Did you know that in the 1995/1996 Georgia (USA) legislative session, rep. Doug Teper introduced HB 1274 (House Bill) to offer the guillotine in the state executions as an alternative to the electric chair?
The interesting fact here is the motive of such a bill. Not to avoid undue suffering by the condemn mind you, but merely for a very practical reason: Organs harvesting after death as shown in section 1.
Needless to say, that bill died in GA senate and was never implemented. As of today, GA executes with lethal injection.


1- 8 The General Assembly finds that while prisoners condemned to
1- 9 death may wish to donate one or more of their organs for
1-10 transplant, any such desire is thwarted by the fact that
1-11 electrocution makes all such organs unsuitable for
1-12 transplant. The intent of the General Assembly in enacting
1-13 this legislation is to provide for a method of execution
1-14 which is compatible with the donation of organs by a
1-15 condemned prisoner.

1-22 (a) All persons who have been convicted of a capital
1-23 offense and have had imposed upon them a sentence of death
1-24 shall, at the election of the condemned, suffer such
1-25 punishment either by electrocution or by guillotine. If
1-26 the condemned fails to make an election by the thirtieth
1-27 day preceding the date scheduled for execution, punishment
1-28 shall be by electrocution.
