A que interessa o aborto no Brasil e a deslavada má fé de quem acompanha os fins espúrios de um governo que usa da ilegalidade há 10 anos – parte 1

 

No Brasil, a “legalização” do aborto ocorrerá por negligência, no mínimo, e não por falta de recursos jurídicos para impedi-la, pois estes recursos não estão sendo usados intencionalmente.

 

Pergunta: o que é mesmo que o ufanismo “leigo” (?!!) comemorativo da direção de “Brasil sem aborto” estava considerando “mérito” ver como “atrasado” no julgamento da ADPF 54?

Escrevi esta mensagem antes do falecimento do Min. M. Direito, o que sabia-se estava para ocorrer devido ao seu estado de saúde. Aliás, Lula, qdo escolheu aquele Min., sabia que ele tinha pouco tempo de vida. Outro, Eros Grau vai ser aposentado pela idade.

 
Os mais cotados para preenchimento destas vagas são o ex-procurador-geral da República, Antonio Fernando de Souza, o presidente do Superior Tribunal de Justiça, Cesar Asfor Rocha, e o advogado-geral da União, José Antônio Dias Toffoli (referido por mim na mensagem e preferido de lula).

 

 

Já houve mais uma decisão judicial de primeira instância no MS autorizando aborto de anencéfalo entre o dia 29 e hoje.
Pergunta: o que é mesmo que o ufanismo “leigo” (?!!) comemorativo da direção de “Brasil sem aborto” estava considerando “mérito” ver como “atrasado” no julgamento da ADPF 54?

 
Para legalizar o aborto no Brasil, o mais importante continua sendo a conduta “pró-vida” midiática desta ONG, que ainda se “surpreende” quando o Governo Federal retira-lhe recursos à última hora, deixando claro que teria sido “induzido a erro”.

 

Esta retirada de recursos com viés desmoralizador bem sucedido não era uma possibilidade e sim uma certeza.
Por que a Lenise se surpreendeu?

 

Por terem cometido um erro? Por achar que a “legalização” do aborto está dentro de um contexto “democrático” deste governicho?

 
Vão pedir ajuda cientifíca no exterior com o meio que trabalha conosco há bem mais de uma década e acham que isto não seria objeto de conhecimento e avaliação?

 

Caiu muito mal neste meio a maneira como esta ajuda foi solicitada, porque não passou despercebido a pessoas com larga experiência o que ela representava de fato.
Há vida inteligente dentro de “Brasil Sem Aborto” ou sim outros interesses inteligentes voltados para interesses pessoais de alguns?

 

 

O terceiro ano de existência de BSA [Brasil sem aborto] deve ser comemorativo de uma cooperação impar de bastidores e por omissões com tudo aquilo que é decisivo para o objetivo dos abortistas.

Resposta à mensagem que festeja o terceiro ano de Brasil Sem Aborto.

O PL 1135/91 sempre foi uma manobra diversionista muito bem usada pelos abortistas e melhor ainda digerida por muitos dos que se consideram pró-vida.

 
Objetivo: desviar as atenções dos erros sistemáticos do meio pró-vida que continuam sendo cometidos na via onde o aborto será “legalizado” no Brasil – dentro do Poder Judiciário, no STF.

 
Não se comunique aqui que os Ministros do STF estão sendo suscetíveis a influências pró-vida porque isto não é verdade, pelo contrário, este “tempo ganho” está servindo é para que seja posta em prática uma estratégia no Judiciário de “consolidação de bases”, onde se verifica que as primeiras e segundas instâncias do Judiciário Nacional passam a dar suporte ao STF com cada vez mais decisões em suas respectivas esferas autorizando aborto de anencéfalos.

 
Neste cenário de “ganho de tempo” festejado o que ocorre é que as decisões de juízes de primeira instância contra o aborto de anencéfalos, quando ocorrem, passam a ser objeto de reforma em segunda instância, como é fato sabido no meio judicial e que tem como último precedente decisão de Desembargador do TJRS mandando juíza de primeira instância autorizar aborto de anencéfalo que ela tinha negado. Isto passa despercebido para leigos em seu significado, mas não se pode admitir que eu esteja me dirigindo a leigos por mais de três anos.

 

A situação, ao contrário do que a mensagem pretende comunicar, não melhorou. Ela piorou e muito para a defesa da vida desde a concepção. Esqueceram o parecer decisivo do Ministério Público Federal favorável ao aborto de anencéfalos na ADPF 54 apresentado ao STF? Está quase tudo bem?

 

Enquanto isso, a presidência de Brasil Sem Aborto está procurando “apoio científico” no exterior (com emails em espanhol redigidos por terceiros, e sequer no idioma de seus destinatários) e continua, tanto “esquecendo” que o apoio científico de mesmo nível está dentro do Brasil, quanto o fato de que sem defesa jurídica à altura da situação que é essencialmente jurídica, de nada adiantará este suporte científico, pois lhe faltara na melhor das hipóteses o manejo jurídico que se faz imperativo dentro de um processo jurídico, perante um órgão jurisdicional. Está quase tudo bem pensar que o STF é um “laboratório científico” ou meio “acadêmico científico”?

 

Está quase tudo bem dar tempo para que mais um Ministro do STF possa ser nomeado por Lula, possivelmente seu cargo de confiança ex-dirigente da AGU?

 

No âmbito das audiências públicas da ADPF 54, a partir de setembro de 2008, houve sabotagem de uma defesa jurídica em precioso espaço de 15 minutos amplamente utilizado por assessora de confiança da Secretaria Especial de Nilcéia Freire (que já tínhamos deixado sem argumentos em programa de TV do STF), que estava acertada que seria feita por mim, mesmo que para ser lida por terceiros, onde as questões jurídicas que vão decidir este assunto seriam apontadas de forma mais clara do que realmente deseja o Brasil Sem Aborto, como, por exemplo, deixar claro ao STF sem meias palavras que, nos assuntos que gravitam no âmbito da Convenção Interamericana de Direitos Humanos, ele, STF, ao contrário do que foi dito por Ayres Britto, não é o órgão jurisdicional que tem a última palavra, mas sim a Corte Internacional de Direitos Humanos.

 
O que aconteceu? Houve simples renúncia deste espaço de defesa em audiência pública no ano de 2008, sem meu conhecimento prévio, sob a falsa alegação perante o Ministro Marco Aurélio de que não havia quem o fizesse. Está quase tudo bem mesmo?

 

Este clima de “muito a comemorar”, especialmente depois do extraordinário fiasco jurídico no julgamento das células tronco embrionárias dentro do STF, que representou a definição da realidade do que está em andamento e não foi alterada pela sucessão dos acontecimentos; quando, então, sequer houve fundamentação tempestiva da defesa da vida na Convenção Americana de Direitos Humanos, não corresponde aos fatos que se apresentam e que levam à legalização do aborto no Brasil dentro via STF. Este clima de ufanismo deslocado somente pode aumentar a retirada de foco de um grave problema tal qual como ele realmente está definido. Promove a aparência fatal do “faz de conta que estamos fazendo” o que os fatos exigem que seja feito.

 

 

Não está quase tudo bem e certamente não haverá tempo para o “muito que tem por ser feito” a não ser que a referência seja sobre correr atrás do prejuízo, como ocorre em outros países, para tentar revogar a “legalização” do aborto neste país.

 
A quais interesses esta sistematização de conduta comemorativa e ufanista beneficia?

 

Não são os que se opõem com realismo ao desrespeito à defesa da vida desde a concepção tal qual ordenamento jurídico algum noutros países está hoje proporcionando ao Brasil.

 

No Brasil, a “legalização” do aborto ocorrerá por negligência, no mínimo, e não por falta de recursos jurídicos para impedi-la, pois estes recursos não estão sendo usados intencionalmente.

The Wholesalers of aborted babies

 

Os atacadistas de bebês abortados

 

A brochura, brilhante, convida para fazer aborto e “descobrir como você pode transformar a sua decisão de paciente em algo maravilhoso.” Está impresso por linhas de abertura, uma divisão da Consultivo e Patologia de diagnóstico, onde uma traficante de atacado em partes do bebê abortado a partir de clínicas americanas, oferece o retorno financeiro á mulher que aborta e entrega o bebê abortado ao comercio. Os tecidos e partes de fetos abortados têm alto valor como matéria-prima das industrias de cosméticos, plásticas e biotecnologia de fármacos e alimentos.

 

Neste texto, foi relatado que, fora de um escritório em West Frankfort, IL, diretor da empresa, Dr. Miles Jones, OS LUCROS de um COMÉRCIO, evidentemente, tremendamente vantajoso – a “Taxa de Serviços Schedule” atual oferece olhos e ouvidos por US $ 75 a US $ 999 por um cérebro.

Cristiane Rozicki

***

NOTA: As linhas de abertura está associada a “Ass. presents anatômica”, uma corporação sem fins lucrativos, que aceita doações de órgãos e tem escritórios em vários estados.

 

Linhas de abertura foi fundada em 1989, para “maximizar a utilização de tecido fetal fresco que nós processar.” Ele oferece aos investigadores “da mais alta qualidade, mais acessível, mais fresco e tecido preparado com suas especificações e entregues nas quantidades que você precisa quando você precisar dele.”

 

Venda de tecidos humanos, incluindo o tecido fetal, é contra a lei federal, mas as linhas de abertura aconselha os pacientes como “simples” é para contornar isso. Ele oferece a “alugar o espaço a partir de sua instalação para realizar a colheita, para compensar a sobrecarga a sua clínica.” Ele também oferece para treinar a equipe da clínica na colheita e, em seguida, “com base em volume, reembolsar parte ou a totalidade do salário do seu empregado, reduzindo suas despesas gerais. ”

 

Dr. Jones é, obviamente, hábil em contornar os regulamentos inconvenientes. “Nós não exigem uma cópia de sua aprovação IRB ou resumo de sua pesquisa”, aconselha clientela em potencial, “e você não é obrigado a linhas de abertura do site como fonte de tecido quando você publicar seu trabalho (acreditamos no boca a boca publicidade, se você gosta de nosso serviço que você vai dizer a seus colegas “).

 

Linhas de abertura é um dos dois traficantes no atacado, descoberto por Mark Crutcher na vida Dynamics Inc., uma pró-vida em Denton Texas. A outra é a Anatomic Presente Foundation (AGF). Fundada em 1994 por Jim e Bardsley Brenda, que inicialmente funcionava em um trailer de largura dupla no final de uma estrada de terra no Rio Satilla na Geórgia, onde o casal também administrou uma fazenda bagre. Desde então, mudou sua sede para Laurel, MD e possui operações em Phoenix, AZ e Aurora, CO

 

Fontes dinâmica da vida dentro de clínicas de aborto adquiridos “tabelas de preços” para ambas as organizações. Abertura de linhas ‘é a mais detalhada dos dois, enumerando preços para órgãos de fetos sob oito semanas de gestação e de novo. Um “tronco intacto (com / sem membros)” custa US $ 500, por exemplo, um fígado, US $ 150, (“30% de desconto se significativamente fragmentada”).

 

“Os preços em vigor até 31 de dezembro de 1999” pode parecer baixo, observa o Sr. Crutcher, mas somar todas as peças e bebê abortado único vale milhares. “Nosso volume de caso médio diário certificado exceder 1500 e servimos clínicas nos Estados Unidos”, diz o folheto linhas de abertura “.

 

Sr. Crutcher diz que Dr. Jones é um vendedor agressivo, ansioso para lhe oferecer taxas reduzidas para grandes encomendas.

 

Ele também disse em uma recente entrevista gravada que ele está buscando ativamente fontes de tecido fetal no México e no Canadá.

The Wholesalers of aborted babies

http://suewidemark.com/fetalparts.htm

by Celeste McGovern

 

A full-colour, glossy brochure invites abortionists to “find out how you can turn your patient’s decision into something wonderful.” It’s printed by Opening Lines, A Division of Consultative and Diagnostic Pathology, Inc., a wholesale trafficker in aborted baby parts from American clinics. Out of an office in West Frankfort, IL, the company’s director, Dr. Miles Jones, profits from an evidently tremendously lucrative trade – his current “Fee for Services Schedule” offers eyes and ears for $75 to $999 for a brain.

NOTE: Opening Lines is associated with “Anatomical Gifts Assn”, a non profit corporation which accepts organ donations and has offices in several states.

Opening Lines was founded in 1989 to “maximize the utilization of fresh fetal tissue we process.” It offer researchers “the highest quality, most affordable, and freshest tissue prepared to your specifications and delivered in the quantities you need when you need it.”

Sale of human tissue, including fetal tissue, is against federal law, but Opening Lines advises patients how “simple” it is to get around that. It offers to “lease space from your facility to perform the harvesting to offset your clinic’s overhead.” It also offers to train clinic staff in harvesting and then “based on volume, reimburse part or all of your employee’s salary, thereby reducing your overhead.”

Dr. Jones is obviously adept at getting around inconvenient regulations. “We DO NOT require a copy of your IRB approval or summary of your research,” he advises prospective clientele, “and you ARE NOT required to site Opening Lines as the source of tissue when you publish your work (we believe in word of mouth advertising; if you like our service you will tell your colleagues.”)

Opening Lines is one of two wholesale traffickers, uncovered by Mark Crutcher at Life Dynamics Inc. a pro-life in Denton Texas. The other is the Anatomic Gift Foundation (AGF). Founded in 1994 by Jim and Brenda Bardsley, it originally operated out of a double-wide trailer at the end of a dirt road on the Satilla River in Georgia where the couple also ran a catfish farm. It has since moved its headquarters to Laurel, MD and now has operations in Phoenix, AZ and Aurora, CO.

Life Dynamics’ sources inside abortion clinics acquired “fee schedules” for both organizations. Opening Lines’ is the more detailed of the two, listing prices for organs from fetuses under eight weeks gestation and over. An “intact trunk (with/without limbs)” costs $500, for example, a liver, $150, (“30% discount if significantly fragmented”).

The prices “in effect until December 31, 1999” may seem low, observes Mr. Crutcher, but add up all the parts and single aborted baby is worth thousands. “Our daily average case volume exceeds 1500 and we serve clinics across the United States,” says Opening Lines’ brochure.

Mr. Crutcher says that Dr. Jones is an aggressive salesman, eager to offer him reduced rates for bulk orders.

He also said in a recent taped interview that he is actively pursuing fetal tissue sources in Mexico and in Canada.

Ministro de Justiça reconhece e defende o direito de viver dos embriões.

 

Ministro de Justiça reconhece e defende o direito de viver dos embriões.  

Ministro Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón diz aos Deputados na Espanha “o mais progresista que tenho feito é defender o direito aa vida” e “muitas mulheres vêm violentado seu Direito ‘a ser mãe por Pressoes que     determinadas estruturas geram ao seu redor.”

Felicita al ministro de Justicia por defender el derecho a vivir

 

A Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón los abortistas le están llamando de todo por haber defendido en sede parlamentaria que el aborto no es un derecho y que el embrión también tiene derechos.

REDACCIÓN HO.- Los abortistas políticos y mediáticos están histéricos desde que el ministro de Justicia, Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón, dijera en el Congreso de los Diputados y a través de algunos medios que “lo más progresista que he hecho en mi vida política es defender el derecho a la vida” y que “muchas mujeres ven violentado su derecho a ser madres por la presión que genera a su alrededor determinadas estructuras“.

Los partidos políticos abortistas le llaman “retrógrado”, le acusan de querer encarcelar a las mujeres y dicen de él que quiere suspender sus derechos. Hasta los etarras de Amaiur han tenido la desfachatez de hablar de violencia, acusándole de “desconocer la violencia de género”.

¿Cuál ha sido el “delito” de Ruiz-Gallardón? El ministro de Justicia no ha hecho más que decir en el Congreso de los Diputados lo que tantos llevamos años proclamando: que la vida es un derecho y el aborto no, que la maternidad debe ser protegida y el extermino de seres humanos no.

Derecho a Vivir, que ultima los detalles del lanzamiento de la campaña Aborto Cero, quiere felicitar al ministro de Justicia y animarle a convertir sus declaraciones en ley.

La plataforma en defensa de la vida de HazteOir.org señala que seguirá vigilante los próximos pasos del Gobierno en relación con el aborto y llevará su movilización hasta donde sea necesario para conseguir en España el objetivo final de Aborto Cero.

Pero DAV quiere también celebrar los triunfos que va consiguiendo en ese camino y por ello anima a la ciudadanía a felicitar a Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón por sus declaraciones y por el compromiso que ha adquirido ante la sede de la soberanía nacional.

‘No nos resignamos’: Los ciudadanos europeos, en pie por la cultura de la vida

Enquanto a Europa luta pelo fim do aborto livre e sem restriçoes em lei, sem pena criminal, o Brasil suporta o governo Lula-PT-Dilma investir na ilegalidade para transformar o país em fornecedor de matéria-prima humana fresca, congelada e usada nas farmacias e alimentos.

‘No nos resignamos’: Los ciudadanos europeos, en pie por la cultura de la vida

 

La  European Meeting for Life, imagen de la unión de los europeos en defensa de la Vida, ha sido presentada en la Eurocámara por Mayor Oreja. Histórica sesión en la que tuvimos voz como destacado movimiento cívico provida, y que marca hitos para una cultura de la vida en Europa, comenzando con una ILP en defensa del primer derecho humano.

REDACCIÓN HO.- El vicepresidente del Grupo Popular Europeo y eurodiputado del PP Jaime Mayor Oreja presentaba en la tarde de ayer jueves en el Parlamento Europeo la iniciativa ciudadana europea ‘No nos resignamos. En defensa de los no nacidos’, para comenzar a recoger firmas de ciudadanos europeos en contra del aborto y a favor del derecho a la vida en la UE.  La iniciativa se presentó dentro de una reunión también histórica en Bruselas, la ‘European Meeting for Life.’ Mayor Oreja destacaba hoy, precisamente el carácter inédito de la reunión, entrevistado en Así son las Mañanas de la COPE:  

“Lo que tenemos, ya por lo pronto, es una reunión inédita, jamás celebrada en la historia de la Eurocámara, en la cual, durante unas tres horas, los colectivos en defensa de la vida más representativos de toda Europa, una treintena, han hecho una radiografía de lo que sucede, nos han ofrecido un brillante diagnóstico conjunto de la situación analizando lo que ocurre en los distintos países, y con esa misma unidad han propuesto soluciones conjuntas para trabajar, todos juntos, en una nueva cultura de la vida. Se marca un camino unitario en este sentido.  Dentro de ello, se trabajará  en una Iniciativa Legislativa Popular para recoger más de un millón de firmas ciudadanas, en lo que nos emplearemos a fondo, sobre todo por parte del comité organizador que vamos a crear”.

Carlota Ruiz de Dulanto, en la sesiónReconociendo su labor y carácter representativo, HO y Derecho a Vivir formaron parte de esa treintena de asociaciones en defensa del derecho a vivir invitadas que tuvieron voz en Europa.  En Bruselas estuvimos representados por Carlota Ruiz de Dulanto, que tomó voz ante los europarlamentarios en nombre de DAV para defender que la única tasa de aborto admisible para una Europa moderna, que piensa en el futuro es el “Aborto Cero“, concepto que da nombre a la última campaña de divulgación y opinión pública impulsada por Derecho a Vivir. Proporcionamos el texto de la intervención íntegra de Carlota en Bruselas (en inglés), así como una breve biografía (en inglés) y la presentación visual con que acompañó sus palabras.

DAV y VI WCF: defendemos los valoresRuiz de Dulanto aprovechó también para hacer extensiva a todos los presentes la invitación a participar en el VI Congreso Mundial de Familias, que  este año HO tiene el honor de organizar (Madrid, 25-27 de mayo), que atraerá a casi 3000 personas, y reunirá a los más importantes líderes mundiales provida y profamilia.

La sesión reflejó un diagnóstico común, todos los movimientos cívicos de los distintos países compartimos la misma inquietud: la cultura de la muerte  no puede seguir avanzando,  ¡No nos podemos rendir !  La iniciativa de este encuentro se erige como el principio del final de esta mentalidad homicida que se ha instalado en nuestra civilización.

