How Should Christians Think About Lethal Injection? Christian Ethicists 

Christian leaders are weighing in on Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s recent comments about the death penalty, particularly lethal injection, which she suggests may be “our most cruel experiment yet.”

Breyer, the High Court’s first-ever Hispanic judge dissented from the court’s decision not to hear the case of Alabama’s oldest inmate, Thomas Douglas Arthur, who in 1982 murdered his girlfriend’s husband. The Supreme Court had recently moved to delay his execution while they deliberated hearing his case. Arthur’s particular objection was to the use of the drug midazolam used in lethal injections due to the physical pain and suffering it can cause.
