Although Rosenberg said the company has consulted with departments of correction across the country, not one of them reached by ABC News would comment on Hospira's stance.

The American Society of Anesthesiologists similarly declined to comment on the use of Pentothal as an ingredient in lethal injections.

"We have the drug in reserve," said Michelle Lyons, of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, "and therefore have enough for the executions currently scheduled."