Jaime Mayor Oreja, con CarlotaLas líneas de acción básicas definidas al final de esta sesión de casi cinco horas han sido las siguientes: 

 1) Promover, de acuerdo con el Tratado de Lisboa y  la Carta Europea de los Derechos Fundamentales, una Iniciativa Legislativa Popular (ILP) contra la financiación directa o indirecta  de cualquier tipo de cultura de la muerte en Europa. El nuevo Tratado de Lisboa autoriza a los ciudadanos de la UE a reclamar a la Comisión Europea que presente propuestas legislativas de su interés si reúnen un millón de firmas de ciudadanos de varios Estados miembros. Las iniciativas ciudadanas europeas, que deben limitarse a los ámbitos en los que la Comisión está facultada para proponer legislación como la agricultura, el medio ambiente, los transportes o la salud pública, podrán comenzar a presentarse desde este 1 de abril, cuando entra en vigor la normativa que las desarrolla.

Si la iniciativa ciudadana europea pidiera abiertamente promover la prohibición del aborto en la UE tiene pocos visos de prosperar, dado que la Comisión Europea no tiene competencias para legislar sobre esta cuestión, según han reconocido fuentes del Ejecutivo comunitario: “Hay Estados miembros que lo autorizan, hay Estados miembros que no lo autorizan. Esto es una competencia nacional”.

2) Institucionalizar el ‘European Meeting for Life ‘ con al menos una celebración anual, en Bruselas , donde las asociaciones provida podamos dar el diagnóstico de cada uno de nuestros países .

3) Reforzar el ‘networking’ entre todas las instituciones provida de Europa y compartir y trasladar nuestras iniciativas al propio Mayor Oreja, que se compromete a enviar un diputado parlamentario, como representante de la institución, a cada evento provida que se promueva en Europa.

4) Fomentar la unidad: Sumar esfuerzos, crear un eslogan común, evidenciarnos como una corriente unida y fuerte que lucha contra una sociedad acomodada que se está dejando destruir por la violación de los derechos fundamentales.

Mayor y eurodiputadosMayor Oreja asume el liderazgo del apoyo europarlamentario a esta iniciativa cívicajunto al eurodiputado italiano ‘popular’  Carlo Casini, que también es presidente de la Comisión de Asuntos Constitucionales de la Eurocámara; ambos promovieron la histórica sesión de ayer jueves, invitando a más de 30 organizaciones y asociaciones de defensa de la familia y la vida de Austria, Bélgica, República Checa, Dinamarca, Alemania, Estonia, Francia, Hungría, Irlanda, Italia, Lituania, Malta, Polonia, Portugal, Rumanía, Eslovaquia, Reino Unido, Suecia, Países Bajos, Rumanía y España, incluidos HO y Derecho a Vivir, el Instituto de Política Familiar, Crossroads, Foro español o la Fundación Madrina, con el objetivo de comenzar a recabar apoyos y firmas para su iniciativa.

La iniciativa ya ha recabado además el respaldo de otros eurodiputados, incluidos el también vicepresidente polaco del Grupo Popular Europeo, Jan Olbrycht, el italiano Mario Mauro, así como los eurodiputados eslovacos Miroslav Mikolasik y Anna Zaborska; el húngaro Laszlo Surjan, el esloveno Alojz Peterle; los alemanes Martin Kasler, Peter Liese y Bernd Posselt, el tory británico Nirj Deva y el polaco Konrad Szymanski.

El aborto genera en España un negocio de 100 millones€ en diez años

O aborto na España gera um negócio de 100 milhões de Euros em dez anos de milhões de mortes. A interrupção voluntaria da gravidez, o aborto, chega a 70 e 90 por cento das gestantes.

El aborto genera en España un negocio de 100 millones€ en diez años

En Andalucía, la tercera comunidad de España con mayor número de abortos, unos 20 mil cada año, crece más rápidamente que a nivel nacional.

REDACCIÓN HO / ABC.ES.-  Las estadísticas que hace públicas cada año el Servicio Andaluz de Salud (SAS) sobre el aborto son siempre conocidas. Las cifras apenas cambian y cada año se practican en la comunidad autónoma unos veinte mil abortos, una cantidad que apenas oscila. Ni las políticas de prevención de embarazos ni tampoco la píldora del día después -como señalaban los defensores de su liberalización, que además tratan de negar sus efectos abortivos-, han provocado una disminución de abortos quirúgicos.

Sin embargo hay otros datos menos conocidos, como los del negocio que se mueve alrededor de las mal llamadas Interrupciones Voluntarias del Embarazo (IVE). Según un informe realizado por un grupo de profesores católicos de la Universidad de Córdoba, del que informa el diario ABC, en el periodo comprendido entre 1999 y 2008 el aborto ha supuesto en Andalucía un negocio que ha facturado entre 82.294.104 y 102.832.832 euros. Además, los profesores consideran que, en términos absolutos, los ingresos estimados para el último año del que tienen datos, 2008, oscilaría entre 9.323.211 y 13.041.550 euros.

En el estudio, que ha tenido en cuenta los precios de licitación pública de estas intervenciones, la estimación de gastos asociados (desplazamientos y manutención de los pacientes y acompañantes) así como otros informes, los investigadores han fijado una horquilla de precios que oscila entre 350 y 450 euros. Concretamente, los investigadores sitúan el precio de un aborto de hasta 12 semanas de gestación en esas cantidades aunque aseguran que hay algunas comunidades donde es más caro y esta intervención puede costar hasta 600 euros.

Claro que los precios suben a medida que aumentan las semanas de gestación, dada la complejidad de la operación. En este sentido, cuando el embarazo pasa de las 12 semanas, el precio del aborto puede estar entre 1.500 y 2.500 euros. De igual manera, en otras comunidades españolas estas intervenciones pueden alcanzar los 3.000 euros.

En cualquier caso el aborto en Andalucía representa en torno al 18 por ciento del total nacional. La tasa anual acumulativa de crecimiento para España se sitúa en el 7,9 por ciento, por debajo de la tasa de crecimiento para Andalucía, estimada en el 9,18 por ciento. Eso supone que el aborto en Andalucía crece más rápidamente que a nivel nacional, consecuencia posiblemente de las facilidades otorgadas por la administración pública a las mujeres para que encuentren en el aborto la salida a su embarazo no deseado o en situación de dificultad.

En relación con otras comunidades autónomas, Andalucía se encuentra situada en el top del aborto en España. A nivel nacional se encuentra en el quinto lugar (con un 0,25 de abortos sobre la población total) por detrás de Murcia (0,38), Madrid (0,35), Cataluña (0,34) y Baleares (0,32). Considerando el peso relativo de los abortos perpetrados en cada comunidad sobre el total de abortos en todo el país, se extrae la conclusión de que Andalucía es la tercera de España en número de abortos.

Algo que lógicamente tiene sus consecuencias económicas, lo que lleva a los profesores a afirmar que «una parte significativa del negocio del aborto se concentra en Andalucía».

Los expertos también han valorado el hecho de que Andalucía es la única comunidad autónoma que reconoce la prestación del aborto dentro de su sistema sanitario y garantiza el acceso a la misma a través del concierto con las clínicas acreditadas ante la mayoritaria objeción de losprofesionales de la sanidad pública. Además, Andalucía es la tercera región española con mayor peso económico en el negocio del aborto en España.

 

Casi la mitad en Sevilla y Málaga

Las cifras también revelan que casi la mitad de los abortos en Andalucía en el periodo entre 1999 y 2008, el 45 por ciento y hasta el 48 por ciento en 2008, se realizaron a mujeres residentes en Sevilla y Málaga. Son las provincias que, junto a Granada y Almería, concentran más del 70 por ciento de las interrupciones voluntarias del embarazo.

Llama la atención la escasa incidencia en la provincia de Jaén, que escasamente alcanza el 4 por ciento el año 2008. Además también es digno de destacar que la mayoría de los abortos, el 91 por ciento, se produce antes de las doce primeras semanas de vida, mientras que el 9 por ciento aproximadamente corresponde a abortos practicados a partir de la primera semana. Este dato tiene repercusiones evidentes, dada la diferencia en el tipo de asistencia para cada caso. Entre los centros acreditados concertados son dos en Sevilla los que realizan estas intervenciones a mujeres de más de doce semanas.

Projeto do Novo Código Penal: aborto, desinformação e impedimentos legislativos

“1) Tem GRAVES INCONSTITUCIONALIDADES e não se tem suscitado este assunto como necessário.

Projeto do Novo Código Penal: aborto, desinformação e impedimentos legislativos

09/05/2012 — Celso Galli Coimbra

 

Por Celso Galli Coimbra

 

Em 09 de março de 2012, foi publicada a notícia de que a Comissão de Juristas nomeada pelo Senado para elaborar o anteprojeto de lei do novo Código Penal estaria ampliando as regras para o aborto legal.  Se formos examinar o conteúdo desta suposta “ampliação” veremos que é mais uma pegadinha jurídica em torno desta questão, pois o que está de fato sendo proposto é a total liberação do aborto [1].

 

É  induzir a erro a sociedade brasileira dizer que existe mera “ampliação” das hipóteses de aborto, mas que ele “continua sendo crime”, pois o texto em que está exarada confere norma em branco à administração da subjetividade de profissionais da medicina e da psicologia para autorizar o amplo abortamento, quando preceitua que abortar é possível sem punibilidade  “Por vontade da gestante até a 12ª semana de gravidez, se o médico ou o psicólogo atestar que a mulher não apresenta condições de arcar com a maternidade”

 

Se qualquer médico ou psicólogo puder atestar que a mulher pode abortar até a 12a. semana de gravidez por não ter “condições de arcar com a maternidade”, então o aborto pode ser objeto de mera concessão em aberto de médicos e psicólogos e ainda sob o indefinido pretexto de “não poder arcar com a maternidade”.  Para resumir o assunto: é suficiente uma mulher dizer para médico ou psicólogo que não quer continuar a gestação, que isto pode, sem dúvida alguma, ser aceito como “falta de condições para arcar com a maternidade”.

 

Porém, antes deste estratagema, é notória a falta de competência legislativa para o Congresso Nacional aprovar a alteração do momento de proteção ao início da vida humana estabelecido no momento da concepção ou sequer exceções ao mesmo, que por disposição constitucional – a seguir demonstrada – sequer por Emenda Constitucional pode ser objeto de tramitação no Poder Legislativo. Um Código Penal é apenas legislação ordinária federal.

 

LEI COM CONTEÚDO ABORTISTA SEQUER PODE TER TRAMITAÇÃO NO LEGISLATIVO ou LEI INCONSTITUCIONAL É DIFERENTE DE TRAMITAÇÃO INCONSTITUCIONAL

 

Dizer que uma lei é inconstitucional é diferente de dizer que a tramitação de projetos de lei que têm por objeto a alteração do momento de proteção à vida humana, ou abertura de exceções ao mesmo, não podem ter andamento para votação pelos parlamentares.

 

Uma lei pode ser inconstitucional e mesmo assim pode ter andamento nas casas legislativas, seguida da sanção dos Executivos e entrar em vigor no Brasil, de tal forma que sua inconstitucionalidade somente possa vir a ser declarada para todos ou para alguns mediante ação judicial própria.

 

Ao contrário, quando o valor maior protegido pela Constituição é de caráter pétreo por dizer respeito a tratados de direitos humanos firmados pelo Brasil e que seguiram a ratificação interna e formal prevista na época dentro do país, SEQUER a tramitação de Emendas Constitucionais – que já é o exercício de Poder Constituinte derivado – são permitidas na vigência da atual Constituição.

 

Isto é assim determinado para não haver risco de uma lei inconstitucional – que altere o momento de proteção da vida humana – possa entrar em vigor para ter – e somente depois deste momento – a sua inconstitucionalidade levada a julgamento.

 

Nestes casos especiais, o legislador constitucional impede, então, é a própria tramitação no Congresso Nacional.

 

Esta diferença vital entre lei inconstitucional e projeto de lei cuja a tramitação legislativa está proibida passa normalmente despercebida. No último caso, em situações excepcionais, como a alteração do momento de proteção à vida humana ou exceções a este momento, o que é inconstitucional é desde logo a tramitação de um PL ou emenda constitucional com este conteúdo.

 

Isto significa que apenas com uma nova Constituição seria cogitável esse encaminhamento, não com a que está em vigor.

 

A CONVENÇÃO AMERICANA DE DIREITOS HUMANOS NA CONSTITUIÇÃO FEDERAL

 

Norma específica da Convenção Americana de Direitos Humanos (CADH), firmada pelo Brasil em 1992 e, por isso integrada como norma de direitos humanos da Constituição Federal como cláusula pétrea por força do disposto no art. 5º, § 2º (“Os direitos e garantias expressos nesta Constituição não excluem outros decorrentes do regime e dos princípios por ela adotados, ou dos tratados internacionais em que a República do Brasil seja parte.”) e § 3º (“Os tratados e convenções internacionais sobre direitos humanos […] serão equivalentes às emendas constitucionais.”), assegura a proteção à vida humana desde a concepção, no seu art. 4º: “Toda pessoa tem direito de que se respeite sua vida. Esse direito deve ser protegido pela lei e, em geral, desde o momento da concepção. Ninguém pode ser privado da vida arbitrariamente.”

 

Diante destes mandamentos constitucionais, acrescidos pela integração da CADH ao constitucionalismo brasileiro, em 1992, verifica-se: (1) o nascituro, desde a concepção, passa a ser considerado pessoa para o direito, não mais apenas vida humana que já seria protegida por ele; e (2) seu direito à vida está protegido desde o momento da concepção sob o status de cláusula pétrea constitucional por ser preceito de direitos humanos; (3) o que significa que a vida do nascituro, desde a concepção, não pode ser desrespeitada sequer por emenda à Constituição, diante do art. 60, § 4º, IV, da CF: “Não será objeto de DELIBERAÇÃO a proposta de emenda tendente a abolir os direitos e garantias individuais.” (grifos nossos)

 

A Constituição está proibindo que projetos de lei e emendas de conteúdo abortista possam seguir para deliberação do Poder Legislativo: a própria tramitação destes projetos, sejam de leis, sejam de emendas, não podem ir além da Comissão de Constituição e Justiça do Poder Legislativo, onde constatada esta inconstitucionalidade de conteúdo, eles terão que ser obrigatoriamente vetados e excluídos de encaminhamento para deliberação do Poder Legislativo Federal, por força do citado acima.

 

É um direito pétreo de proteção da vida humana, desde a sua concepção, a proibição de deliberação de leis ou emendas que comprometam a sua existência. Como a todo direito sempre corresponde uma ação judicial em sua defesa, caso aquele não seja respeitado, desde esta fase proibitiva de deliberação, cabe acionar o Poder Judiciário, que tem por última instância nesta hipótese a Corte Interamericana de Direitos Humanos, sem que isto represente interferência alguma em outro poder, se a CCJ aprovar para deliberação do Poder Legislativo emenda ou projeto de lei que conflite com o art. 60, § 4º, IV, da CF.

Infanticídio feminino e mortalidade materna, assassinato em massa de mulheres e deficientes, um genocídio por responsabilidade do governo

 

“O fenômeno do infanticídio feminino é tão antigo em muitas culturas, e foi provavelmente responsável por milhões de mortes seletivas de gênero ao longo da história. Continua, hoje, a ser uma preocupação fundamental em um número de paises do “Terceiro Mundo”, nomeadamente os dois países mais populosos do planeta, China e Índia. Em todos os casos, especificamente o infanticídio feminino reflete o baixo estatuto concedido às mulheres em muitas partes do mundo, e é sem dúvida a manifestação mais brutal e destruidora do viés anti-feminino que permeia as sociedades “patriarcais”. Ela está intimamente ligada aos fenômenos de abortos seletivos, que visa fetos do sexo feminino quase exclusivamente, e negligência a saude de crianças do sexo feminino.” 

“O infanticídio feminino é a morte intencional de bebês do sexo feminino, devido à preferência por bebês do sexo masculino e do baixo valor da pessoa associada com o nascimento de fêmeas.” (Marina Porras, “o infanticídio feminino e o Feticide”.). O FETICIDIO deve ser visto como um subconjunto do fenômeno mais amplo do infanticídio, que também tem como alvo a morte de crianças física ou mentalmente DEFICIENTES, e os machos infantis (ao lado do sexo feminino infantil ou, ocasionalmente, em um gênero seletivo base). Tal como acontece com a MORTALIDADE MATERNA. Alguns contestam a atribuição de infanticídio ou o infanticídio feminino para a categoria de “genocídio” ou, como aqui, “generocídio”.

“No entanto, o argumento apresentado no estudo de caso sobre a categoria MORTALIDADE MATERNA se aplica neste  caso como a seguinte evidencia: governos e outros atores podem ser tão culpados e responsaveis pelo assassinato em massa por negligência, falta de assistencia ‘a saude ou  incentivo tácito ao aborto, como assassinato direto de  mulheres, gestantes, fetos e crianças nascidas.”

    

Aqui no Brasil estamos a ver o governo, de Lula explicitamente desde 2005, e Dilma desde ministra da Casa Civil, com divulgaçoes na midia, vendendo a ideia fraudulenta      de que a mulher brasileira é a favor do aborto.

Sendo assim, não passa de um texto político de intenções, mas que esta sendo posto em pratica por PT e Dilma. Isso é ditadura civil.

Infanticídio feminino e mortalidade materna, assassinato em massa de mulheres e deficientes, um genocídio por responsabilidade do governo

 Case Study: Female Infanticide  

Focus:                                            
(1) India
(2) China

     Summary                            

The phenomenon of female infanticide is as old as many cultures, and has likely accounted for millions of gender-selective deaths throughout history. It remains a critical concern in a number of “Third World” countries today, notably the two most populous countries on earth, China and India. In all cases, specifically female infanticide reflects the low status accorded to women in most parts of the world; it is arguably the most brutal and destructive manifestation of the anti-female bias that pervades “patriarchal” societies. It is closely linked to the phenomena of sex-selective abortion, which targets female fetuses almost exclusively, and neglect of girl children.

The background

“Female infanticide is the intentional killing of baby girls due to the preference for male babies and from the low value associated with the birth of females.” (Marina Porras, “Female Infanticide and Foeticide”.) It should be seen as a subset of the broader phenomenon of infanticide, which has also targeted the physically or mentally handicapped, and infant males (alongside infant females or, occasionally, on a gender-selective basis). As with maternal mortality, some would dispute the assigning of infanticide or female infanticide to the category of “genocide” or, as here, “gendercide.” Nonetheless, the argument advanced in the maternal mortality case-study holds true in this case as well: governments and other actors can be just as guilty of mass killing by neglect or tacit encouragement, as by direct murder. R.J. Rummel buttresses this view, referring to infanticide as

another type of government killing whose victims may total millions … In many cultures, government permitted, if not encouraged, the killing of handicapped or female infants or otherwise unwanted children. In the Greece of 200 B.C., for example, the murder of female infants was so common that among 6,000 families living in Delphi no more than 1 percent had two daughters. Among 79 families, nearly as many had one child as two. Among all there were only 28 daughters to 118 sons. … But classical Greece was not unusual. In eighty-four societies spanning the Renaissance to our time, “defective” children have been killed in one-third of them. In India, for example, because of Hindu beliefs and the rigid caste system, young girls were murdered as a matter of course. When demographic statistics were first collected in the nineteenth century, it was discovered that in “some villages, no girl babies were found at all; in a total of thirty others, there were 343 boys to 54 girls. … [I]n Bombay, the number of girls alive in 1834 was 603.”

Rummel adds: “Instances of infanticide … are usually singular events; they do not happen en masse. But the accumulation of such officially sanctioned or demanded murders comprises, in effect, serial massacre. Since such practices were so pervasive in some cultures, I suspect that the death toll from infanticide must exceed that from mass sacrifice and perhaps even outright mass murder.” (Rummel, Death by Government, pp. 65-66.)

