Why don't they use the drugs and equipment at the Planned Parenthood offices the state shut down?

Gosling: But correction officials will not say where they bought the drugs, arguing that information must be kept secret to protect the safety of its new supplier.

Something tells me this supplier is based in a country we're not entirely buddy-buddy with.

There is some fine irony in anti-death penalty protestors sending death threats to death penalty drug providers though.

As long as we sometimes execute the innocent, the death penalty will be wrong. It's illogical to support death for murder, and the condone the killing of innocents (while the real murders might remain free).

I don't think anything that has to do with the government should be kept secret,  Transparency is essential to a free democratic country.

GDubDub: I wonder how that "keeping supplier secret" this is going to work when media gets lawyers in there with FoI lawsuits.

Backwards assholes will eventually learn that the rest of the world doesn't agree with dumbass worldviews where killing people is considered the job of the state.

cmb53208: I'm not necessarily opposed to the death penalty, but could Texas prosecutors actually go the extra mile and make sure the people they convict are actually guilty?It seems that Texass has a slight problem with putting innocent people on death row.

They can't waste time with real trials and evidence gathering...
There are more important things at stake:

Texas law does not specifically spell out whether officials can refuse to make the name of drug suppliers public, but Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott's office has on three occasions rejected arguments by the agency that disclosing that information would put the drug supply and manufacturers at risk.
Clark said the prison agency planned to ask Abbott to reconsider the issue.
"We asked him three times and he said 'no' three times, but we haven't yet asked him four times," Clark said. "We plan to ask at least a fourth time, and if necessary, a fifth, sixth, or seventh time. But not eight times, because our attorneys can't count that high."

Still don't understand why they don't just use helium. As a bonus it would make those last words so much funnier.
