Guinea Pig Kids

The federal Department of Health and Human Services just issued a scathing letter to Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center about New City's worst-kept secret -- that the hospital, in cooperation the Catholic church and government agencies, had a local version of the Tuskegee Experiment going for years. Only this time, instead of black men and syphillis, it was foster kids and experimental AIDS drugs. The foster kids, some as young as three months, "volunteered" to test experimental AIDS cocktails for pain, toxicity and side effects. Of course, the foster kids' parents weren't asked for permission to subject their children to these chilling experiments. They lost custody of their kids to the government, because the parents might have, you know, mistreated their offspring. All together now... it's for the children.