Focus (1): India

As John-Thor Dahlburg points out, “in rural India, the centuries-old practice of female infanticide can still be considered a wise course of action.” (Dahlburg, “Where killing baby girls ‘is no big sin’,” The Los Angeles Times [in The Toronto Star, February 28, 1994.]) According to census statistics, “From 972 females for every 1,000 males in 1901 … the gender imbalance has tilted to 929 females per 1,000 males. … In the nearly 300 poor hamlets of the Usilampatti area of Tamil Nadu [state], as many as 196 girls died under suspicious circumstances [in 1993] … Some were fed dry, unhulled rice that punctured their windpipes, or were made to swallow poisonous powdered fertilizer. Others were smothered with a wet towel, strangled or allowed to starve to death.” Dahlburg profiles one disturbing case from Tamil Nadu:

Lakshmi already had one daughter, so when she gave birth to a second girl, she killed her. For the three days of her second child’s short life, Lakshmi admits, she refused to nurse her. To silence the infant’s famished cries, the impoverished village woman squeezed the milky sap from an oleander shrub, mixed it with castor oil, and forced the poisonous potion down the newborn’s throat. The baby bled from the nose, then died soon afterward. Female neighbors buried her in a small hole near Lakshmi’s square thatched hut of sunbaked mud. They sympathized with Lakshmi, and in the same circumstances, some would probably have done what she did. For despite the risk of execution by hanging and about 16 months of a much-ballyhooed government scheme to assist families with daughters, in some hamlets of … Tamil Nadu, murdering girls is still sometimes believed to be a wiser course than raising them. “A daughter is always liabilities. How can I bring up a second?” Lakshmi, 28, answered firmly when asked by a visitor how she could have taken her own child’s life eight years ago. “Instead of her suffering the way I do, I thought it was better to get rid of her.” (All quotes from Dahlburg, “Where killing baby girls ‘is no big sin’.”)

A study of Tamil Nadu by the Community Service Guild of Madras similarly found that “female infanticide is rampant” in the state, though only among Hindu (rather than Moslem or Christian) families. “Of the 1,250 families covered by the study, 740 had only one girl child and 249 agreed directly that they had done away with the unwanted girl child. More than 213 of the families had more than one male child whereas half the respondents had only one daughter.” (Malavika Karlekar, “The girl child in India: does she have any rights?,” Canadian Woman Studies, March 1995.)

The bias against females in India is related to the fact that “Sons are called upon to provide the income; they are the ones who do most of the work in the fields. In this way sons are looked to as a type of insurance. With this perspective, it becomes clearer that the high value given to males decreases the value given to females.” (Marina Porras, “Female Infanticide and Foeticide”.) The problem is also intimately tied to the institution of dowry, in which the family of a prospective bride must pay enormous sums of money to the family in which the woman will live after marriage. Though formally outlawed, the institution is still pervasive. “The combination of dowry and wedding expenses usually add up to more than a million rupees ([US] $35,000). In India the average civil servant earns about 100,000 rupees ($3,500) a year. Given these figures combined with the low status of women, it seems not so illogical that the poorer Indian families would want only male children.” (Porras, “Female Infanticide and Foeticide”.) Murders of women whose families are deemed to have paid insufficient dowry have become increasingly common, and receive separate case-study treatment on this site.

India is also the heartland of sex-selective abortion. Amniocentesis was introduced in 1974 “to ascertain birth defects in a sample population,” but “was quickly appropriated by medical entrepreneurs. A spate of sex-selective abortions followed.” (Karlekar, “The girl child in India.”) Karlekar points out that “those women who undergo sex determination tests and abort on knowing that the foetus is female are actively taking a decision against equality and the right to life for girls. In many cases, of course, the women are not independent agents but merely victims of a dominant family ideology based on preference for male children.”

Dahlburg notes that “In Jaipur, capital of the western state of Rajasthan, prenatal sex determination tests result in an estimated 3,500 abortions of female fetuses annually,” according to a medical-college study. (Dahlburg, “Where killing baby girls ‘is no big sin’.”) Most strikingly, according to UNICEF, “A report from Bombay in 1984 on abortions after prenatal sex determination stated that 7,999 out of 8,000 of the aborted fetuses were females. Sex determination has become a lucrative business.” (Zeng Yi et al., “Causes and Implications of the Recent Increase in the Reported Sex Ratio at Birth in China,” Population and Development Review, 19: 2 [June 1993], p. 297.)

Deficits in nutrition and health-care also overwhelmingly target female children. Karlekar cites research

indicat[ing] a definite bias in feeding boys milk and milk products and eggs … In Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh [states], it is usual for girls and women to eat less than men and boys and to have their meal after the men and boys had finished eating. Greater mobility outside the home provides boys with the opportunity to eat sweets and fruit from saved-up pocket money or from money given to buy articles for food consumption. In case of illness, it is usually boys who have preference in health care. … More is spent on clothing for boys than for girls[,] which also affects morbidity. (Karlekar, “The girl child in India.”)

Sunita Kishor reports “another disturbing finding,” namely “that, despite the increased ability to command essential food and medical resources associated with development, female children [in India] do not improve their survival chances relative to male children with gains in development. Relatively high levels of agricultural development decrease the life chances of females while leaving males’ life chances unaffected; urbanization increases the life chances of males more than females. … Clearly, gender-based discrimination in the allocation of resources persists and even increases, even when availability of resources is not a constraint.” (Kishor, “‘May God Give Sons to All’: Gender and Child Mortality in India,” American Sociological Review, 58: 2 [April 1993], p. 262.)

Indian state governments have sometimes taken measures to diminish the slaughter of infant girls and abortions of female fetuses. “The leaders of Tamil Nadu are holding out a tempting carrot to couples in the state with one or two daughters and no sons: if one parent undergoes sterilization, the government will give the family [U.S.] \\$160 in aid per child. The money will be paid in instalments as the girl goes through school. She will also get a small gold ring and on her 20th birthday, a lump sum of $650 to serve as her dowry or defray the expenses of higher education. Four thousand families enrolled in the first year,” with 6,000 to 8,000 expected to join annually (as of 1994) (Dahlburg, “Where killing baby girls ‘is no big sin’.”) Such programs have, however, barely begun to address the scale of the catastrophe.

Focus (2): China

“A tradition of infanticide and abandonment, especially of females, existed in China before the foundation of the People’s Republic in 1949,” note Zeng et al.. (“Causes and Implications,” p. 294.) According to Ansley J. Coale and Judith Banister, “A missionary (and naturalist) observer in [China in] the late nineteenth century interviewed 40 women over age 50 who reported having borne 183 sons and 175 daughters, of whom 126 sons but only 53 daughters survived to age 10; by their account, the women had destroyed 78 of their daughters.” (Coale and Banister, “Five Decades of Missing Females in China,” Demography, 31: 3 [August 1994], p. 472.)

According to Zeng et al., “The practice was largely forsaken in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.” (Zeng et al., “Causes and Implications,” p. 294.) Coale and Banister likewise acknowledge a “decline of excess female mortality after the establishment of the People’s Republic … assisted by the action of a strong government, which tried to modify this custom as well as other traditional practices that it viewed as harmful.” (Coale and Banister, “Five Decades,” p. 472.) But the number of “missing” women showed a sharp upward trend in the 1980s, linked by almost all scholars to the “one-child policy” introduced by the Chinese government in 1979 to control spiralling population growth. Couples are penalized by wage-cuts and reduced access to social services when children are born “outside the plan.” Johansson and Nygren found that while “sex ratios [were] generally within or fairly near the expected range of 105 to 106 boys per 100 girls for live births within the plan … they are, in contrast, clearly far above normal for children born outside the plan, even as high as 115 to 118 for 1984-87. That the phenomenon of missing girls in China in the 1980s is related to the government’s population policy is thus conclusively shown.” (Sten Johansson and Ola Nygren, “The Missing Girls of China: A New Demographic Account,” Population and Development Review, 17: 1 [March 1991], pp. 40-41.)

The Chinese government appeared to recognize the linkage by allowing families in rural areas (where anti-female bias is stronger) a second child if the first was a girl. Nonetheless, in September 1997, the World Health Organization’s Regional Committee for the Western Pacific issued a report claiming that “more than 50 million women were estimated to be ‘missing’ in China because of the institutionalized killing and neglect of girls due to Beijing’s population control program that limits parents to one child.” (See Joseph Farah, “Cover-up of China’s gender-cide”, Western Journalism Center/FreeRepublic, September 29, 1997.) Farah referred to the gendercide as “the biggest single holocaust in human history.”

According to Peter Stockland, “Years of population engineering, including virtual extermination of ‘surplus’ baby girls, has created a nightmarish imbalance in China’s male and female populations.” (Stockland, “China’s baby-slaughter overlooked,” The Calgary Sun, June 11, 1997.) In 1999, Jonathan Manthorpe reported a study by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, claiming that “the imbalance between the sexes is now so distorted that there are 111 million men in China — more than three times the population of Canada — who will not be able to find a wife.” As a result, the kidnapping and slave-trading of women has increased: “Since 1990, say official Chinese figures, 64,000 women — 8,000 a year on average — have been rescued by authorities from forced ‘marriages’. The number who have not been saved can only be guessed at. … The thirst for women is so acute that the slave trader gangs are even reaching outside China to find merchandise. There are regular reports of women being abducted in such places as northern Vietnam to feed the demand in China.” (Jonathan Manthorpe, “China battles slave trading in women: Female infanticide fuels a brisk trade in wives,” The Vancouver Sun, January 11, 1999.)

Since the first allegations of widespread female infanticide in China connected to the government’s “one-child” policy, controversy has raged over the number of deaths that can be ascribed to infanticide as opposed to other causes. Zeng et al. argued in 1993 that “underreporting of female births, an increase in prenatal sex identification by ultrasound and other diagnostic methods for the illegal purpose of gender-specific birth control, and [only] very low-level incidence of female infanticide are the causes of the increase in the reported sex ratio at birth in China.” (Zeng et al., “Causes and Implications,” p. 285.) They add: “Underreporting of female births accounts for about 43 percent to 75 percent of the difference between the reported sex ratio at birth during the second half of the 1980s and the normal value of the true sex ratio at birth” (p. 289). The authors contended that “sex-differential underreporting of births and induced abortion after prenatal sex determination together explain almost all of the increase in the reported sex ratio at birth during the late 1980s,” and thus “the omission … of victims of female infanticide cannot be a significant factor.” Moreover, “Both the social and administrative structure and the close bond among neighbors in China make it difficult to conceal a serious crime such as infanticide,” while additionally “Infanticide is not a cost-effective method of sex selection. The psychological and moral costs are so high that people are unlikely to take such a step except under extreme circumstances” (p. 295). They stress, however, that “even small numbers of cases of female infanticide, abandonment, and neglect are a serious violation of the fundamental human rights of women and children” (p. 296). (2002 update: A recent article by John Gittings of the UK Guardian cites national census results released in May 2002 that show that “more than 116 male births were recorded for every 100 female births,” but claims the cause is overwhelmingly sex-selective abortion: “Female infanticide, notorious in China’s past as a primitive method of sex selection, is now thought to be infrequent.” See Gittings, “Growing Sex Imbalance Shocks China”, The Guardian, May 13, 2002.)

In a similar vein, in April 2000, The New York Times reported that “many ‘illegal’ children are born in secret, their births never officially registered.” And “as more women move around the country to work, it is increasingly hard to monitor pregnancies … Unannnounced spot checks by the State Statistics Bureau have discovered undercounts of up to 40 percent in some villages, Chinese demographers say.” (See Elisabeth Rosenthal, “China’s Widely Flouted One-Child Policy Undercuts Its Census”, The New York Times, April 14, 2000.)

Johansson and Nygren attracted considerable notice with a somewhat different claim: “that adoptions (which often go unreported) account for a large proportion of the missing girls. … If adopted children are added to the live births … the sex ratio at birth becomes much closer to normal for most years in the 1980s. … Adding the adopted children to live births reduces the number of missing girls by about half.” (Johansson and Nygren, “The Missing Girls of China,” pp. 43, 46.) They add (p. 50): “That female infanticide does occur on some scale is evidenced by reports in the Chinese press, but the available statistical evidence does not help us to determine whether it takes place on a large or a small scale.”

Even if millions of Chinese infant girls are unregistered rather than directly murdered, however, the pattern of discrimination is one that will severely reduce their opportunities in life. “If parents do hide the birth of a baby girl, she will go unregistered and therefore will not have any legal existence. The child may have difficulty receiving medical attention, going to school, and [accessing] other state services.” (Porras, “Female Infanticide and Foeticide”.)

Likewise, if a Chinese infant girl is turned over for adoption rather than being killed, she risks being placed in one of the notorious “Dying Rooms” unveiled in a British TV documentary. Chinese state orphanages have come in for heavy criticism as a result of the degrading and unsanitary conditions that usually pervade them. In one orphanage, documentary producer Brian Woods found that “every single baby … was a girl, and as we moved on this pattern was repeated. The only boys were mentally or physically disabled. 95% of the babies we saw were able-bodied girls. We also discovered that, although they are described as orphans, very few of them actually are; the overwhelming majority do have parents, but their parents have abandoned them, simply because they were born the wrong sex.” Woods estimated that “up to a million baby girls every year” were victims of this “mass desertion,” deriving from “the complex collision of [China’s] notorious One Child Policy and its traditional preference for sons.” (See Brian Woods, “The Dying Rooms Trust”.)

The phenomenon of neglect of girl children is also dramatically evident in China. According to the World Health Organization, “In many cases, mothers are more likely to bring their male children to health centers — particularly to private physicians — and they may be treated at an earlier stage of disease than girls.” (Cited in Farah, “Cover-up of China’s gender-cide”.)

The Chinese government has taken some energetic steps to combat the practice of female infanticide and sex-selective abortion of female fetuses. It “has employed the Marriage Law and Women’s Protection Law which both prohibit female infanticide. The Women’s Protection Law also prohibits discrimination against ‘women who give birth to female babies.’ … The Maternal Health Care Law of 1994 ‘strictly prohibits’ the use of technology to identify the gender of a fetus.” However, “although the government has outlawed the use of ultrasound machines, physicians continue to use them to determine the gender of fetuses, especially in rural areas.” (Porras, “Female Infanticide and Foeticide”.)

How many die?

Gendercide Watch is aware of no overall statistics on the numbers of girls who die annually from infanticide. Calculations are further clouded by the unreliability and ambiguity of much of the data. Nonetheless, a minimum estimate would place the casualties in the the hundreds of thousands, especially when one takes into consideration that the phenomenon is most prevalent in the world’s two most populous countries. Sex-selective abortions likely account for an even higher number of “missing” girls.

Who is responsible?

As already noted, female infanticide reflects the low status accorded to women in many societies around the world. The “burden” of taking a woman into the family accounts for the high dowry rates in India which, in turn, have led to an epidemic female infanticide. Typical also is China, where

culture dictates that when a girl marries she leaves her family and becomes part of her husband’s family. For this reason Chinese peasants have for many centuries wanted a son to ensure there is someone to look after them in their old age — having a boy child is the best pension a Chinese peasant can get. Baby girls are even called “maggots in the rice” … (“The Dying Rooms Trust”)

Infanticide is a crime overwhelmingly committed by women, both in the Third and First Worlds. (This contrasts markedly with “infanticide in nonhuman primates,” which “is carried out primarily by migrant males who are unrelated to the infant or its parents and is a manifestation of reproductive competition among males.” [Glenn Hausfater, “Infanticide: Comparative and Evolutionary Perspectives,” Current Anthropology, 25: 4 (1984), p. 501.] It also serves as a reminder that gendercide may be implemented by those of the same gender.) In India, according to John-Thor Dahlburg, “many births take place in isolated villages, with only female friends and the midwife present. If a child dies, the women can always blame natural causes.” (Dahlburg, “Where killing baby girls ‘is no big sin’.”) In the United States, “every year hundreds of women commit neonaticide [the killing of newborns] … Prosecutors sometimes don’t prosecute; juries rarely convict; those found guilty almost never go to jail. Barbara Kirwin, a forensic psychologist, reports that in nearly 300 cases of women charged with neonaticide in the United States and Britain, no woman spent more than a night in jail.” Much of “the leniency shown to neonaticidal mothers” reflects the fact that they are standardly “young, poor, unmarried and socially isolated,” although it is notable that similar leniency is rarely extended to young, poor, and socially isolated male murderers. (Steven Pinker, “Why They Kill Their Newborns”, The New York Times, November 2, 1997.)

A number of strategies have been proposed and implemented to try to address the problem of female infanticide, along with the related phenomena of sex-selective abortion and abandonment and neglect of girl children. Zeng et al.‘s prescriptions for Chinese policymakers can easily be generalized to other countries where female infanticide is rife:

The principle of equality between men and women should be more widely promoted through the news media to change the attitude of son preference and improve the awareness of the general public on this issue; the principle should also be reflected in specific social and economic policies to protect the basic rights of women and children, especially female children. … Government regulations prohibiting the use of prenatal sex identification techniques for nonmedical purposes should be strictly enforced, and violators should be punished accordingly. The laws that punish people who commit infanticide, abandonment, and neglect of female children, and the laws and regulations on the protection of women and children[,] should be strictly enforced. The campaigns to protect women and children from being kidnapped or sold into servitude should be effectively strengthened. Family planning programs should focus on effective public education, good counseling and service delivery, and the fully voluntary participation of the community and individuals to increase contraceptive prevalence, reduce unplanned pregnancies, and minimize the need for an induced abortion. (Zeng, et al., p. 298.)

Introduction by the Health Ranger: The United States claims to be the world leader in medicine. But there’s a dark side to western medicine that few want to acknowledge: The horrifying medical experiments performed on impoverished people and their children all in the name of scientific progress. Many of these medical experiments were conducted on people without their knowledge, and most were conducted as part of an effort to seek profits from newly approved drugs or medical technologies.

Today, the medical experiments  continue on the U.S. population  and its children. From the mass drugging of children  diagnosed with fictitious behavioral disorders invented by psychiatry  to the FDA’s approval of mass-marketed drugs  that have undergone no legitimate clinical trials, our population is right now being subjected to medical experiments  on a staggering scale. Today, nearly 50% of Americans are on a least one prescription drug , and nearly 20% of schoolchildren are on mind-altering amphetamines like Ritalin or antidepressants like Prozac. This mass medication  of our nation is, in every way, a grand medical experiment taking place right now.

But to truly understand how this mass experimentation on modern Americans came into being, you have to take a close look at the horrifying history  of conventional medicine’s exploitation of people for cruel medical experiments.

WARNING: What you are about to read is truly shocking. You have never been told this information  by the American Medical Association, nor drug companies , nor the evening news. You were never taught the truth about conventional medicine  in public school, or even at any university. This is the dark secret of the U.S. system of medicine, and once you read the true accounts reported here, you may never trust drug companies again. These images are deeply disturbing. We print them here not as a form of entertainment, but as a stern warning against what might happen to us and our children if we do not rein in the horrifying, inhumane actions of Big Pharma and modern-day psychiatry.

Now, I introduce this shocking timeline, researched and authored by Dani Veracity, one of our many talented staff writers here at Truth Publishing.

Read at your own risk . – The Health Ranger

The true U.S. history of human medical experimentation

Human experimentation — that is, subjecting live human beings to science  experiments that are sometimes cruel, sometimes painful, sometimes deadly and always a risk — is a major part of U.S. history that you won’t find in most history or science books. The United States  is undoubtedly responsible for some of the most amazing scientific breakthroughs. These advancements, especially in the field of medicine, have changed the lives of billions of people around the world — sometimes for the better, as in the case of finding a cure  for malaria and other epidemic diseases, and sometimes for the worse (consider modern “psychiatry” and the drugging of schoolchildren)

.

However, these breakthroughs come with a hefty price tag: The human beings used in the experiments that made these advancements possible. Over the last two centuries, some of these test subjects have been compensated for the damage done to their emotional and physical health , but most have not. Many have lost their lives because of the experiments they often unwillingly and sometimes even unwittingly participated in, and they of course can never be compensated for losing their most precious possession of all: Their health.

As you read through these science experiments, you’ll learn the stories of newborns  injected with radioactive substances, mentally ill people placed in giant refrigerators, military  personnel exposed to chemical weapons by the very government  they served and mentally challenged children being purposely infected with hepatitis . These stories are facts, not fiction: Each account, no matter how horrifying, is backed up with a link or citation to a reputable source.

These stories must be heard because human experimentation  is still going on today. The reasons behind the experiments may be different, but the usual human guinea pigs  are still the same — members of minority groups, the poor and the disadvantaged. These are the lives that were put on the line in the name of “scientific” medicine.

(1833)

Dr. William Beaumont, an army surgeon physician, pioneers gastric medicine with his study of a patient with a permanently open gunshot wound to the abdomen and writes a human medical experimentation  code that asserts the importance of experimental treatments, but also lists requirements stipulating that human subjects must give voluntary, informed consent and be able to end the experiment when they want. Beaumont’s Code lists verbal, rather than just written, consent as permissible (Berdon ).

