Drug Used to Execute Georgia Woman is the Drug Used for Doctor-Prescribed Suicide

Perhaps you have heard about the execution within the past week of Kelly Renee Gissendaner, who had been the only woman on death row in Georgia.

Did you know that the drug she received – pentobarbital – is one of the drugs commonly used in doctor-assisted suicides?

Does this seem like a “legitimate medical treatment” to you?

Does it sound like “death with dignity” to you?
