That's not necessarily true. She is hesitant to kill because she has never done it. After she kills her first couple of attackers, she comments on how it was so easy it was scary. She never says she has a problem with violence against humans. Just because she has a visceral reaction to her first kill, doesn't mean she is morally against it.
Her execution kills come much later in the game as they are unlocked. It's actually right in step with the character progression as she is pushed further and further by her assailants.