(1845)

(1845 – 1849) J. Marion Sims, later hailed as the “father of gynecology,” performs medical experiments on enslaved African women without anesthesia . These women would usually die of infection  soon after surgery. Based on his belief that the movement of newborns’ skull bones  during protracted births causes  trismus, he also uses a shoemaker’s awl, a pointed tool shoemakers use to make holes in leather, to practice moving the skull bones of babies  born to enslaved mothers (Brinker ).

(1895)

New York pediatrician Henry Heiman infects a 4-year-old boy whom he calls “an idiot with chronic epilepsy” with gonorrhea as part of a medical experiment (“Human Experimentation: Before the Nazi Era and After” ).

(1896)

Dr. Arthur Wentworth turns 29 children at Boston’s Children’s Hospital into human guinea pigs when he performs spinal taps on them, just to test whether the procedure is harmful (Sharav ).

(1900)

U.S Army doctors working in the Philippines  infect five Filipino prisoners  with plague and withhold proper nutrition  to create Beriberi in 29 prisoners; four test subjects die (Merritte, et al. ; Cockburn and St. Clair, eds. ).

Under commission from the U.S. surgeon general, Dr. Walter Reed goes to Cuba and uses 22 Spanish immigrant workers to prove that yellow fever  is contracted through mosquito bites. Doing so, he introduces the practice of using healthy  test subjects, and also the concept of a written contract to confirm informed consent of these subjects. While doing this study, Dr. Reed clearly tells the subjects that, though he will do everything he can to help them, they may die as a result of the experiment. He pays them $100 in gold for their participation, plus $100 extra if they contract yellow fever (Berdon , Sharav ).

(1906)

Harvard professor Dr. Richard Strong infects prisoners in the Philippines with cholera to study the disease ; 13 of them die. He compensates survivors with cigars and cigarettes. During the Nuremberg Trials, Nazi doctors  cite this study to justify their own medical experiments (Greger , Sharav ).

(1911)

Dr. Hideyo Noguchi of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research publishes data on injecting an inactive syphilis preparation into the skin of 146 hospital patients  and normal children in an attempt to develop a skin  test for syphilis. Later, in 1913, several of these children’s parents  sue Dr. Noguchi for allegedly infecting their children with syphilis (“Reviews and Notes: History of Medicine: Subjected to Science: Human Experimentation in America before the Second World War” ).

(1913)

Medical experimenters “test” 15 children at the children’s home  St. Vincent’s House in Philadelphia with tuberculin, resulting in permanent blindness in some of the children. Though the Pennsylvania House of Representatives records the incident, the researchers are not punished for the experiments (“Human Experimentation: Before the Nazi Era and After” ).

(1915)

Dr. Joseph Goldberger, under order of the U.S. Public Health Office, produces Pellagra, a debilitating disease that affects the central nervous system , in 12 Mississippi inmates to try to find a cure for the disease. One test subject later says that he had been through “a thousand hells.” In 1935, after millions die from the disease, the director of the U.S Public Health Office would finally admit that officials had known that it was caused by a niacin deficiency for some time, but did nothing about it because it mostly affected poor African-Americans. During the Nuremberg Trials, Nazi  doctors used this study to try to justify their medical experiments on concentration camp inmates (Greger ; Cockburn and St. Clair, eds. ).

 (1918)

In response to the Germans’ use of chemical weapons  during World War I, President Wilson creates the Chemical Warfare Service (CWS) as a branch of the U.S. Army. Twenty-four years later, in 1942, the CWS would begin performing mustard  gas and lewisite experiments on over 4,000 members of the armed forces (Global Security , Goliszek).

(1919)

(1919 – 1922) Researchers perform testicular transplant experiments on inmates at San Quentin State Prison in California , inserting the testicles of recently executed inmates and goats into the abdomens and scrotums of living prisoners (Greger ).

(1931)

Cornelius Rhoads, a pathologist from the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, purposely infects human test subjects in Puerto Rico with cancer cells ; 13 of them die. Though a Puerto Rican doctor  later discovers that Rhoads purposely covered up some of details of his experiment and Rhoads himself gives a written testimony stating he believes that all Puerto Ricans should be killed, he later goes on to establish the U.S. Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland , Utah and Panama, and is named to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, where he begins a series of radiation  exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients (Sharav ; Cockburn and St. Clair, eds. ).

(1931 – 1933) Mental patients  at Elgin State Hospital in Illinois  are injected with radium-266 as an experimental therapy  for mental illness (Goliszek).

(1932)

(1932-1972) The U.S. Public Health Service in Tuskegee, Ala. diagnoses 400 poor, black sharecroppers with syphilis but never tells them of their illness  nor treats them; instead researchers use the men as human guinea pigs to follow the symptoms  and progression of the disease. They all eventually die from syphilis and their families are never told that they could have been treated (Goliszek, University of Virginia Health System Health Sciences Library ).

(1937)

Scientists at Cornell University Medical School publish an angina drug study that uses both placebo  and blind assessment techniques on human test subjects. They discover that the subjects given the placebo experienced more of an improvement in symptoms than those who were given the actual drug. This is first account of the placebo effect  published in the United States (“Placebo Effect” ).

(1939)

In order to test his theory on the roots of stuttering, prominent speech pathologist Dr. Wendell Johnson performs his famous “Monster Experiment” on 22 children at the Iowa  Soldiers’ Orphans’ Home in Davenport. Dr. Johnson and his graduate students  put the children under intense psychological pressure, causing them to switch from speaking normally to stuttering heavily. At the time, some of the students reportedly warn Dr. Johnson that, “in the aftermath of World War II, observers might draw comparisons to Nazi experiments on human subjects, which could destroy his career” (Alliance for Human Research Protection ).

 (1941)

Dr. William C. Black infects a 12-month-old baby with herpes as part of a medical experiment. At the time, the editor of the Journal of Experimental Medicine, Francis Payton Rous, calls it “an abuse of power, an infringement of the rights of an individual, and not excusable because the illness which followed had implications for science” (Sharav ).

An article in a 1941 issue of Archives of Pediatrics describes medical studies  of the severe gum disease Vincent’s angina in which doctors transmit the disease from sick children to healthy children with oral swabs (Goliszek).

Drs. Francis and Salk and other researchers at the University of Michigan spray large amounts of wild influenza  virus directly into the nasal passages of “volunteers” from mental institutions in Michigan. The test subjects develop influenza within a very short period of time (Meiklejohn ).

Researchers give 800 poverty-stricken pregnant women  at a Vanderbilt University prenatal clinic “cocktails” including radioactive iron  in order to determine the iron requirements of pregnant women (Pacchioli ).

 (1942)

The United States creates Fort Detrick, a 92-acre facility, employing nearly 500 scientists  working to create biological weapons and develop defensive measures against them. Fort Detrick’s main objectives include investigating whether diseases are transmitted by inhalation, digestion or through skin absorption ; of course, these biological warfare  experiments heavily relied on the use of human subjects (Goliszek).

U.S. Army and Navy doctors infect 400 prison inmates in Chicago with malaria to study the disease and hopefully develop a treatment  for it. The prisoners are told that they are helping the war effort, but not that they are going to be infected with malaria. During Nuremberg Trials, Nazi doctors later cite this American study to defend their own medical experiments in concentration camps like Auschwitz (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds. ).

The Chemical Warfare Service begins mustard gas and lewisite experiments on 4,000 members of the U.S. military. Some test subjects don’t realize they are volunteering  for chemical exposure experiments, like 17-year-old Nathan Schnurman, who in 1944 thinks he is only volunteering to test “U.S. Navy summer clothes” (Goliszek).

In an experiment sponsored by the U.S. Navy, Harvard biochemist Edward Cohn injects 64 inmates of Massachusetts state prisons with cow’s blood (Sharav ).

Merck Pharmaceuticals President George Merck  is named director of the War Research Service (WRS), an agency designed to oversee the establishment of a biological warfare program (Goliszek).

 

(1943)

In order to “study the effect of frigid temperature on mental disorders ,” researchers at University of Cincinnati Hospital keep 16 mentally disabled patients in refrigerated cabinets for 120 hours at 30 degrees Fahrenheit (Sharav ).

(1944)

As part of the Manhattan Project that would eventually create the atomic bomb, researchers inject 4.7 micrograms of plutonium into soldiers at the Oak Ridge facility, 20 miles west of Knoxville, Tenn. (“Manhattan Project: Oak Ridge” ).

 

Captain A. W. Frisch, an experienced microbiologist, begins experiments on four volunteers from the state prison at Dearborn, Mich., inoculating prisoners with hepatitis-infected specimens obtained in North Africa . One prisoner dies; two others develop hepatitis but live; the fourth develops symptoms but does not actually develop the disease (Meiklejohn ).

Laboratory workers at the University of Minnesota and University of Chicago inject human test subjects with phosphorus-32 to learn the metabolism of hemoglobin (Goliszek).

(1944 – 1946) In order to quickly develop a cure for malaria — a disease hindering Allied success in World War II — University of Chicago Medical School professor Dr. Alf Alving infects psychotic patients at Illinois State Hospital with the disease through blood  transfusions and then experiments malaria cures on them (Sharav ).

A captain in the medical corps addresses an April 1944 memo to Col. Stanford Warren, head of the Manhattan Project’s Medical Section, expressing his concerns about atom bomb component fluoride’s central nervous system (CNS) effects and asking for animal research  to be done to determine the extent of these effects: “Clinical evidence suggests that uranium hexafluoride may have a rather marked central nervous system effect … It seems most likely that the F

component rather than the T

is the causative factor … Since work with these compounds is essential, it will be necessary to know in advance what mental effects may occur after exposure .” The following year, the Manhattan Project would begin human-based studies on fluoride’s effects (Griffiths and Bryson ).

The Manhattan Project medical team, led by the now infamous University of Rochester radiologist Col. Safford Warren, injects plutonium into patients at the University’s teaching hospital , Strong Memorial (Burton Report ).

(1945)

Continuing the Manhattan Project, researchers inject plutonium into three patients at the University of Chicago’s Billings Hospital (Sharav ).

The U.S. State Department, Army intelligence  and the CIA begin Operation Paperclip, offering Nazi scientists immunity  and secret identities in exchange for work on top-secret government projects on aerodynamics and chemical warfare medicine in the United States (“Project Paperclip” ).

Researchers infect 800 prisoners in Atlanta with malaria to study the disease (Sharav ).

(1945 – 1955) In Newburgh, N.Y., researchers linked to the Manhattan Project begin the most extensive American study ever done on the health effects of fluoridating public drinking water (Griffiths and Bryson ).

(1946)

Gen. Douglas MacArthur strikes a secret deal with Japanese physician Dr. Shiro Ishii to turn over 10,000 pages of information gathered from human experimentation in exchange for granting Ishii immunity from prosecution for the horrific experiments he performed on Chinese , Russian and American war prisoners, including performing vivisections on live human beings (Goliszek, Sharav ).

Male and female test subjects at Chicago’s Argonne National Laboratories are given intravenous injections of arsenic-76 so that researchers can study how the human body  absorbs, distributes and excretes arsenic  (Goliszek).

Continuing the Newburg study of 1945, the Manhattan Project commissions the University of Rochester to study fluoride’s effects on animals  and humans in a project  codenamed “Program F.” With the help of the New York  State Health Department, Program F researchers secretly collect and analyze blood and tissue samples from Newburg residents. The studies are sponsored by the Atomic Energy Commission and take place at the University of Rochester Medical Center’s Strong Memorial Hospital (Griffiths and Bryson ).

(1946 – 1947) University of Rochester researchers inject four male and two female human test subjects with uranium-234 and uranium-235 in dosages ranging from 6.4 to 70.7 micrograms per one kilogram of body  weight in order to study how much uranium they could tolerate before their kidneys become damaged (Goliszek).

Six male employees  of a Chicago metallurgical laboratory are given water  contaminated with plutonium-239 to drink so that researchers can learn how plutonium is absorbed into the digestive tract (Goliszek).

Researchers begin using patients in VA hospitals as test subjects for human medical experiments , cleverly worded as “investigations” or “observations” in medical study reports to avoid negative connotations and bad publicity (Sharav ).

The American public finally learns of the biowarfare experiments being done at Fort Detrick from a report released by the War Department (Goliszek).

(1946 – 1953)

The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission sponsors studies in which researchers from Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital and the Boston  University School of Medicine feed mentally disabled students at Fernald State School Quaker Oats breakfast cereal spiked with radioactive tracers every morning so that nutritionists can study how preservatives move through the human body and if they block the absorption of vitamins and minerals. Later, MIT  researchers conduct the same study at Wrentham State School (Sharav , Goliszek).

Human test subjects are given one to four injections of arsenic-76 at the University of Chicago Department of Medicine. Researchers take tissue biopsies from the subjects before and after the injections (Goliszek).

(1947)

Col. E.E. Kirkpatrick of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) issues a top-secret document (707075) dated Jan. 8. In it, he writes that “certain radioactive substances are being prepared for intravenous administration to human subjects as a part of the work of the contract” (Goliszek).

A secret AEC document dated April 17 reads, “It is desired that no document be released which refers to experiments with humans that might have an adverse reaction on public opinion or result in legal suits,” revealing that the U.S. government was aware of the health risks its nuclear tests  posed to military personnel conducting the tests or nearby civilians (Goliszek).

The CIA  begins studying LSD’s potential as a weapon by using military and civilian test subjects for experiments without their consent or even knowledge. Eventually, these LSD studies will evolve into the MKULTRA program in 1953 (Sharav ).

(1947 – 1953) The U.S. Navy begins Project Chatter to identify and test so-called “truth serums,” such as those used by the Soviet Union to interrogate spies. Mescaline and the central nervous system depressant scopolamine are among the many drugs tested on human subjects (Goliszek).

(1948)

Based on the secret studies performed on Newburgh, N.Y. residents beginning in 1945, Project F researchers publish a report in the August 1948 edition of the Journal of the American Dental Association, detailing fluoride’s health dangers. The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) quickly censors it for “national security” reasons (Griffiths and Bryson ).

(1950)

(1950 – 1953) The CIA and later the Office of Scientific Intelligence begin Project Bluebird (renamed Project Artichoke in 1951) in order to find ways to “extract” information from CIA agents, control individuals “through special interrogation techniques,” “enhance memory ” and use “unconventional techniques, including hypnosis  and drugs” for offensive measures (Goliszek).

(1950)

(1950 – 1953) The CIA and later the Office of Scientific Intelligence begin Project Bluebird (renamed Project Artichoke in 1951) in order to find ways to “extract” information from CIA agents, control individuals “through special interrogation techniques,” “enhance memory ” and use “unconventional techniques, including hypnosis  and drugs” for offensive measures (Goliszek).

(1950 – 1953) The U.S. Army releases chemical clouds over six American and Canadian cities . Residents in Winnipeg, Canada, where a highly toxic  chemical called cadmium is dropped, subsequently experience high rates of respiratory illnesses (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds. ).

In order to determine how susceptible an American city could be to biological attack, the U.S. Navy sprays a cloud of Bacillus globigii bacteria  from ships over the San Francisco  shoreline. According to monitoring devices situated throughout the city to test the extent of infection, the eight thousand residents of San Francisco inhale five thousand or more bacteria particles, many becoming sick with pneumonia-like symptoms (Goliszek).

Dr. Joseph Strokes of the University of Pennsylvania infects 200 female prisoners with viral hepatitis to study the disease (Sharav ).

Doctors at the Cleveland City Hospital study changes in cerebral blood flow  by injecting test subjects with spinal anesthesia, inserting needles in their jugular veins and brachial arteries , tilting their heads down and, after massive blood loss causes paralysis and fainting, measuring their blood pressure . They often perform this experiment multiple times on the same subject (Goliszek).

Dr. D. Ewen Cameron, later of MKULTRA infamy due to his 1957 to1964 experiments on Canadians , publishes an article in the British Journal of Physical Medicine, in which he describes experiments that entail forcing schizophrenic patients at Manitoba’s Brandon Mental Hospital to lie naked under 15- to 200-watt red lamps for up to eight hours per day. His other experiments include placing mental patients in an electric cage that overheats their internal body temperatures to 103 degrees Fahrenheit, and inducing comas by giving patients large injections of insulin  (Goliszek).

(1951)

The U.S. Navy’s Project Bluebird is renamed Project Artichoke and begins human medical experiments that test the effectiveness of LSD, sodium pentothal and hypnosis for the interrogative purposes described in Project Bluebird’s objectives (1950) (Goliszek).

The U.S. Army secretly contaminates the Norfolk Naval Supply Center in Virginia and Washington , D.C.’s National Airport with a strain of bacteria chosen because African-Americans were believed to be more susceptible to it than Caucasians. The experiment causes food poisoning , respiratory problems and blood poisoning (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds. ).

(1951 – 1952) Researchers withhold insulin from diabetic patients for up to two days in order to observe the effects of diabetes; some test subjects go into diabetic comas (Goliszek).

(1951 – 1956) Under contract with the Air Force’s School of Aviation Medicine (SAM), the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston begins studying the effects of radiation on cancer  patients — many of them members of minority groups or indigents, according to sources — in order to determine both radiation’s ability to treat cancer and the possible long-term radiation effects of pilots  flying nuclear-powered planes. The study lasts until 1956, involving 263 cancer patients. Beginning in 1953, the subjects are required to sign a waiver form, but it still does not meet the informed consent guidelines established by the Wilson memo released that year. The TBI studies themselves would continue at four different institutions — Baylor University College of Medicine, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research, the U.S. Naval Hospital in Bethesda and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine — until 1971 (U.S. Department of Energy , Goliszek).

American, Canadian and British military and intelligence officials gather a small group of eminent psychologists to a secret meeting at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Montreal about Communist “thought-control techniques.” They proposed a top-secret research program on behavior  modification — involving testing drugs, hypnosis, electroshock and lobotomies on humans (Barker ).

(1952)

Military scientists use the Dugway Proving Ground — which is located 87 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah — in a series of experiments to determine how Brucella suis and Brucella melitensis spread in human populations. Today, over a half-century later, some experts  claim that we are all infected with these agents as a result of these experiments (Goliszek).

In a U.S. Department of Denfense-sponsored experiment, Henry Blauer dies after he is injected with mescaline at Columbia University’s New York State Psychiatric Institute (Sharav ).

At the famous Sloan-Kettering Institute, Chester M. Southam injects live cancer cells into prisoners at the Ohio State Prison to study the progression of the disease. Half of the prisoners in this National Institutes of Health-sponsored (NIH) study are black, awakening racial suspicions stemming from Tuskegee, which was also an NIH-sponsored study (Merritte, et al. ).

(1953)

(1953 – 1970) The CIA begins project MKNAOMI to “stockpile incapacitating and lethal materials, to develop gadgetry for the disseminations of these materials, and to test the effects of certain drugs on animals and humans.” As part of MKNAOMI, the CIA and the Special Operations Division of the Army Biological Laboratory at Fort Detrick try to develop two suicide  pill alternatives to the standard cyanide suicide pill given to CIA agents and U-2 pilots. CIA agents and U-2 pilots are meant to take these pills when they find themselves in situations in which they (and all the information they hold in their brains ) are in enemy hands. They also develop a “microbioinoculator” — a device that agents can use to fire small darts coated with biological agents that can remain potent for weeks or even months. These darts can be fired through clothing  and, most significantly, are undetectable during autopsy. Eventually, by the late 1960s, MKNAOMI enables the CIA to have a stockpile of biological toxins  — infectious viruses, paralytic shellfish toxin, lethal botulism toxin, snake venom and the severe skin disease-producing agent Mircosporum gypseum. Of course, the development of all of this “gadgetry” requires human experimentation (Goliszek).

(1953 – 1974) CIA Director Allen Dulles authorizes the MKULTRA program to produce and test drugs and biological agents that the CIA could use for mind control  and behavior modification. MKULTRA later becomes well known for its pioneering studies on LSD, which are often performed on prisoners or patrons of brothels set up and run by the CIA. The brothel experiments, known as “Operation Midnight Climax,” feature two-way mirrors set up in the brothels so that CIA agents can observe LSD’s effects on sexual behavior. Ironically, governmental figures sometimes slip LSD into each other’s drinks as part of the program, resulting in the LSD psychosis-induced suicide of Dr. Frank Olson indirectly at the hands of MKULTRA’s

MKULTRA’s infamous key player Dr. Sidney Gottlieb. Of all the hundreds of human test subjects used during MKULTRA, only 14 are ever notified of the involvement and only one is ever compensated ($15,000). Most of the MKULTRA files are eventually destroyed in 1973 (Elliston ; Merritte, et al. ; Barker ).

