House bill seeks to end execution stalemeates [NC]

Posted over 3 years ago by Nicholas M Perrino

"In order to excuse doctors from participating in an execution, the bill would allow a physician assistant, nurse practitioner, registered nurse, emergency medical technician or paramedic to carry out some of the functions.

Rep. Gayle Adcock, D-Wake, said many of those professions had codes of ethics that prohibit participation in taking a life."
