 Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 7.18.18

Our German Advisory Board member Ursula Malchau wrote to the German pharmaceutical company Merck in reference to what appears to have been an illegal shipment of a drug containing pentobarbital to Texas for an upcoming execution. Pointing to their statement on their website that they are in the business of saving and improving lives she requests that Merck follow the example of Alvogen which stopped an execution by filing a lawsuit to stop the use of their drug for an execution. We thank Ursula for her being the other Voice!

We posted a detailed explanation by the Death Penalty Information Center of the issues surrounding the new execution option and encourage you to read it.

Today we welcomed a guest all the way from New York at our meeting. Of course it was by phone as this is how Esther is able to participate. There were some interesting exchanges on both sides and our guest was impressed how current our Board is on a variety of topics.

See you next week!
