A spat between a drug manufacturer and states that use the death penalty could soon be impinging upon Washington residents’ right to die”

 

I recently wrote a piece for Real Change on the unintended consequences of European pharmaceutical companies attempts to thwart their drugs’ use in executions in the United States.
