Videos On AIDS


Jan 24, 2007

A 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 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. Not for the faint of heart; be prepared to cry for these children. (Edited version)

This is an outrage.

I want to go in and rescue these kids myself. How did we fail them? Why do we sit for this? They are so innocent. This can\'t go on another day. Where are the protestors? We need to do more than just cry for theses kids, we need to save them!
