise you they will be able to acquire enough rope to do the job.

    So, what in the hell kind of drug does Missouri need to get from Oklahoma, that their own pharmacies can't provide? Am I missing something here?

    yes. Europe had produced most of the lethal "cocktails" that were used by the various US states. Because they do not like a death penalty, the big pharmacies withdrew these from the market -
    so the US states had to use "compound pharmacies" - which are basically special orders (not mass produced)

    Those to be executed were appealing this practice as 'cruel and unusual', but the states ( for the most part) refused to disclose. Thus is about all I know. more info:

    The nation's shortage of execution drugs is becoming increasingly acute as more compounding pharmacies conclude that supplying the lethal chemicals is not worth the bad publicity and the legal and ethical risks.

    The scarcity of drugs for lethal injections has forced states to scramble for substitutes. And experts say that whatever alternatives are found will almost certainly face costly court challenges made more complicated by laws that cloak the process in secrecy.

    Bring back hanging, the chair or a single bullet. All are just as effective and likely much cheaper.

    I'm so pro-life I'm upset when we can't kill people.

    Sortof like when conservatives try to close abortion clinics, it's because they support using coat hangers.

    no. pretty sure the equivalent would be if the anti-abortion people leaned on the companies that sold the vacuums the doctors use to suck out the babies. What would be the point when, as you pointed out, they could just grab a coat hanger.
