Death Row Doctor: Why I Take Part in Executions | Op-Docs SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/4JLjF89hz34 : https://youtube.com/ashbgame : Can the vow that doctors take to “do no harm” permit taking part in capital punishment? This week, the New York Times Op-Docs brings you “Death Row Doctor,” about Dr. Carlo Musso and his assistance with executions in Georgia. Directed by Lauren Knapp, the film challenges us to answer the question of whether having a doctor in the execution chamber is a perversion of medicine … or a common-sense act of mercy.
