Am I missing something?

Good article about the campaign to get rid of lethal injection in the US.

Why do medical people call euthanasia / assisted suicide (for consenting adults, often in great pain) unethical, but are willing to kill prisoners?  Where’s the Hippocratic Oath there?  Or are some lives worth less than others?  My favourite quote from the article;

“The report also challenges the cocktail of three drugs commonly used in executions.
It says that Texas, the biggest US user of lethal injections, has banned the same drugs for dogs and cats on the grounds of the potential pain they may suffer.”

Ni-iiice!
