Lundbeck: the great pretender!

June 9, 2011 - Lundbeck: The Great Pretender

But wait!! Not only the great pretender but now also the master of media stunts, what an impressive record indeed!

Lundbeck ‘horrified’ at Drug Execution Use”?? Who can believe it? Certainly not the 13 Lundbeck patients executed so far or the other 6 Lundbeck patients awaiting execution this month in the United States.

Mr. Kronborg, who recently joined the Lundbeck killing family, should certainly review the background to get the whole story and/or stop taking Lundbeck’s magic sleeping pills to wake up for real and fast!

We are horrified at this fact and are looking at ways to prevent prisons from getting this drug, including tougher conditions on distribution, Lundbeck spokesman Mads Kronborg said Wednesday”

as quoted in an article written by Sten Stovall for the Wall Street Journal published yesterday.

So, what happened, in December 2010, the moment Lundbeck realized that pentobarbital had been purchased by departments of corrections in the US to be used for executions, then after receiving suggestions for a number of well-thought and feasible solutions, to the point today when we read such a ridiculous and hypocritical statement? What else, other than good intentions, have we seen? Nothing!

But it gets better every day, now we read “The Lethal-Drug Maker That’s Helping End Lethal Injections”, written by Raymond Bonner and published online by the Altantic. Lundbeck has not “decided to review its position”, it’s merely considering options for the future while 13 Lundbeck patients have been killed, 13 families are wrecked for the rest of their lives and how many more is it going to take for Lundbeck to ACT? Is there a magic number that will eventually make the situation unbearable to the point of actually doing something about it?

When a European pharmaceutical laboratory is so deeply entangled into medical ethics and human rights violations but does nothing to resolve it, one can only wonder what kind of business Lundbeck is actually involved in. After paying doctors to promote its drug on the US market, is Lundbeck paying journalists too as third-party publicists? If you have information, please let us know, anonymity guaranteed!

What we are seeing, through these two articles, is Lundbeck’s true and ugly face.

More than ever before, it is URGENT to ACT NOW, bring this European medical death trade to an end.

Consider sending your feedback and comments to the Altantic about Mr. Bonner’s surreal article.



About The Pentobarbital Experiment

"Lundbeck is a global pharmaceutical company engaged in the research and development, production, marketing and sale of drugs for treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders." As the sole supplier of Pentobarbital to US departments of corrections, Danish company Lundbeck took an active and dedicated part in the executions of human beings. This is a clear violation of its ethical obligations as a European pharmaceutical laboratory. Its manufacturing plant for Pentobarbital is based in Kansas, USA. Here is the full story: the facts and the numbers brought to you by European activists dedicated to the universal abolition of the death penalty. Disclaimer: This blog was created to raise awareness and to encourage legitimate citizen actions to bring an end to the torturous executions in the USA. It does not, and never did advocate violence or retaliation against whoever participates in the legal lynchings of human beings. View all posts by The Pentobarbital Experiment

    I am one of the thirteen family members, and Lundbeck can never give me back what was taken from me. Secondly, wither you believe in capitol punishment or not, United States Justice system is flawed! You can not impose the ultimate punishment when the system is severely tarnished. Not everyone on death row is guilty, not everyone had proper representation, and not everyone is competent to stand trial or execution! What you will find is the system is racially biased! It attacks at the poor who are unable to afford representation.

    I struggle each and every day just to get out of bed! I am lost because Lundbeck assisted in taking the most important person in the world from me.

      Dear Michelle,

      thank you for your moving comment. You put a face on this tragedy, something Lundbeck overlooks entirely.
      Never forget that you are not alone, and that we will keep on fighting for the loved one you lost and for all others.
