New York Times: Unable to Obtain Drugs, Ohio Suspends Executions

October 19, 2015  With the suspension of executions in Ohio, the New Your Times has a report on the Ohio suspension of executions until at least 2017. Ohio now joins Oklahoma and Arkansas as states with at least a de facto moritorium.  The majority of the 50 states now either have already abolished the death penalty, have an official moratorium, like Oregon, or a de facto moritorium. Only seven states carried out an execution in 2014 and the 2015 total could be even fewer states participating.  Major difficulties finding the drugs needed for executions is the cause, which adds to the growing mountain of evidence against having a death penalty.
