Death plenty delayed
Condemned killer Michael Morales is causing a legal quandary in California after two anesthesiologists in a row have refused to observe over the procedure. They have stated that -
The anesthesiologists issued a statement through the prison saying they were concerned they would be forced to intervene in the execution if Morales woke up or appeared to be in pain.
Any such intervention would clearly be medically unethical, said the doctors, who have not been identified. As a result, we have withdrawn from participation in this current process.