The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) sponsors iodine studies at the University of Iowa. In the first study, researchers give pregnant women 100 to 200 microcuries of iodine-131 and then study the women’s aborted embryos in order to learn at what stage and to what extent radioactive iodine crosses the placental barrier. In the second study, researchers give 12 male and 13 female newborns under 36 hours old and weighing between 5.5 and 8.5 pounds iodine-131 either orally or via intramuscular injection, later measuring the concentration of iodine in the newborns’ thyroid glands (Goliszek).

Secretary of Defense Charles Wilson issues the Wilson memo, a top-secret document establishing the Nuremberg Code as Department of Defense policy on human experimentation. The Wilson memo requires voluntary, written consent from a human medical research subject after he or she has been informed of “the nature , duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.” It also insists that doctors only use experimental treatments when other methods have failed (Berdon ).

As part of an AEC study, researchers feed 28 healthy infants at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine iodine-131 through a gastric tube and then test concentration of iodine in the infants’ thyroid glands 24 hours later (Goliszek).

Monday, March 06, 2006 by: Dani Veracity

This is part two of a two-part series on human medical experimentation. Click here to read part one and the introduction.

(1966)

The CIA continues a limited number of MKULTRA plans by beginning Project MKSEARCH to develop and test ways of using biological, chemical and radioactive materials in intelligence operations, and also to develop and test drugs that are able to produce predictable changes in human behavior and physiology (Goliszek).

Dr. Henry Beecher writes, “The well-being, the health, even the actual or potential life of all human beings, born or unborn, depend upon the continuing experimentation in man. Proceed it must; proceed it will. ‘The proper study of mankind is man,'” in his “exposé” on human medical experimentation Research and the Individual (“Human Experimentation: Before the Nazi Era and After”).

U.S. Army scientists drop light bulbs filled with Bacillus subtilis through ventilation gates and into the New York City subway system, exposing more than one million civilians to the bacteria (Goliszek).

The National Commission for the Protection of Research Subjects issues its Policies for the Protection of Human Subjects, which eventually creates what we now know as institutional review boards (IRBs) (Sharav).

(1967)

Continuing on his Dow Chemical Company-sponsored dioxin study without the company’s knowledge or consent, University of Pennsylvania Professor Albert Kligman increases the dosage of dioxin he applies to 10 prisoners’ skin to 7,500 micrograms, 468 times the dosage Dow official Gerald K. Rowe had authorized him to administer. As a result, the prisoners experience acne lesions that develop into inflammatory pustules and papules (Kaye).

The CIA places a chemical in the drinking water supply of the FDA headquarters in Washington, D.C. to see whether it is possible to spike drinking water with LSD and other substances (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds.).

In a study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, researchers inject pregnant women with radioactive cortisol to see if the radioactive material will cross the placentas and affect the fetuses (Goliszek).

The U.S. Army pays Professor Kligman to apply skin-blistering chemicals to Holmesburg Prison inmates’ faces and backs, so as to, in Professor Kligman’s words, “learn how the skin protects itself against chronic assault from toxic chemicals, the so-called hardening process,” information which would have both offensive and defensive applications for the U.S. military (Kaye).

The CIA and Edgewood Arsenal Research Laboratories begin an extensive program for developing drugs that can influence human behavior. This program includes Project OFTEN — which studies the toxicology, transmission and behavioral effects of drugs in animal and human subjects — and Project CHICKWIT, which gathers European and Asian drug development information (Goliszek).

Professor Kligman develops Retin-A as an acne cream (and eventually a wrinkle cream), turning him into a multi-millionaire (Kaye).

Researchers paralyze 64 prison inmates in California with a neuromuscular compound called succinylcholine, which produces suppressed breathing that feels similar to drowning. When five prisoners refuse to participate in the medical experiment, the prison’s special treatment board gives researchers permission to inject the prisoners with the drug against their will (Greger).

(1968)

Planned Parenthood of San Antonio and South Central Texas and the Southwest Foundation for Research and Education begin an oral contraceptive study on 70 poverty-stricken Mexican-American women, giving only half the oral contraceptives they think they are receiving and the other half a placebo. When the results of this study are released a few years later, it stirs tremendous controversy among Mexican-Americans (Sharav, Sauter).

(1969)

President Nixon ends the United States’ offensive biowarfare program, including human experimentation done at Fort Detrick. By this time, tens of thousands of civilians and members of the U.S. armed forces have wittingly and unwittingly acted as participants in experiments involving exposure to dangerous biological agents (Goliszek).

The U.S. military conducts DTC Test 69-12, which is an open-air test of VX and sarin nerve agents at the Army’s Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland, likely exposing military personnel (Goliszek, Martin).

Experimental drugs are tested on mentally disabled children in Milledgeville, Ga., without any institutional approval whatsoever (Sharav).

Dr. Donald MacArthur, the U.S. Department of Defense’s Deputy Director for Research and Technology, requests $10 million from Congress to develop a synthetic biological agent that would be resistant “to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious disease” (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds.).

Judge Sam Steinfield’s dissent in Strunk v. Strunk, 445 S.W.2d 145 marks the first time a judge has ever suggested that the Nuremberg Code be applied in American court cases (Sharav).

(1970)

A year after his request, under H.R. 15090, Dr. MacArthur receives funding to begin CIA-supervised mycoplasma research with Fort Detrick’s Special Operations Division and hopefully create a synthetic immunosuppressive agent. Some experts believe that this research may have inadvertently created HIV, the virus that causes AIDS (Goliszek).

Under order from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which also sponsored the Tuskegee Experiment, the free childcare program at Johns Hopkins University collects blood samples from 7,000 African-American youth, telling their parents that they are checking for anemia but actually checking for an extra Y chromosome (XYY), believed to be a biological predisposition to crime. The program director, Digamber Borganokar, does this experiment without Johns Hopkins University’s permission (Greger, Merritte, et al.).

(1971)

President Nixon converts Fort Detrick from an offensive biowarfare lab to the Frederick Cancer Research and Development Center, now known as the National Cancer Institute at Frederick. In addition to cancer research, scientists study virology, immunology and retrovirology (including HIV) there. Additionally, the site is home to the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute, which researches drugs, vaccines and countermeasures for biological warfare, so the former Fort Detrick does not move far away from its biowarfare past (Goliszek).

Stanford University conducts the Stanford Prison Experiment on a group of college students in order to learn the psychology of prison life. Some students are given the role as prison guards, while the others are given the role of prisoners. After only six days, the proposed two-week study has to end because of its psychological effects on the participants. The “guards” had begun to act sadistic, while the “prisoners” started to show signs of depression and severe psychological stress (University of New Hampshire).

An article entitled “Viral Infections in Man Associated with Acquired Immunological Deficiency States” appears in Federation Proceedings. Dr. MacArthur and Fort Detrick’s Special Operations Division have, at this point, been conducting mycoplasma research to create a synthetic immunosuppressive agent for about one year, again suggesting that this research may have produced HIV (Goliszek).

(1972)

In studies sponsored by the U.S. Air Force, Dr. Amedeo Marrazzi gives LSD to mental patients at the University of Missouri Institute of Psychiatry and the University of Minnesota Hospital to study “ego strength” (Barker).

(1973)

An Ad Hoc Advisory Panel issues its Final Report on the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, writing, “Society can no longer afford to leave the balancing of individual rights against scientific progress to the scientific community” (Sharav).

(1974)

Congress enacts the National Research Act, creating the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research and finally setting standards for human experimentation on children (Breslow).

(1975)

The Department of Health, Education and Welfare gives the National Institutes of Health’s Policies for the Protection of Human Subjects (1966) regulatory status. Title 45, known as “The Common Rule,” officially creates institutional review boards (IRBs) (Sharav).

(1977)

The Kennedy Hearing initiates the process toward Executive Order 12333, prohibiting intelligence agencies from experimenting on humans without informed consent (Merritte, et al.).

The U.S. government issues an official apology and $400,000 to Jeanne Connell, the sole survivor from Col. Warren’s now-infamous plutonium injections at Strong Memorial Hospital, and the families of the other human test subjects (Burton Report).

The National Urban League holds its National Conference on Human Experimentation, stating, “We don’t want to kill science but we don’t want science to kill, mangle and abuse us” (Sharav).

(1978)

The CDC begins experimental hepatitis B vaccine trials in New York. Its ads for research subjects specifically ask for promiscuous homosexual men. Professor Wolf Szmuness of the Columbia University School of Public Health had made the vaccine’s infective serum from the pooled blood serum of hepatitis-infected homosexuals and then developed it in chimpanzees, the only animal susceptible to hepatitis B, leading to the theory that HIV originated in chimpanzees before being transferred over to humans via this vaccine. A few months after 1,083 homosexual men receive the vaccine, New York physicians begin noticing cases of Kaposi’s sarcoma, Mycoplasma penetrans and a new strain of herpes virus among New York’s homosexual community — diseases not usually seen among young, American men, but that would later be known as common opportunistic diseases associated with AIDS (Goliszek).

(1979)

The National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research releases the Belmont Report, which establishes the foundations for research experimentation on humans. The Belmont Report mandates that researchers follow three basic principles: 1. Respect the subjects as autonomous persons and protect those with limited ability for independence (such as children), 2. Do no harm, 3. Choose test subjects justly — being sure not to target certain groups because of they are easily accessible or easily manipulated, rather than for reasons directly related to the tests (Berdon).

(1980)

A study reveals a high incidence of leukemia among the 18,000 military personnel who participated in 1957’s Operation Plumbbob (a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Plumbbob”>”Operation Plumbob”).

According to blood samples tested years later for HIV, 20 percent of all New York homosexual men who participated in the 1978 hepatitis B vaccine experiment are HIV-positive by this point (Goliszek).

American doctors give experimental hormone shots to hundreds of Haitian men confined to detention camps in Miami and Puerto Rico, causing the men to develop a condition known as gynecomastia, in which men develop full-sized breasts (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds.).

The CDC continues its 1978 hepatitis B vaccine experiment in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, St. Louis and Denver, recruiting over 7,000 homosexual men in San Francisco alone (Goliszek).

The FDA prohibits the use of prison inmates in pharmaceutical drug trials, leading to the advent of the experimental drug testing centers industry (Sharav).

The first AIDS case appears in San Francisco (Goliszek).

(1981)

(1981 – 1993) The Seattle-based Genetic Systems Corporation begins an ongoing medical experiment called Protocol No. 126, in which cancer patients at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle are given bone marrow transplants that contain eight experimental proteins made by Genetic Systems, rather than standard bone marrow transplants; 19 human subjects die from complications directly related to the experimental treatment (Goliszek).

A deep diving experiment at Duke University causes test subject Leonard Whitlock to suffer permanent brain damage (Sharav).

The CDC acknowledges that a disease known as AIDS exists and confirms 26 cases of the disease — all in previously healthy homosexuals living in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles — again supporting the speculation that AIDS originated from the hepatitis B experiments from 1978 and 1980 (Goliszek).

(1982)

Thirty percent of the test subjects used in the CDC’s hepatitis B vaccine experiment are HIV-positive by this point (Goliszek).

(1984)

SFBC Phase I research clinic founded in Miami, Fla. By 2005, it would become the largest experimental drug testing center in North America with centers in Miami and Montreal, running Phase I to Phase IV clinical trials (Drug Development-Technology.com).

(1985)

A former U.S. Army sergeant tries to sue the Army for using drugs on him in without his consent or even his knowledge in United States v. Stanley, 483 U.S. 669. Justice Antonin Scalia writes the decision, clearing the U.S. military from any liability in past, present or future medical experiments without informed consent (Merritte, et al..

(1987)

Philadelphia resident Doris Jackson discovers that researchers have removed her son’s brain post mortem for medical study. She later learns that the state of Pennsylvania has a doctrine of “implied consent,” meaning that unless a patient signs a document stating otherwise, consent for organ removal is automatically implied (Merritte, et al.).

(1988)

The U.S. Justice Department pays nine Canadian survivors of the CIA and Dr. Cameron’s “psychic driving” experiments (1957 – 1964) $750,000 in out-of-court settlements, to avoid any further investigations into MKULTRA (Goliszek).

(1988 – 2001) The New York City Administration for Children’s Services begins allowing foster care children living in about two dozen children’s homes to be used in National Institutes of Health-sponsored (NIH) experimental AIDS drug trials. These children — totaling 465 by the program’s end — experience serious side effects, including inability to walk, diarrhea, vomiting, swollen joints and cramps. Children’s home employees are unaware that they are giving the HIV-infected children experimental drugs, rather than standard AIDS treatments (New York City ACS, Doran).

(1990)

The United States sends 1.7 million members of the armed forces, 22 percent of whom are African-American, to the Persian Gulf for the Gulf War (“Desert Storm”). More than 400,000 of these soldiers are ordered to take an experimental nerve agent medication called pyridostigmine, which is later believed to be the cause of Gulf War Syndrome — symptoms ranging from skin disorders, neurological disorders, incontinence, uncontrollable drooling and vision problems — affecting Gulf War veterans (Goliszek; Merritte, et al.).

The CDC and Kaiser Pharmaceuticals of Southern California inject 1,500 six-month-old black and Hispanic babies in Los Angeles with an “experimental” measles vaccine that had never been licensed for use in the United States. Adding to the risk, children less than a year old may not have an adequate amount of myelin around their nerves, possibly resulting in impaired neural development because of the vaccine. The CDC later admits that parents were never informed that the vaccine being injected into their children was experimental (Goliszek).

The FDA allows the U.S. Department of Defense to waive the Nuremberg Code and use unapproved drugs and vaccines in Operation Desert Shield (Sharav).

(1991)

In the May 27 issue of the Los Angeles Times, former U.S. Navy radio operator Richard Jenkins writes that he suffers from leukemia, chronic fatigue and kidney and liver disease as a result of the radiation exposure he received in 1958’s Operation Hardtack (Goliszek).

While participating in a UCLA study that withdraws schizophrenics off of their medications, Tony LaMadrid commits suicide (Sharav).

(1992)

Columbia University’s New York State Psychiatric Institute and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine give 100 males — mostly African-American and Hispanic, all between the ages of six and 10 and all the younger brothers of juvenile delinquents — 10 milligrams of fenfluramine (fen-fen) per kilogram of body weight in order to test the theory that low serotonin levels are linked to violent or aggressive behavior. Parents of the participants received $125 each, including a $25 Toys ‘R’ Us gift certificate (Goliszek).

(1993)

Researchers at the West Haven VA in Connecticut give 27 schizophrenics — 12 inpatients and 15 functioning volunteers — a chemical called MCPP that significantly increases their psychotic symptoms and, as researchers note, negatively affects the test subjects on a long-term basis (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

(1994)

In a double-blind experiment at New York VA Hospital, researchers take 23 schizophrenic inpatients off of their medications for a median of 30 days. They then give 17 of them 0.5 mg/kg amphetamine and six a placebo as a control, following up with PET scans at Brookhaven Laboratories. According to the researchers, the purpose of the experiment was “to specifically evaluate metabolic effects in subjects with varying degrees of amphetamine-induced psychotic exacerbation” (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

Albuquerque Tribune reporter Eileen Welsome receives a Pulitzer Prize for her investigative reporting into Col. Warren’s plutonium experiments on patients at Strong Memorial Hospital in 1945 (Burton Report).

In a federally funded experiment at New York VA Medical Center, researchers give schizophrenic veterans amphetamine, even though central nervous system stimulants worsen psychotic symptoms in 40 percent of schizophrenics (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

Researchers at Bronx VA Medical Center recruit 28 schizophrenic veterans who are functioning in society and give them L-dopa in order to deliberately induce psychotic relapse (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

President Clinton appoints the Advisory Commission on Human Radiation Experiments (ACHRE), which finally reveals the horrific experiments conducted during the Cold War era in its ACHRE Report.

(1995)

A 19-year-old University of Rochester student named Nicole Wan dies from participating in an MIT-sponsored experiment that tests airborne pollutant chemicals on humans. The experiment pays $150 to human test subjects (Sharav).

In the Mar. 15 President’s Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments (ACHRE), former human subjects, including those who were used in experiments as children, give sworn testimonies stating that they were subjected to radiation experiments and/or brainwashed, hypnotized, drugged, psychologically tortured, threatened and even raped during CIA experiments. These sworn statements include:

• Christina DeNicola’s statement that, in Tucson, Ariz., from 1966 to 1976, “Dr. B” performed mind control experiments using drugs, post-hypnotic injection and drama, and irradiation experiments on her neck, throat, chest and uterus. She was only four years old when the experiments started.

• Claudia Mullen’s testimony that Dr. Sidney Gottlieb (of MKULTRA fame) used chemicals, radiation, hypnosis, drugs, isolation in tubs of water, sleep deprivation, electric shock, brainwashing and emotional, sexual and verbal abuse as part of mind control experiments that had the ultimate objective of turning her, who was only a child at the time, into the “perfect spy.” She tells the advisory committee that researchers justified this abuse by telling her that she was serving her country “in their bold effort to fight Communism.”

• Suzanne Starr’s statement that “a physician, who was retired from the military, got children from the mountains of Colorado for experiments.” She says she was one of those children and that she was the victim of experiments involving environmental deprivation to the point of forced psychosis, spin programming, injections, rape and frequent electroshock and mind control sessions. “I have fought self-destructive programmed messages to kill myself, and I know what a programmed message is, and I don’t act on them,” she tells the advisory committee of the experiments’ long-lasting effects, even in her adulthood (Goliszek).

President Clinton publicly apologizes to the thousands of people who were victims of MKULTRA and other mind-control experimental programs (Sharav).

In Dr. Daniel P. van Kammen’s study, “Behavioral vs. Biochemical Prediction of Clinical Stability Following Haloperidol Withdrawal in Schizophrenia,” researchers recruit 88 veterans who are stabilized by their medications enough to make them functional in society, and hospitalize them for eight to 10 weeks. During this time, the researchers stop giving the veterans the medications that are enabling them to live in society, placing them back on a two- to four-week regimen of the standard dose of Haldol. Then, the veterans are “washed-out,” given lumbar punctures and put under six-week observation to see who would relapse and suffer symptomatic schizophrenia once again; 50 percent do (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

President Clinton appoints the National Bioethics Advisory Committee (Sharav).

Justice Edward Greenfield of the New York State Supreme Court rules that parents do not have the right to volunteer their mentally incapacitated children for non-therapeutic medical research studies and that no mentally incapacitated person whatsoever can be used in a medical experiment without informed consent (Sharav).

(1996)

Professor Adil E. Shamoo of the University of Maryland and the organization Citizens for Responsible Care and Research sends a written testimony on the unethical use of veterans in medical research to the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Governmental Affairs, stating: “This type of research is on-going nationwide in medical centers and VA hospitals supported by tens of millions of dollars of taxpayers money. These experiments are high risk and are abusive, causing not only physical and psychic harm to the most vulnerable groups but also degrading our society’s system of basic human values. Probably tens of thousands of patients are being subjected to such experiments” (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

The Department of Defense admits that Gulf War soldiers were exposed to chemical agents; however, 33 percent of all military personnel afflicted with Gulf War Syndrome never left the United States during the war, discrediting the popular mainstream belief that these symptoms are a result of exposure to Iraqi chemical weapons (Merritte, et al.).

In a federally funded experiment at West Haven VA in Connecticut, Yale University researchers give schizophrenic veterans amphetamine, even though central nervous system stimulants worsen psychotic symptoms in 40 percent of schizophrenics (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

President Clinton issues a formal apology to the subjects of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and their families (Sharav).

(1997)

In order to expose unethical medical experiments that provoke psychotic relapse in schizophrenic patients, the Boston Globe publishes a four-part series entitled “Doing Harm: Research on the Mentally Ill” (Sharav).

Researchers give 26 veterans at a VA hospital a chemical called Yohimbine to purposely induce post-traumatic stress disorder (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

In order to create a “psychosis model,” University of Cincinnati researchers give 16 schizophrenic patients at Cincinnati VA amphetamine in order to provoke repeats bouts of psychosis and eventually produce “behavioral sensitization” (Sharav).

National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) researchers give schizophrenic veterans amphetamine, even though central nervous system stimulants worsen psychotic symptoms in 40 percent of schizophrenics (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

In an experiment sponsored by the U.S. government, researchers withhold medical treatment from HIV-positive African-American pregnant women, giving them a placebo rather than AIDS medication (Sharav).

