Lundbeck’s Pentobarbital kills its 31st patient in Alabama on October 20, 2011.
Christopher Johnson died by lethal injection at Holman prison in Atmore, Alabama. He was a 38-year old man suffering from mental illnesses. His last word was: “game over”. He was pronounced dead at 6:25pm
Lundbeck continues to keep its head in the sand, while being the shame of the pharmaceutical profession in Europe. Since its decision to implement a controlled distribution system of Pentobarbital in the US last June 2011, it has not taken any steps to block the use of its products for human executions, but keeps lamenting about the misuse of Pentobarbital by US departments of corrections. No half measure there, if such a strong opposition existed, Lundbeck would not have waited six months to implement a secure distribution system in the US, and it would have taken legal action to block its product from being used to kill people.
Lundbeck is now responsible for 31 of the 39 executions carried out so far in the United States since December 2010.
One more patient awaits Lundbeck’s treatment in October 2011:
Frank Garcia, Texas, October 27, 2011
