Use of Products in Capital Punishment
Baxter is a healthcare company with a stated mission to save and sustain lives. For more than 85 years, we have offered products and therapies that advance patient care. To that end, Baxter has repeatedly expressed its longstanding opposition to the potential use of any of its products in lethal injection protocols for capital punishment, where such use is clearly outside of approved labeling and medical standards of care and directly conflicts with our corporate mission.
Our customer contracts prohibit the use, resale or distribution of our products for capital punishment, while helping to ensure our medically necessary products remain available to clinicians to save and sustain patient lives.
