Pharmacists and Lethal Injection

In March 2015, the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) adopted a policy stating that it “discourages pharmacist participation in executions on the basis that such activities are fundamentally contrary to the role of pharmacists as providers of health care.” Are there similarly relevant policies that engineering professional societies could (or should?) adopt to maintain ethical consistency between their members’ roles in societies and daily activities?
