• Executions are medical procedures

    If executions aren't medically supervised, it can be reasonably claimed that the practice violates The Constitution's prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. If there aren't clinical procedures and processes in place, execution could vary wildly between prisons, and would be at the whim of people who run prisons (who might neither know nor care enough to do things properly).

  • Yes, to ensure the process is as humane as possible

    If executions are to be done at all, they should at least be done cleanly and efficiently. If the method is through a lethal injection, it makes sense to have a physical who will know where the needle should be placed to ensure the process goes smoothly and to minimize risk of failure.