Researchers give amphetamine to 13 schizophrenic patients in a repetition of the 1994 “amphetamine challenge” at New York VA Hospital. As a result, the patients experience psychosis, delusions and hallucinations. The researchers claim to have informed consent (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

On Sept. 18, victims of unethical medical experiments at major U.S. research centers, including the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) testify before the National Bioethics Advisory Committee (Sharav).

(1999)

Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D. testifies on “The Unethical Use of Human Beings in High-Risk Research Experiments” before the U.S. House of Representatives’ House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, alerting the House on the use of American veterans in VA Hospitals as human guinea pigs and calling for national reforms (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

Doctors at the University of Pennsylvania inject 18-year-old Jesse Gelsinger with an experimental gene therapy as part of an FDA-approved clinical trial. He dies four days later and his father suspects that he was not fully informed of the experiment’s risk (Goliszek)

During a clinical trial investigating the effectiveness of Propulsid for infant acid reflux, nine-month-old Gage Stevens dies at Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh (Sharav).

(2000)

The Department of Defense begins declassifying the records of Project 112, including SHAD, and locating and assisting the veterans who were exposed to live toxins and chemical agents as part of Project 112. Many of them have already died (Goliszek).

President Clinton authorizes the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Act, which compensates the Department of Energy workers who sacrificed their health to build the United States’ nuclear defenses (Sharav).

The U.S. Air Force and rocket maker Lockheed Martin sponsor a Loma Linda University study that pays 100 Californians $1,000 to eat a dose of perchlorate — a toxic component of rocket fuel that causes cancer, damages the thyroid gland and hinders normal development in children and fetuses — every day for six months. The dose eaten by the test subjects is 83 times the safe dose of perchlorate set by the State of California, which has perchlorate in some of its drinking water. This Loma Linda study is the first large-scale study to use human subjects to test the harmful effects of a water pollutant and is “inherently unethical,” according to Environmental Working Group research director Richard Wiles (Goliszek, Envirnomental Working Group).

(2001)

Healthy 27-year-old Ellen Roche dies in a challenge study at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland (Sharav).

On its website, the FDA admits that its policy to include healthy children in human experiments “has led to an increasing number of proposals for studies of safety and pharmacokinetics, including those in children who do not have the condition for which the drug is intended” (Goliszek).

During a tobacco industry-financed Alzheimer’s experiment at Case Western University in Cleveland, Elaine Holden-Able dies after she drinks a glass of orange juice containing a dissolved dietary supplement (Sharav).

Radiologist Scott Scheer of Pennsylvania dies from kidney failure, severe anemia and possibly lupus — all caused by blood pressure drugs he was taking as part of a five-year clinical trial. After his death, his family sues the Institutional Review Board of Main Line Hospitals, the hospital that oversaw the study, and two doctors. Investigators from the federal Office for Human Research Protections, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services, later conclude in a Dec. 20, 2002 letter to Scheer’s oldest daughter: “Your father apparently was not told about the risk of hydralazine-induced lupus … OHRP found that certain unanticipated problems involving risks to subjects or others were not promptly reported to appropriate institutional officials” (Willen and Evans, “Doctor Who Died in Drug Test Was Betrayed by System He Trusted.”)

In Higgins and Grimes v. Kennedy Krieger Institute The Maryland Court of Appeals makes a landmark decision regarding the use of children as test subjects, prohibiting non-therapeutic experimentation on children on the basis of “best interest of the individual child” (Sharav).

(2002)

President George W. Bush signs the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA), offering pharmaceutical companies six-month exclusivity in exchange for running clinical drug trials on children. This will of course increase the number of children used as human test subjects (Hammer Breslow).

(2003)

Two-year-old Michael Daddio of Delaware dies of congestive heart failure. After his death, his parents learn that doctors had performed an experimental surgery on him when he was five months old, rather than using the established surgical method of repairing his congenital heart defect that the parents had been told would be performed. The established procedure has a 90- to 95-percent success rate, whereas the inventor of the procedure performed on baby Daddio would later be fired from his hospital in 2004 (Willen and Evans, “Parents of Babies Who Died in Delaware Tests Weren’t Warned”).

(2004)

In his BBC documentary “Guinea Pig Kids” and BBC News article of the same name, reporter Jamie Doran reveals that children involved in the New York City foster care system were unwitting human subjects in experimental AIDS drug trials from 1988 to, in his belief, present times (Doran).

(2005)

In response to the BBC documentary and article “Guinea Pig Kids”, the New York City Administration of Children’s Services (ACS) sends out an Apr. 22 press release admitting that foster care children were used in experimental AIDS drug trials, but says that the last trial took place in 2001 and thus the trials are not continuing, as BBC reporter Jamie Doran claims. The ACS gives the extent and statistics of the experimental drug trials, based on its own records, and contracts the Vera Institute of Justice to conduct “an independent review of ACS policy and practice regarding the enrollment of HIV-positive children in foster care in clinical drug trials during the late 1980s and 1990s” (New York City ACS).

In exchange for receiving $2 million from the American Chemical Society, the EPA proposes the Children’s Health Environmental Exposure Research Study (CHEERS) to learn how children ranging from infancy to three years old ingest, inhale and absorb chemicals by exposing children from a poor, predominantly black area of Duval County, Fla., to these toxins. Due to pressure from activist groups, negative media coverage and two Democratic senators, the EPA eventually decides to drop the study on Apr. 8, 2005 (Organic Consumers Association).

Bloomberg releases a series of reports suggesting that SFBC, the largest experimental drug testing center of its time, exploits immigrant and other low-income test subjects and runs tests with limited credibility due to violations of both the FDA’s and SFBC’s own testing guidelines (Bloomberg).

(1966)

The CIA continues a limited number of MKULTRA plans by beginning Project MKSEARCH to develop and test ways of using biological, chemical and radioactive materials in intelligence operations, and also to develop and test drugs that are able to produce predictable changes in human behavior and physiology (Goliszek).

Dr. Henry Beecher writes, “The well-being, the health, even the actual or potential life of all human beings, born or unborn, depend upon the continuing experimentation in man. Proceed it must; proceed it will. ‘The proper study of mankind is man,'” in his “exposé” on human medical experimentation Research and the Individual (“Human Experimentation: Before the Nazi Era and After”).

U.S. Army scientists drop light bulbs filled with Bacillus subtilis through ventilation gates and into the New York City subway system, exposing more than one million civilians to the bacteria (Goliszek).

The National Commission for the Protection of Research Subjects issues its Policies for the Protection of Human Subjects, which eventually creates what we now know as institutional review boards (IRBs) (Sharav).

 (1967)

Continuing on his Dow Chemical Company-sponsored dioxin study without the company’s knowledge or consent, University of Pennsylvania Professor Albert Kligman increases the dosage of dioxin he applies to 10 prisoners’ skin to 7,500 micrograms, 468 times the dosage Dow official Gerald K. Rowe had authorized him to administer. As a result, the prisoners experience acne lesions that develop into inflammatory pustules and papules (Kaye).

The CIA places a chemical in the drinking water supply of the FDA headquarters in Washington, D.C. to see whether it is possible to spike drinking water with LSD and other substances (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds.).

In a study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, researchers inject pregnant women with radioactive cortisol to see if the radioactive material will cross the placentas and affect the fetuses (Goliszek).

The U.S. Army pays Professor Kligman to apply skin-blistering chemicals to Holmesburg Prison inmates’ faces and backs, so as to, in Professor Kligman’s words, “learn how the skin protects itself against chronic assault from toxic chemicals, the so-called hardening process,” information which would have both offensive and defensive applications for the U.S. military (Kaye).

The CIA and Edgewood Arsenal Research Laboratories begin an extensive program for developing drugs that can influence human behavior. This program includes Project OFTEN — which studies the toxicology, transmission and behavioral effects of drugs in animal and human subjects — and Project CHICKWIT, which gathers European and Asian drug development information (Goliszek).

Professor Kligman develops Retin-A as an acne cream (and eventually a wrinkle cream), turning him into a multi-millionaire (Kaye).

Researchers paralyze 64 prison inmates in California with a neuromuscular compound called succinylcholine, which produces suppressed breathing that feels similar to drowning. When five prisoners refuse to participate in the medical experiment, the prison’s special treatment board gives researchers permission to inject the prisoners with the drug against their will (Greger).

(1968)

Planned Parenthood of San Antonio and South Central Texas and the Southwest Foundation for Research and Education begin an oral contraceptive study on 70 poverty-stricken Mexican-American women, giving only half the oral contraceptives they think they are receiving and the other half a placebo. When the results of this study are released a few years later, it stirs tremendous controversy among Mexican-Americans (Sharav, Sauter).

(1969)

President Nixon ends the United States’ offensive biowarfare program, including human experimentation done at Fort Detrick. By this time, tens of thousands of civilians and members of the U.S. armed forces have wittingly and unwittingly acted as participants in experiments involving exposure to dangerous biological agents (Goliszek).

The U.S. military conducts DTC Test 69-12, which is an open-air test of VX and sarin nerve agents at the Army’s Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland, likely exposing military personnel (Goliszek, Martin).

Experimental drugs are tested on mentally disabled children in Milledgeville, Ga., without any institutional approval whatsoever (Sharav).

Dr. Donald MacArthur, the U.S. Department of Defense’s Deputy Director for Research and Technology, requests $10 million from Congress to develop a synthetic biological agent that would be resistant “to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious disease” (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds.).

Judge Sam Steinfield’s dissent in Strunk v. Strunk, 445 S.W.2d 145 marks the first time a judge has ever suggested that the Nuremberg Code be applied in American court cases (Sharav).

(1970)

A year after his request, under H.R. 15090, Dr. MacArthur receives funding to begin CIA-supervised mycoplasma research with Fort Detrick’s Special Operations Division and hopefully create a synthetic immunosuppressive agent. Some experts believe that this research may have inadvertently created HIV, the virus that causes AIDS (Goliszek).

Under order from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which also sponsored the Tuskegee Experiment, the free childcare program at Johns Hopkins University collects blood samples from 7,000 African-American youth, telling their parents that they are checking for anemia but actually checking for an extra Y chromosome (XYY), believed to be a biological predisposition to crime. The program director, Digamber Borganokar, does this experiment without Johns Hopkins University’s permission (Greger, Merritte, et al.).

(1971)

President Nixon converts Fort Detrick from an offensive biowarfare lab to the Frederick Cancer Research and Development Center, now known as the National Cancer Institute at Frederick. In addition to cancer research, scientists study virology, immunology and retrovirology (including HIV) there. Additionally, the site is home to the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute, which researches drugs, vaccines and countermeasures for biological warfare, so the former Fort Detrick does not move far away from its biowarfare past (Goliszek).

Stanford University conducts the Stanford Prison Experiment on a group of college students in order to learn the psychology of prison life. Some students are given the role as prison guards, while the others are given the role of prisoners. After only six days, the proposed two-week study has to end because of its psychological effects on the participants. The “guards” had begun to act sadistic, while the “prisoners” started to show signs of depression and severe psychological stress (University of New Hampshire).

An article entitled “Viral Infections in Man Associated with Acquired Immunological Deficiency States” appears in Federation Proceedings. Dr. MacArthur and Fort Detrick’s Special Operations Division have, at this point, been conducting mycoplasma research to create a synthetic immunosuppressive agent for about one year, again suggesting that this research may have produced HIV (Goliszek).

(1972)

In studies sponsored by the U.S. Air Force, Dr. Amedeo Marrazzi gives LSD to mental patients at the University of Missouri Institute of Psychiatry and the University of Minnesota Hospital to study “ego strength” (Barker).

(1973)

An Ad Hoc Advisory Panel issues its Final Report on the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, writing, “Society can no longer afford to leave the balancing of individual rights against scientific progress to the scientific community” (Sharav).

 (1974)

Congress enacts the National Research Act, creating the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research and finally setting standards for human experimentation on children (Breslow).

(1975)

The Department of Health, Education and Welfare gives the National Institutes of Health’s Policies for the Protection of Human Subjects (1966) regulatory status. Title 45, known as “The Common Rule,” officially creates institutional review boards (IRBs) (Sharav).

(1977)

The Kennedy Hearing initiates the process toward Executive Order 12333, prohibiting intelligence agencies from experimenting on humans without informed consent (Merritte, et al.).

The U.S. government issues an official apology and $400,000 to Jeanne Connell, the sole survivor from Col. Warren’s now-infamous plutonium injections at Strong Memorial Hospital, and the families of the other human test subjects (Burton Report).

The National Urban League holds its National Conference on Human Experimentation, stating, “We don’t want to kill science but we don’t want science to kill, mangle and abuse us” (Sharav).

(1978)

The CDC begins experimental hepatitis B vaccine trials in New York. Its ads for research subjects specifically ask for promiscuous homosexual men. Professor Wolf Szmuness of the Columbia University School of Public Health had made the vaccine’s infective serum from the pooled blood serum of hepatitis-infected homosexuals and then developed it in chimpanzees, the only animal susceptible to hepatitis B, leading to the theory that HIV originated in chimpanzees before being transferred over to humans via this vaccine. A few months after 1,083 homosexual men receive the vaccine, New York physicians begin noticing cases of Kaposi’s sarcoma, Mycoplasma penetrans and a new strain of herpes virus among New York’s homosexual community — diseases not usually seen among young, American men, but that would later be known as common opportunistic diseases associated with AIDS (Goliszek).

(1979)

The National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research releases the Belmont Report, which establishes the foundations for research experimentation on humans. The Belmont Report mandates that researchers follow three basic principles: 1. Respect the subjects as autonomous persons and protect those with limited ability for independence (such as children), 2. Do no harm, 3. Choose test subjects justly — being sure not to target certain groups because of they are easily accessible or easily manipulated, rather than for reasons directly related to the tests (Berdon).

 

 (1980)

A study reveals a high incidence of leukemia among the 18,000 military personnel who participated in 1957’s Operation Plumbbob (a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Plumbbob”>”Operation Plumbob”).

According to blood samples tested years later for HIV, 20 percent of all New York homosexual men who participated in the 1978 hepatitis B vaccine experiment are HIV-positive by this point (Goliszek).

American doctors give experimental hormone shots to hundreds of Haitian men confined to detention camps in Miami and Puerto Rico, causing the men to develop a condition known as gynecomastia, in which men develop full-sized breasts (Cockburn and St. Clair, eds.).

The CDC continues its 1978 hepatitis B vaccine experiment in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, St. Louis and Denver, recruiting over 7,000 homosexual men in San Francisco alone (Goliszek).

The FDA prohibits the use of prison inmates in pharmaceutical drug trials, leading to the advent of the experimental drug testing centers industry (Sharav).

The first AIDS case appears in San Francisco (Goliszek).

(1981)

(1981 – 1993) The Seattle-based Genetic Systems Corporation begins an ongoing medical experiment called Protocol No. 126, in which cancer patients at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle are given bone marrow transplants that contain eight experimental proteins made by Genetic Systems, rather than standard bone marrow transplants; 19 human subjects die from complications directly related to the experimental treatment (Goliszek).

A deep diving experiment at Duke University causes test subject Leonard Whitlock to suffer permanent brain damage (Sharav).

The CDC acknowledges that a disease known as AIDS exists and confirms 26 cases of the disease — all in previously healthy homosexuals living in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles — again supporting the speculation that AIDS originated from the hepatitis B experiments from 1978 and 1980 (Goliszek).

 (1982)

Thirty percent of the test subjects used in the CDC’s hepatitis B vaccine experiment are HIV-positive by this point (Goliszek).

(1984)

SFBC Phase I research clinic founded in Miami, Fla. By 2005, it would become the largest experimental drug testing center in North America with centers in Miami and Montreal, running Phase I to Phase IV clinical trials (Drug Development-Technology.com).

(1985)

A former U.S. Army sergeant tries to sue the Army for using drugs on him in without his consent or even his knowledge in United States v. Stanley, 483 U.S. 669. Justice Antonin Scalia writes the decision, clearing the U.S. military from any liability in past, presen

Introduction by the Health Ranger: The United States claims to be the world leader in medicine. But there’s a dark side to western medicine that few want to acknowledge: The horrifying medical experiments performed on impoverished people and their children all in the name of scientific progress. Many of these medical experiments were conducted on people without their knowledge, and most were conducted as part of an effort to seek profits from newly approved drugs or medical technologies.

A former U.S. Army sergeant tries to sue the Army for using drugs on him in without his consent or even his knowledge in United States v. Stanley, 483 U.S. 669. Justice Antonin Scalia writes the decision, clearing the U.S. military from any liability in past, present or future medical experiments without informed consent (Merritte, et al..

(1987)

Philadelphia resident Doris Jackson discovers that researchers have removed her son’s brain post mortem for medical study. She later learns that the state of Pennsylvania has a doctrine of “implied consent,” meaning that unless a patient signs a document stating otherwise, consent for organ removal is automatically implied (Merritte, et al.).

(1988)

The U.S. Justice Department pays nine Canadian survivors of the CIA and Dr. Cameron’s “psychic driving” experiments (1957 – 1964) $750,000 in out-of-court settlements, to avoid any further investigations into MKULTRA (Goliszek).

(1988 – 2001) The New York City Administration for Children’s Services begins allowing foster care children living in about two dozen children’s homes to be used in National Institutes of Health-sponsored (NIH) experimental AIDS drug trials. These children — totaling 465 by the program’s end — experience serious side effects, including inability to walk, diarrhea, vomiting, swollen joints and cramps. Children’s home employees are unaware that they are giving the HIV-infected children experimental drugs, rather than standard AIDS treatments (New York City ACS, Doran).

(1990)

The United States sends 1.7 million members of the armed forces, 22 percent of whom are African-American, to the Persian Gulf for the Gulf War (“Desert Storm”). More than 400,000 of these soldiers are ordered to take an experimental nerve agent medication called pyridostigmine, which is later believed to be the cause of Gulf War Syndrome — symptoms ranging from skin disorders, neurological disorders, incontinence, uncontrollable drooling and vision problems — affecting Gulf War veterans (Goliszek; Merritte, et al.).

The CDC and Kaiser Pharmaceuticals of Southern California inject 1,500 six-month-old black and Hispanic babies in Los Angeles with an “experimental” measles vaccine that had never been licensed for use in the United States. Adding to the risk, children less than a year old may not have an adequate amount of myelin around their nerves, possibly resulting in impaired neural development because of the vaccine. The CDC later admits that parents were never informed that the vaccine being injected into their children was experimental (Goliszek).

The FDA allows the U.S. Department of Defense to waive the Nuremberg Code and use unapproved drugs and vaccines in Operation Desert Shield (Sharav).

(1991)

In the May 27 issue of the Los Angeles Times, former U.S. Navy radio operator Richard Jenkins writes that he suffers from leukemia, chronic fatigue and kidney and liver disease as a result of the radiation exposure he received in 1958’s Operation Hardtack (Goliszek).

While participating in a UCLA study that withdraws schizophrenics off of their medications, Tony LaMadrid commits suicide (Sharav).

(1992)

Columbia University’s New York State Psychiatric Institute and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine give 100 males — mostly African-American and Hispanic, all between the ages of six and 10 and all the younger brothers of juvenile delinquents — 10 milligrams of fenfluramine (fen-fen) per kilogram of body weight in order to test the theory that low serotonin levels are linked to violent or aggressive behavior. Parents of the participants received $125 each, including a $25 Toys ‘R’ Us gift certificate (Goliszek).

(1993)

Researchers at the West Haven VA in Connecticut give 27 schizophrenics — 12 inpatients and 15 functioning volunteers — a chemical called MCPP that significantly increases their psychotic symptoms and, as researchers note, negatively affects the test subjects on a long-term basis (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

(1994)

In a double-blind experiment at New York VA Hospital, researchers take 23 schizophrenic inpatients off of their medications for a median of 30 days. They then give 17 of them 0.5 mg/kg amphetamine and six a placebo as a control, following up with PET scans at Brookhaven Laboratories. According to the researchers, the purpose of the experiment was “to specifically evaluate metabolic effects in subjects with varying degrees of amphetamine-induced psychotic exacerbation” (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

Albuquerque Tribune reporter Eileen Welsome receives a Pulitzer Prize for her investigative reporting into Col. Warren’s plutonium experiments on patients at Strong Memorial Hospital in 1945 (Burton Report).

