Amnesty International today has declared that the participation of doctors and nurses in lethal injection executions violates their ethical oaths.

This is the same entity that recently came down on the moral necessity of laws protecting abortion.

It is the depth of moral bankruptcy to declare that it is ethical for doctors to kill innocent babies and unethical for doctors to oversee the execution of criminals.

I would have a lot more respect for Amnesty if it had consistent rather than selective ethics.
