Guinea Pig Kids: How New York City is Using Children to Test Experimental AIDS Drugs
Michael’s Comments – Criminal Big Pharma uses Toxic Experimental Drugs on Babies and Children
A new BBC documentary (2004) exposes how the city of New York has been forcing HIV-positive children under its supervision to be used as human guinea pigs in tests for experimental AIDS drug trials. We speak with the filmmaker Jamie Doran and Vera Sharav of the Alliance for Human Research Protection. [includes rush transcript]
A new BBC documentary exposes how the city of New York has been forcing HIV positive children under its supervision to be used as human guinea pigs in tests for experimental AIDS drug trials.
All of the children in the program were under the legal guidance of the city’s child welfare department, the Administration for Children’s Services. Most live in foster care or independent homes run on behalf of the local authorities and almost all the children are believed to be African-American or Latino.
The BBC identified pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline as one of the companies that provided the experimental drugs for the tests. In an email to Democracy Now! GlaxoSmithKline stated “pharmaceutical companies are not directly involved in the recruitment, enrolment or participation of patients in such trials.” GSK went on to say “the FDA encourages studies in pediatric patients. Clinical trials involving children and orphans are therefore legal and not unusual.”
In the documentary, parents or guardians who refused to consent to the trials claim that children were removed by ACS and placed in foster families or children’s homes. Then, acting over their objections, ACS authorized the drug trials. We called the Administration for Children’s Services to respond to the allegations but they declined to join us on the program but did send us a written statement.
GUINEA PIG KIDS – A BBC documentary exposes how the city of New York has forced “HIV” positive children under its supervision to be used as human guinea pigs in tests for experimental Antiretroviral drug trials.
Response to this video by the soulless Disease Machine trolls was furious.
Scienceblogs.com is a leading American Disease machine propaganda website…
…and of course Wikipedia is practically staffed by Disease Machine trolls…
Incarnation Children’s Center (ICC) is a nursing facility for children living with HIV in New York City. From 1989 until 2000 the center operated as a foster care boarding home; since then it has concentrated on providing medical care. The ICC is a non-profit corporation affiliated with the Archdiocese of New York and Columbia University. From the late 1980s through 2005, foster children at the Center with HIV/AIDS were enrolled on clinical trials of antiretroviral medication, which was successful in reducing the death rate from AIDS. In 2005, the Center was the focus of “Guinea Pig Kids”, a BBC documentary alleging ethical violations in these clinical trials. The allegations prompted an investigation by the Vera Project, which concluded that no children had died as a result of the trials, but that the Center had kept poor records and sometimes failed to follow its own enrollment policies. Subsequently, the BBC apologized for “very serious issues” in “Guinea Pig Kids”, and conceded that the documentary made misleading allegations and was biased toward the views of AIDS denialists.
Michael’s comments – Notice the “AIDS Denialists” label above. This is a label given to any critical thinker that questions the HIV = AIDS dogma. It is classic Disease Machine ad Hominem designed to discredit and belittle anyone who dares challenge the Ministry of Health.
To my knowledge no one denies AIDS exists so the title is blatantly false in the first place but the number of doctors, scientists, researchers and Nobel Prize winning folks who question the HIV = AIDS hypothesis are numerous numbering into the thousands.
The story of HIV = AIDS is even more scandalous than the official polio and cancer narratives.