In a federally funded experiment at New York VA Medical Center, researchers give schizophrenic veterans amphetamine, even though central nervous system stimulants worsen psychotic symptoms in 40 percent of schizophrenics (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

Researchers at Bronx VA Medical Center recruit 28 schizophrenic veterans who are functioning in society and give them L-dopa in order to deliberately induce psychotic relapse (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

President Clinton appoints the Advisory Commission on Human Radiation Experiments (ACHRE), which finally reveals the horrific experiments conducted during the Cold War era in its ACHRE Report.

(1995)

A 19-year-old University of Rochester student named Nicole Wan dies from participating in an MIT-sponsored experiment that tests airborne pollutant chemicals on humans. The experiment pays $150 to human test subjects (Sharav).

In the Mar. 15 President’s Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments (ACHRE), former human subjects, including those who were used in experiments as children, give sworn testimonies stating that they were subjected to radiation experiments and/or brainwashed, hypnotized, drugged, psychologically tortured, threatened and even raped during CIA experiments. These sworn statements include:

• Christina DeNicola’s statement that, in Tucson, Ariz., from 1966 to 1976, “Dr. B” performed mind control experiments using drugs, post-hypnotic injection and drama, and irradiation experiments on her neck, throat, chest and uterus. She was only four years old when the experiments started.

• Claudia Mullen’s testimony that Dr. Sidney Gottlieb (of MKULTRA fame) used chemicals, radiation, hypnosis, drugs, isolation in tubs of water, sleep deprivation, electric shock, brainwashing and emotional, sexual and verbal abuse as part of mind control experiments that had the ultimate objective of turning her, who was only a child at the time, into the “perfect spy.” She tells the advisory committee that researchers justified this abuse by telling her that she was serving her country “in their bold effort to fight Communism.”

• Suzanne Starr’s statement that “a physician, who was retired from the military, got children from the mountains of Colorado for experiments.” She says she was one of those children and that she was the victim of experiments involving environmental deprivation to the point of forced psychosis, spin programming, injections, rape and frequent electroshock and mind control sessions. “I have fought self-destructive programmed messages to kill myself, and I know what a programmed message is, and I don’t act on them,” she tells the advisory committee of the experiments’ long-lasting effects, even in her adulthood (Goliszek).

President Clinton publicly apologizes to the thousands of people who were victims of MKULTRA and other mind-control experimental programs (Sharav).

In Dr. Daniel P. van Kammen’s study, “Behavioral vs. Biochemical Prediction of Clinical Stability Following Haloperidol Withdrawal in Schizophrenia,” researchers recruit 88 veterans who are stabilized by their medications enough to make them functional in society, and hospitalize them for eight to 10 weeks. During this time, the researchers stop giving the veterans the medications that are enabling them to live in society, placing them back on a two- to four-week regimen of the standard dose of Haldol. Then, the veterans are “washed-out,” given lumbar punctures and put under six-week observation to see who would relapse and suffer symptomatic schizophrenia once again; 50 percent do (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

President Clinton appoints the National Bioethics Advisory Committee (Sharav).

Justice Edward Greenfield of the New York State Supreme Court rules that parents do not have the right to volunteer their mentally incapacitated children for non-therapeutic medical research studies and that no mentally incapacitated person whatsoever can be used in a medical experiment without informed consent (Sharav).

(1996)

Professor Adil E. Shamoo of the University of Maryland and the organization Citizens for Responsible Care and Research sends a written testimony on the unethical use of veterans in medical research to the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Governmental Affairs, stating: “This type of research is on-going nationwide in medical centers and VA hospitals supported by tens of millions of dollars of taxpayers money. These experiments are high risk and are abusive, causing not only physical and psychic harm to the most vulnerable groups but also degrading our society’s system of basic human values. Probably tens of thousands of patients are being subjected to such experiments” (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

The Department of Defense admits that Gulf War soldiers were exposed to chemical agents; however, 33 percent of all military personnel afflicted with Gulf War Syndrome never left the United States during the war, discrediting the popular mainstream belief that these symptoms are a result of exposure to Iraqi chemical weapons (Merritte, et al.).

In a federally funded experiment at West Haven VA in Connecticut, Yale University researchers give schizophrenic veterans amphetamine, even though central nervous system stimulants worsen psychotic symptoms in 40 percent of schizophrenics (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

President Clinton issues a formal apology to the subjects of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and their families (Sharav).

(1997)

In order to expose unethical medical experiments that provoke psychotic relapse in schizophrenic patients, the Boston Globe publishes a four-part series entitled “Doing Harm: Research on the Mentally Ill” (Sharav).

Researchers give 26 veterans at a VA hospital a chemical called Yohimbine to purposely induce post-traumatic stress disorder (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

In order to create a “psychosis model,” University of Cincinnati researchers give 16 schizophrenic patients at Cincinnati VA amphetamine in order to provoke repeats bouts of psychosis and eventually produce “behavioral sensitization” (Sharav).

National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) researchers give schizophrenic veterans amphetamine, even though central nervous system stimulants worsen psychotic symptoms in 40 percent of schizophrenics (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

In an experiment sponsored by the U.S. government, researchers withhold medical treatment from HIV-positive African-American pregnant women, giving them a placebo rather than AIDS medication (Sharav).

Researchers give amphetamine to 13 schizophrenic patients in a repetition of the 1994 “amphetamine challenge” at New York VA Hospital. As a result, the patients experience psychosis, delusions and hallucinations. The researchers claim to have informed consent (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

On Sept. 18, victims of unethical medical experiments at major U.S. research centers, including the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) testify before the National Bioethics Advisory Committee (Sharav).

(1999)

Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D. testifies on “The Unethical Use of Human Beings in High-Risk Research Experiments” before the U.S. House of Representatives’ House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, alerting the House on the use of American veterans in VA Hospitals as human guinea pigs and calling for national reforms (“Testimony of Adil E. Shamoo, Ph.D.”).

Doctors at the University of Pennsylvania inject 18-year-old Jesse Gelsinger with an experimental gene therapy as part of an FDA-approved clinical trial. He dies four days later and his father suspects that he was not fully informed of the experiment’s risk (Goliszek)

During a clinical trial investigating the effectiveness of Propulsid for infant acid reflux, nine-month-old Gage Stevens dies at Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh (Sharav).

(2000)

The Department of Defense begins declassifying the records of Project 112, including SHAD, and locating and assisting the veterans who were exposed to live toxins and chemical agents as part of Project 112. Many of them have already died (Goliszek).

President Clinton authorizes the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Act, which compensates the Department of Energy workers who sacrificed their health to build the United States’ nuclear defenses (Sharav).

The U.S. Air Force and rocket maker Lockheed Martin sponsor a Loma Linda University study that pays 100 Californians $1,000 to eat a dose of perchlorate — a toxic component of rocket fuel that causes cancer, damages the thyroid gland and hinders normal development in children and fetuses — every day for six months. The dose eaten by the test subjects is 83 times the safe dose of perchlorate set by the State of California, which has perchlorate in some of its drinking water. This Loma Linda study is the first large-scale study to use human subjects to test the harmful effects of a water pollutant and is “inherently unethical,” according to Environmental Working Group research director Richard Wiles (Goliszek, Envirnomental Working Group).

(2001)

Healthy 27-year-old Ellen Roche dies in a challenge study at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland (Sharav).

On its website, the FDA admits that its policy to include healthy children in human experiments “has led to an increasing number of proposals for studies of safety and pharmacokinetics, including those in children who do not have the condition for which the drug is intended” (Goliszek).

During a tobacco industry-financed Alzheimer’s experiment at Case Western University in Cleveland, Elaine Holden-Able dies after she drinks a glass of orange juice containing a dissolved dietary supplement (Sharav).

Radiologist Scott Scheer of Pennsylvania dies from kidney failure, severe anemia and possibly lupus — all caused by blood pressure drugs he was taking as part of a five-year clinical trial. After his death, his family sues the Institutional Review Board of Main Line Hospitals, the hospital that oversaw the study, and two doctors. Investigators from the federal Office for Human Research Protections, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services, later conclude in a Dec. 20, 2002 letter to Scheer’s oldest daughter: “Your father apparently was not told about the risk of hydralazine-induced lupus … OHRP found that certain unanticipated problems involving risks to subjects or others were not promptly reported to appropriate institutional officials” (Willen and Evans, “Doctor Who Died in Drug Test Was Betrayed by System He Trusted.”)

In Higgins and Grimes v. Kennedy Krieger Institute The Maryland Court of Appeals makes a landmark decision regarding the use of children as test subjects, prohibiting non-therapeutic experimentation on children on the basis of “best interest of the individual child” (Sharav).

(2002)

President George W. Bush signs the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA), offering pharmaceutical companies six-month exclusivity in exchange for running clinical drug trials on children. This will of course increase the number of children used as human test subjects (Hammer Breslow).

(2003)

Two-year-old Michael Daddio of Delaware dies of congestive heart failure. After his death, his parents learn that doctors had performed an experimental surgery on him when he was five months old, rather than using the established surgical method of repairing his congenital heart defect that the parents had been told would be performed. The established procedure has a 90- to 95-percent success rate, whereas the inventor of the procedure performed on baby Daddio would later be fired from his hospital in 2004 (Willen and Evans, “Parents of Babies Who Died in Delaware Tests Weren’t Warned”).

(2004)

In his BBC documentary “Guinea Pig Kids” and BBC News article of the same name, reporter Jamie Doran reveals that children involved in the New York City foster care system were unwitting human subjects in experimental AIDS drug trials from 1988 to, in his belief, present times (Doran).

(2005)

In response to the BBC documentary and article “Guinea Pig Kids”, the New York City Administration of Children’s Services (ACS) sends out an Apr. 22 press release admitting that foster care children were used in experimental AIDS drug trials, but says that the last trial took place in 2001 and thus the trials are not continuing, as BBC reporter Jamie Doran claims. The ACS gives the extent and statistics of the experimental drug trials, based on its own records, and contracts the Vera Institute of Justice to conduct “an independent review of ACS policy and practice regarding the enrollment of HIV-positive children in foster care in clinical drug trials during the late 1980s and 1990s” (New York City ACS).

In exchange for receiving $2 million from the American Chemical Society, the EPA proposes the Children’s Health Environmental Exposure Research Study (CHEERS) to learn how children ranging from infancy to three years old ingest, inhale and absorb chemicals by exposing children from a poor, predominantly black area of Duval County, Fla., to these toxins. Due to pressure from activist groups, negative media coverage and two Democratic senators, the EPA eventually decides to drop the study on Apr. 8, 2005 (Organic Consumers Association).

Bloomberg releases a series of reports suggesting that SFBC, the largest experimental drug testing center of its time, exploits immigrant and other low-income test subjects and runs tests with limited credibility due to violations of both the FDA’s and SFBC’s own testing guidelines (Bloomberg).

Bancos, comercio macabro: investimentos no tráfico de recursos, orgaos e tecidos humanos

A reportagem do Programa “60 minutes” mostra a decisiva participação de bancos nos financiamentos e investimentos no tráfico de recursos e tecidos humanos, incluso no terceiro crime organizado mais lucrativo do mundo, o tráfico de órgãos humanos.

Apenas um corpo humano pode somar um lucro de 200 mil dólares. Esta indústria já movimentava meio bilhão de dólares por ano, em 2003, e começou a se desenvolver em meados da década de 90 com o desenvolvimento da Engenharia de Tecidos.

Os tecidos e outras partes do corpo humano são destinados ao comércio cosmético também e para cirurgias estéticas diversas, como de aumento de pênis, e não destinados a um centro de atendimento a vítimas de queimaduras, como endereçados pelos parentes doadores.

A mesma lógica de financiamento do tráfico de tecidos humanos, originalmente doados para atendimento de vítimas de queimaduras, também está presente no tráfico de órgãos humanos.

Sobre política usa como argumentos a ideia espuria de ajudar a saude das mulheres pobres mantendo a criminosa industria multimilionaria de abortamento – como fazem aqui no Brasil no plano político nacional do PT e presidente Dilma, e a Rede Feminista de Saúde e de Direitos Reprodutivos no Conselho Nacional dos Direitos das Mulheres-, quando todo o planeta ja sabe que as mulheres que abortam tém risco elevado de desenvolver cancer de mamas.

A Planned Parenthood é a maior maquina abortista norte-americana. Nos EUA, sua política falsa usa como argumentos a ideia espuria de ajudar a saude das mulheres pobres mantendo a criminosa industria multimilionaria de abortamento – como fazem aqui no Brasil tambem o plano político nacional do PT e presidente Dilma, e a Rede Feminista de Saúde e de Direitos Reprodutivos no Conselho Nacional dos Direitos das Mulheres-, quando todo o planeta ja sabe que as mulheres que abortam tém risco elevado de desenvolver cancer de mamas. É justamente sobre esta falta de ética, financeira e cientifica com relação á vidA, que J. Brown escreve. A Planned Parenthood investe no aborto e concomitantemente na economia das doenças cronicas das mulheres.

Komen, Planned Parenthood e éticistas católicos = muito ruim ao coraçao

25 set 2010

Por Judie Brown


O câncer de mama – duas palavras que imediatamente desencadeiam o medo no coração de uma mulher. Planned Parenthood – duas palavras que devem provocar o medo no coração de uma mulher. Quando uma organização que tenta defender as mulheres, trazendo à luz as causas do câncer de mama, e um dia erradicá-la, doa dinheiro para uma organização que mata inocentes bebês não-nascidos -, portanto, também colocando as mulheres em situação de risco – é preciso saber Quem realmente se beneficia de essa associação.

Um dia no mês passado um amigo me enviou uma cópia de uma carta EM http://ww5.komen.org/uploadedFiles/Content_Binaries/PlannedParenthoodStatement2009.pdf  carta que recebeu de Eric Winer, o principal conselheiro científico para a Susan G. Komen for the Cure. A carta, datada de março de 2009, está entre as mais enigmático que já li. O mistério que eu encontrei nas palavras de Winer vem sobre porque parece que ele esqueceu o que significa realmente esforçar-se para proteger a saúde e o bem-estar das mulheres, mas escolheu um caminho diferente que desculpa a relação com Komen enquanto Planned Parenthood, ao mesmo tempo, ignorando evidências clínica de que o aborto pode levar a cancro da mama.

Em sua carta, Winer diz ao leitor que a crítica que sua organização recebe  SOBRE o relacionamento de Komen for the Cure com as associações da Planned Parenthood é infundada. Ele chega a esta conclusão porque, na sua opinião, há apenas uma unidade de saúde em algumas comunidades para as mulheres pobres, não assegurando o recebimento de educação, triagem e tratamento para câncer de mama – e que a facilidade é o Planned Parenthood. http://www.plannedparenthood.org/health-topics/womens-health/breast-cancer-screenings-21189.htm  Winer parece convencido de que, sem parceria com a Planned Parenthood/Komen estaria fazendo um desserviço aos pobres em certas comunidades. Não só isso, mas há também o argumento de que os fundos desembolsados por Komen são restritos.

The Orange County Register informou sobre a conexão planejada de fundos restritos da Komen A Parenthood, citando um representante local, Komen, Sonia Aujla, que escreveu em um e-mail, “A linha inferior é que todos os subsídios da nossa comunidade são restritas e monitorados de perto para fornecer saúde de mama, educação, triagem e serviços de tratamento vital para mulheres carentes.”

Acho que pensam que devemos estar convencidos de que, porque os fundos são “limitados e monitorados de perto”, não temos motivos para se preocupar que o pessoal da Planned Parenthood se aproveita da situação. MAS É ÓBVIO que cada dolar que KOMEN doa para a Planned Parenthood, um dólar de outra fonte é liberado para promover e realizar o aborto.

Em sua carta, Winer mencionou que Komen conserva relacionamento com dois especialistas em ética católica, Ron Hamel, Ph.D. e Michael Panicola, Ph.D. Estes homens, de acordo com Winer, “examinaram as implicações  morais da nossa decisão de financiamento da Planned Parenthood. Eles CONCLUÍRAM que era MORALMENTE ADMISSÍVEL para a IGREJA o ENVOLVIMENTO DE KOMEN à luz de seus acordos de financiamento COM A PLANNED PARENTHOOD”.

A opinião Hamel / Panicola, publicado no infame site, pró-Obama para Associação Católica de Cuidados a Saúde, www.chausa.org/WorkArea/DownloadAsset.aspx?id=6357  é realmente uma obra de arte. É o típico mumbo-jumbo que se poderia esperar de uma aliança entre a Planned Parenthood e Susan G. Komen for the Cure, numa perspectiva que foge da verdade e que anuncia para a saúde e o bem-estar, das mulheres e seus bebês não-nascidos, o cancro e a morte.

Hamel e Panicola opinam, “O fato de algumas filiais Komen, às vezes, fornecerem financiamento para Planned Parenthood especificamente e exclusivamente para os serviços de saúde da mama, não podem ser interpretada como irregularidade.” Para justificar o seu apoio para a aliança aliança Komen / Planned Parenthood, esses especialistas católicos em ética explicam ao leitor que os católicos e a própria Igreja têm a obrigação de se sentar com aqueles que estão em erro e ajudá-los a ver, como fez Cristo, o erro em suas formas . Enquanto tal ponto de vista é certamente louvável, contudo não chega ao cerne do problema neste caso. PLANNED PARENTHOOD ESTÁ PRATICANDO ALGUM DELITO O TEMPO INTEIRO E KOMEN está a fechar os olhos para a verdade, e, assim, tecendo sua própria teia de enganos. Cristo não se sentou com os transgressores, a fim de ajudá-los a continuar seus maus caminhos, mas ele aproveitou a oportunidade para ensinar-lhes que o caminho da salvação exige que deixem seus erros.

Ignorando os fatos e continuar a angariar fundos para uma instituição de caridade que despreza a verdade, não está ajudando a Planned Parenthood em direção a Cristo e à verdade. Pelo contrário, está a permitir que os erros e crimes continuam.

Não nos esqueçamos de que Winer Komen também descartou a ligação comprovada entre o aborto eo cancro da mama, EMBORA EXISTAM MUITOS ESTUDOS CLÍNICOS E PROFISSIONAIS QUE CONCORDAM, INCLUINDO ANGELA LANFRANCHI, MD, que escreve em um breast cancer prevention institute brochura, http://www.bcpinstitute.org/reproductive.htm

 # r4 “quanto mais tarde um aborto é feito na gravidez, maior o risco de câncer de mama como tipo 1 e 2 lóbulos vão ter se formado. O aborto induzido deixa uma mulher com mais lugares para câncer de mama para começar. ”
—————-

Há um problema enorme com a aliança que foi forjada entre Komen e Planned Parenthood. É nossa recomendação que as pessoas se orientem claramente sobre o funcionamento de Komen e escolham a verdade em vez de fraudar e ignorar os fatos sobre a relação entre aborto e câncer de mama. Ao fazer isso estaríamos seguindo a Cristo, que ensina em João 8:32, “A verdade vos libertará.”

Baby Parts for Sale. Recent Articles on Fetal Harvesting

August 22, 1999

The Wholesalers 

A Division of Consultative and Diagnostic Pathology, Inc., a wholesale trafficker in aborted baby parts from American clinics.

Out of an office in West Frankfort, IL, the company’s director, Dr. Miles Jones, profits from an evidently tremendously lucrative trade – his current “Fee for Services Schedule” offers eyes and ears for $75 to $999 for a brain. 

Opening Lines was founded in 1989 to “maximize the utilization of fresh fetal tissue we process.” It offer researchers “the highest quality, most affordable, and freshest tissue prepared to your specifications and delivered in the quantities you need when you need it.” 

Sale of human tissue, including fetal tissue, is against federal law, but Opening Lines advises patients how “simple” it is to get around that. It offers to “lease space from your facility to perform the harvesting to offset your clinic’s overhead.” It also offers to train clinic staff in harvesting and then “based on volume, reimburse part or all of your employee’s salary, thereby reducing your overhead.”  

Dr. Jones is obviously adept at getting around inconvenient regulations. “We DO NOT require a copy of your IRB approval or summary of your research,” he advises prospective clientele, “and you ARE NOT required to site Opening Lines as the source of tissue when you publish your work (we believe in word of mouth advertising; if you like our service you will tell your colleagues.”) 

