July 26, 2011 – Lundbeck’s Pentobarbital in the eye of the media!

Finally the media are waking up! What kept you: autism, depression, epilepsy? Guess what, Lundbeck has a medication for you too! 22 dead patients later, coverage is beginning, just beginning to hit right on the nail.

It starts with State Rep. Carlton Weddington of Columbus who said he wants details of the review of the death penalty protocol in Ohio, then we have a piece by Dara Kam for the “Palm Beach Post” about the Florida Supreme Court postponing Manuel Valle’s execution by one month, in order to hold a hearing on the “new lethal injection drug”, then an editorial in the Oklahoman entitled “Georgia last effort to derail death penalty”, to FiercePharma posting a piece entitled “Florida stops execution to study Lundbeck drug“, which mistakenly states that “Lundbeck immediately began fighting against the use of its drug for lethal injection” – immediately means at once, not 6 months and so many dead patients later, evidently we are not on the same wave length… and the Atlantic article “A View to a Kill“, by Andrew Cohen which raises a very interesting point: why not videotape all executions for evaluation by judges and lawyers? Very good question indeed. The veil of secrecy over state-sanctioned murders must be lifted, and surely all those responsible for a verdict of death should witness the executions so as to fully understand the consequences of their decision. If society is ashamed of what it is doing in the name of justice, then NOW certainly is a good time to stop!

Wow! What a day for the death lab! Mr. Kronborg was probably looking for better publicity, but as he should know by now “it ain’t over until it’s all over”, and Lundbeck’s dark killing days are far from over. Remember Lundbeck’s 22 dead patients and their families because Lundbeck does not have an ounce of humanity for them and that says something about their commitment to healthcare and human lives altogether!



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