Opening Lines is one of two wholesale traffickers, uncovered by Mark Crutcher at Life Dynamics Inc. a pro-life in Denton Texas. The other is the Anatomic Gift Foundation (AGF). Founded in 1994 by Jim and Brenda Bardsley, it originally operated out of a double-wide trailer at the end of a dirt road on the Satilla River in Georgia where the couple also ran a catfish farm. It has since moved its headquarters to Laurel, MD and now has operations in Phoenix, AZ and Aurora, CO. 

Life Dynamics’ sources inside abortion clinics acquired “fee schedules” for both organizations. Opening Lines’ is the more detailed of the two, listing prices for organs from fetuses under eight weeks gestation and over. An “intact trunk (with/without limbs)” costs $500, for example, a liver, $150, (“30% discount if significantly fragmented”). 

The prices “in effect until December 31, 1999” may seem low, observes Mr. Crutcher, but add up all the parts and single aborted baby is worth thousands. “Our daily average case volume exceeds 1500 and we serve clinics across the United States,” says Opening Lines’ brochure. 

Mr. Crutcher says that Dr. Jones is an aggressive salesman, eager to offer him reduced rates for bulk orders.

He also said in a recent taped interview that he is actively pursuing fetal tissue sources in Mexico and in Canada.

Fetal Harvesting

 

Você já se perguntou o que fazer com as clínicas de aborto bebês abortados? Você já se perguntou como as clínicas de ganhar dinheiro extra? Você já se perguntou por que pró-abortistas insistem em manter o procedimento de aborto de nascimento parcial legal?


Colheita Fetal

Pela primeira vez, ouvir um informante revela como os bebês (às vezes ao vivo) são colhidas a partir de clínicas de aborto para revenda. Cortesia da dinâmica da vida.

Parte # 1 Um informante (disfarçado), descreve como ela (e outros na empresa trabalhou para) reuniram-se tecido fetal em clínicas de aborto para revenda posterior às empresas farmacêuticas.

Parte # 2 Descreve como ela foi apresentada com muitos fetos vivos, incluindo um par de gêmeos, falta de ar. O médico exclamou “Apanhei-te alguns bons exemplares – gêmeos” O médico então afogou-los. Outras vezes, os médicos deveriam quebrar o pescoço ou bater o feto até a morte com um par de pinças.

Part # 3 descreve como uma mulher sofrendo “de dois dias” abortos iria entrar em trabalho de parto e parto do bebê ao vivo – e o aborto deixaria os bebês sem assistência médica para morrer lentamente. Descreve como os abortistas consistentemente desencorajaram as mulheres a tentativa de manter seus filhos (se eles mudaram de idéia), forçando-os a ter um aborto após a administração de mais sedação. Também informa quantas abortistas faça avanços sexuais a pacientes.

Peças do bebê à venda
Um lote de olhos pela UPS – 30 fígados por FedEx

Por J. C. Willke, MD

Depois de lutar contra o aborto há 30 anos eu pensei que tinha visto e ouvido tudo, mas não é assim. Aqui é um novo desenvolvimento, um funcionamento coordenado à indústria de alta tecnologia para a finalidade específica de obtenção e venda de alta qualidade órgãos fetais para a pesquisa.

Partial-Birth abortos parecia ser tão horrível que a maioria de nós se perguntou como tais procedimentos poderiam ser defendidos. Muitos de nós chalked-lo para o fato de que os defensores pró-aborto e da indústria do aborto não quis dar um centímetro por medo de que sua casa inteira de cartões irá dobrar. Eu, entre outros, sentiu que a sua resistência ao proibir este procedimento horrível era o medo de um efeito dominó. Se parássemos um presente, então parava o próximo eo próximo eo próximo e não quer que ele inicie. Mas agora temos evidência de uma razão muito clara adicional por que eles querem esses abortos tardios para continuar. A razão é que este é o método que lhes dá uma intactas corpos fetais a partir da qual eles podem obter órgãos para investigação.

O outro método de tarde-termo aborto, D & E (dilatação e evacuação), envolve chegando até o útero e desmembrar o bebê vivo. Isto proporciona pedaços de órgãos macerados que são geralmente inadequadas para pesquisa fetal, transplante etc Esta pode ser a principal razão para a sua defesa veemente da prática do aborto de nascimento parcial.

A história foi quebrado recentemente pela dinâmica da vida sob a orientação de seu diretor, Mark Crutcher. Uma senhora veio a ele com uma história, que ele tenha verificado. O nome do informante não pode ser revelado, como ela ainda está envolvido no trabalho que ela expôs. Sua história é dramaticamente gravado em um vídeo recém-lançado pela dinâmica da vida. Nela, esta mulher sob o pseudônimo de Kelly, conta sua história. Sua volta é para a câmera e sua voz é eletronicamente alterado para evitar sua identificação. Ela trabalhou para “uma fonte externa, contratada com uma equipe para ir em [a final clínicas de aborto prazo] para dissecar e adquirir tecido fetal de alta qualidade de vendas.” Leia sobre como Kelly descreve sua profissão macabra. “O que fizemos foi ter um contrato com uma clínica de aborto que nos permitiria
lá em determinados dias. Gostaríamos de obter uma lista gerada a cada dia para nos dizer o que os pesquisadores de tecido, as empresas farmacêuticas e universidades estavam procurando. Então poderíamos examinar os prontuários dos pacientes. Gostaríamos de filtrar os que não querem.

Nós não utilizar espécimes que tiveram DSTs [doenças sexualmente transmissíveis] ou anormalidades fetais. Só queria que os espécimes mais perfeitos que nós poderíamos dar aos pesquisadores. “E a idade destes bebês? As vítimas foram até e mais de 30 semanas de gestação.” Nós estávamos procurando olhos, fígado, cérebro, timo [tecido linfóide ], cardíaco
sangue, sangue do cordão de sangue, a partir do fígado, mesmo sangue dos membros. ”

Somente um 2% estimado dos bebês abortados tardios tinham anormalidades. “O resto foi muito saudável. De 95% do tempo, ela estava ali apenas para se livrar do bebê.” Como muitos dos tardios – os cerca de 30 semanas – que você veria? “Provavelmente 30 ou 40 bebês por semana.”

Kelly afirmou: “Gostaríamos de vender o tecido a empreiteiros privados. Eles, por sua vez iria vender para outras universidades e pesquisadores. Houve uma grande demanda a cada semana para comprar esses tecidos fetais. Foi enviado por UPS, FedEx, Airborne e às vezes por especial correios. Às vezes, nós levaria a amostra em uma caixa para o aeroporto e colocá-lo em como carga regular, para ser pego no destino. ” E que essas empresas de navegação sabe que eles estavam transportando peças de bebê? “Não. Tudo o que sabiam era que era apenas células humanas. Mas poderia ser um feto completamente intacto. Pode ser um lote de olhos, ou 30 ou 40 fígados de sair naquele dia, ou timo

E as peças remanescentes? “Nós normalmente seria colocar isso no triturador juntamente com a placenta e sangue o material restante. Se ele era muito grande para ir pelo ralo, eles tiveram um freezer especial e quando acumulado 60 ou 70 fetos em uma caixa, que seria ser pego para incineração. ”

E então a pergunta óbvia. Kelly ainda está trabalhando para essa empresa, então por que ela veio e contar esta história para um grupo pró-vida? Um dia, quando ela estava trabalhando, “Um par de gêmeos com 24 semanas de gestação foi trazido para nós em uma panela. Eles estavam vivos. O médico voltou e disse: ‘Apanhei-te alguns bons exemplares, gêmeos. Olhei para ele e disse:
`Há algo errado aqui. Eles estão se movendo. Eu não faço isso. Isso não está no meu contrato. ” Eu lhe disse que não seria parte de tirar suas vidas. Então ele pegou uma garrafa de água estéril e derramou-o na panela até que o líquido veio acima sobre suas bocas e narizes, deixando-se afogar. Saí do quarto porque eu não conseguia ver isso. “Mas ela voltar e dissecá-los depois que eles foram mortos. Ela disse:” Foi quando eu decidi que era errado. Eu não quero estar lá quando isso aconteceu. “E então aconteceu uma e outra vez.” Às 16 semanas, todo o caminho até às vezes até 30 semanas, e tivemos nascidos vivos voltam para nós. “E então?” Em seguida, o médico quer quebrar o pescoço ou levar um par de pinças e bata até que o feto estava morto. ”

Será que o aborto nunca altera os procedimentos para obter o tipo de amostras que você precisava naquele dia? Sua resposta foi “Sim, antes dos procedimentos que eles gostariam de ver a lista do que queria obter. O [aborto] não nos levaria a dos mais completos, os dentes intactos que podia. Eles seriam entregues a nós completamente intacto. Às vezes o feto parecia estar morto, mas quando abriu a cavidade torácica, o coração ainda estava batendo. ” Ela foi perguntado se o tipo de procedimento de aborto foi intencionalmente alterados para lhe entregar um exemplar intacto, mesmo que isso significasse dar-lhe um bebê vivo? Sua resposta foi: “Sim, foi assim que nós poderíamos vender melhor o tecido, para que a nossa empresa iria ganhar mais dinheiro. No final do ano, eles dariam a clínica de volta mais dinheiro, porque temos bons exemplares.”

O procedimento de aborto de nascimento parcial envolve laminaria algas inserir no colo. Isso incha, dilatação do colo uterino. Em 24 horas, de novo Laminaria são inseridos. Isso produz mais inchaço e dilatação de modo que no terceiro dia, o bebê pode ser extraído. Durante o procedimento de dilatação, ela é enviada para um motel nas proximidades. Às vezes, o laminaria cairia para fora e ela iria entrar em trabalho de parto e entregar o bebê. E depois? “Eles chamam a enfermeira ea enfermeira iria chamar o médico que iria para o quarto de motel e pegar a mulher eo feto. Foi quando eles nos chamam e dizem: ‘Ok, nós temos um par de espécimes aqui ‘, ou’ Nós temos um espécime. ” Gostaríamos de ir [à clínica] e da amostra [o bebê] seria em um balde, às vezes vivo. Quando abrimos a caixa torácica o coração ainda estaria batendo. Às vezes a gente podia ver o movimento no balde. Estes bebês tiveram que sair vivo. Não há nenhuma maneira para eles vir a falecer. Eles estavam todos vivos. Como eles mataram ninguém sabe. Meu palpite é que eles tiveram que matá-los no balde ou colocá-los em um canto e deixá-los morrer lentamente. ” E isso foi porque o aborto tinha visto o quão forte você reagiu a vê-los mortos na frente de você? “Isso é correto. E ele não queria repetir esses casos, mas eles continuaram acontecendo de qualquer maneira, e é assim que eu vim chamar vocês [Life Dynamics].”

Finalmente, Kelly relatou como às vezes uma mulher, no meio do procedimento de dilatação, mudaria sua mente e diz que ela não queria o aborto. Nesse caso, eles iriam dizer a ela que agora é tarde demais. “Você vai fazer o aborto.” Kelly disse: “Todos os funcionários se reuniam em torno pressionando-a a fazer o aborto. No segundo dia, lhes é dada uma sedação IV, que tipo de coloca-los no que eu chamo de um cochilo Nyquil. Eles são, basicamente, sonolento , não pensar por si mesmo e isso é basicamente como eles são coagidos a continuar o procedimento. ”

Finalmente, na entrevista, ela observa que muitos dos funcionários das clínicas eram lésbicas. Quando a mãe estava inconsciente dessas mulheres seria discutir a sua genitália com comentários degradantes e por vezes até mesmo levar o número de telefone fora do seu gráfico. Então eles “chamam as semanas na estrada e pedir-lhe para sair. Não era incomum para mulheres ou homens na clínica para bater sobre essas mulheres para as datas.”

Agora sabemos por que

Agora sabemos que uma das principais razões pelas quais a indústria do aborto está lutando tão intensamente para evitar a proibição de aborto de nascimento parcial de ser promulgada. É mais do que não dar qualquer fundamento sobre o aborto por qualquer motivo. É também porque a venda de peças fetais é uma parte muito lucrativa do negócio do aborto. Essas mães pagar grandes somas de dinheiro para abortos tardios e os abortistas, por sua vez recebem muito dinheiro para esses órgãos intactos. Os espécimes modelo tem que ser: o maior – o melhor, o mais velho – o melhor, o mais vivo – o melhor.

Os atacadistas

A full-color brochura, brilhante convida aborto para “descobrir como você pode transformar a sua decisão do paciente em algo maravilhoso.” Está impresso por linhas de abertura, uma Divisão de Patologia e Diagnóstico Consultivo, Inc., uma traficante de atacado em partes do bebê abortado de clínicas americanas. Fora de um escritório em West Frankfort, IL, diretor da empresa, Dr. Miles Jones, os lucros de um comércio, evidentemente, tremendamente lucrativa – o seu “Taxa de Serviços Schedule” atual oferece olhos e ouvidos para US $ 75 a US $ 999 por um cérebro.

Linhas de abertura foi fundada em 1989, para “maximizar a utilização de tecido fetal fresco que nós processar.” Ele oferece aos investigadores “da mais alta qualidade, mais acessível, mais fresco e tecido preparado com suas especificações e entregues nas quantidades que você precisa quando você precisar dele.”

Venda de tecidos humanos, incluindo o tecido fetal, é contra a lei federal, mas as linhas de abertura aconselha os pacientes como “simples” é para contornar isso. Ele oferece a “alugar o espaço a partir de sua instalação para realizar a colheita, para compensar a sobrecarga a sua clínica.” Também oferece para treinar a equipe da clínica na colheita e, em seguida, “com base em volume, reembolsar parte ou a totalidade do salário do seu empregado, reduzindo suas despesas gerais.”

Dr. Jones é, obviamente, hábeis em contornar os regulamentos inconvenientes. “Nós não exigem uma cópia de sua aprovação IRB ou resumo de sua pesquisa”, aconselha clientela em potencial, “e você não é obrigado a linhas de abertura do site como fonte de tecido quando você publicar seu trabalho (acreditamos no boca a boca publicidade, se você gosta de nosso serviço que você vai dizer a seus colegas “).

Linhas de abertura é um dos dois traficantes no atacado, descoberto por Mark Crutcher na vida Dynamics Inc., uma pró-vida em Denton Texas. A outra é a Anatomic Presente Foundation (AGF). Fundada em 1994 por Jim e Bardsley Brenda, que inicialmente funcionava em um trailer de largura dupla no final de uma estrada de terra no Rio Satilla na Geórgia, onde o casal também administrou uma fazenda bagre. Desde então, mudou sua sede para Laurel, MD e possui operações em Phoenix, AZ e Aurora, CO

Fontes dinâmica da vida dentro de clínicas de aborto adquiridos “tabelas de preços” para ambas as organizações. Abertura de linhas ‘é a mais detalhada dos dois, enumerando preços para órgãos de fetos sob oito semanas de gestação e de novo. Um “tronco intacto (com / sem membros)” custa US $ 500, por exemplo, um fígado, US $ 150, (“30% de desconto se significativamente fragmentada”).

“Os preços em vigor até 31 de dezembro de 1999” pode parecer baixo, observa o Sr. Crutcher, mas somar todas as peças e bebê abortado único vale milhares. “Nosso volume de caso médio diário certificado exceder 1500 e servimos clínicas nos Estados Unidos”, diz o folheto linhas de abertura “.

Sr. Crutcher diz que Dr. Jones é um vendedor agressivo, ansioso para lhe oferecer taxas reduzidas para grandes encomendas. Ele também disse em uma recente entrevista gravada que ele está buscando ativamente fontes de tecido fetal no México e no Canadá.

Ever wonder what abortion clinics do with aborted babies?  Ever wonder how the clinics make extra money?  Ever wonder why pro-abortionists insist on keeping the Partial-birth abortion procedure legal? 

Fetal Harvesting

 

For the first time, hear an informant reveal how babies (sometimes live) are harvested from abortion clinics for resale. Courtesy of Life Dynamics.

 

 

Part #1 An informant (in disguise), describes how she (and others at the company she worked for) gathered fetal tissue at abortion clinics for later resale to pharmaceutical companies.

 

Part #2 Describes how she’s been presented with many live fetuses including a set of twins, gasping for air. The doctor exclaimed “Got you some good specimens – twins!”  The doctor then drowned them. Other times, doctors would break the neck or beat the fetus to death with a pair of tongs.

 

Part #3 Describes how some woman undergoing “two-day” abortions would go into labor and deliver a live baby – and the abortionist would leave the babies without medical care to die slowly.  Describes how abortionists consistently discouraged women from trying to keep their babies (if they changed their minds) by forcing them into having an abortion after administering more sedation. Also tells how many abortionists make sexual advances to patients.

A batch of eyes by UPS – 30 livers by FedEx

 

By J. C. Willke, MD

 

After fighting abortion for 30 years I thought I had seen and heard it all, but not so. Here is a new development, a coordinated high-tech industry functioning for the specific purpose of obtaining and selling high-quality fetal organs for research.

 

Partial-Birth abortions seemed to be so horrible that most of us wondered how such procedures could be defended. Many of us chalked it up to the fact that the pro-abortion advocates and the abortion industry didn’t want to give one inch for fear that their whole house of cards will fold. I, among others, felt that their resistance to forbidding this gruesome procedure was a fear of a domino effect. If we stopped this one, then we’d stop the next and the next and the next and they didn’t want it to start. But now we have evidence of a very clear additional reason why they want these late-term abortions to continue. The reason is that this is the one method that gives them intact fetal bodies from which they can obtain organs for research.

 

The other method of late-term abortion, D&E (Dilatation and Evacuation), involves reaching up into the uterus and dismembering the live baby. This delivers pieces of macerated organs that are usually unsuitable for fetal research, transplantation etc. This may be the main reason for their vehement defense of the practice of Partial-Birth abortion.

 

The story was broken recently by Life Dynamics under the guidance of its director, Mark Crutcher. A lady came to him with a story, which he has verified. The name of the informant cannot be revealed, as she is still involved in the work that she has exposed. Her story is dramatically recorded in a video just released by Life Dynamics. In it, this woman under the pseudonym, Kelly, tells her story. Her back is to the camera and her voice is electronically altered to prevent her identification. She worked for “an outside source, hired with a team to go in [to late term abortion clinics] to dissect and procure fetal tissue for high-quality sales.” Read on as Kelly describes her macabre profession. “What we did was to have a contract with an abortion clinic that would allow us to

go there on certain days. We would get a generated list each day to tell us what tissue researchers, pharmaceutical companies and universities were looking for. Then we would examine the patient charts. We would screen out the ones we didn’t want.

 

We did not use specimens that had STDs [sexually transmitted diseases] or fetal abnormalities.  We only wanted the most perfect specimens that we could give to the researchers.” And the age of these babies? The victims were up to and over 30-weeks gestation. “We were looking for eyes, livers, brains, thymuses [lymphoid tissue], cardiac

blood, cord blood, blood from the liver, even blood from the limbs.”

 

Only an estimated 2% of the late-term aborted babies had abnormalities. “The rest were very healthy. 95% of the time, she was just there to get rid of the baby.” How many of the late-term – the ones around 30 weeks – would you see? “Probably 30 or 40 babies a week.”

 

Kelly stated, “We would sell the tissue to private contractors. They in turn would sell to other universities and researchers. There was a high demand every week to buy such fetal tissues. It was shipped by UPS, FedEx, Airborne and sometimes by special couriers. Sometimes we would take the specimen in a box to the airport and put it on as regular cargo, to be picked up at the destination.” And did these shipping companies know they were transporting baby parts? “No. All they knew was that it was just human cells. But it could be a completely intact fetus. It might be a batch of eyes, or 30 or 40 livers going out that day, or thymuses

 

And the leftover parts? “We would usually put this down the garbage disposal along with the placenta and the leftover blood material. If it was too large to go down the drain, they had a special freezer and when they accumulated 60 or 70 fetuses in one box, it would be picked up for incineration.”

 

And then the obvious question. Kelly is still working for this company, so why did she come and tell this story to a pro-life group? One day when she was working, “A set of twins at 24 weeks gestation was brought to us in a pan. They were both alive. The doctor came back and said, `Got you some good specimens, twins.’ I looked at him and said,

`There’s something wrong here. They are moving. I don’t do this. This is not in my contract.’  I told him I would not be part of taking their lives. So he took a bottle of sterile water and poured it in the pan until the fluid came up over their mouths and noses, letting them drown.  I left the room because I could not watch this.” But she did go back and dissect them after they were dead. She said, “That’s when I decided it was wrong. I did not want to be there when that happened.” And then it happened again and again. “At 16 weeks, all the way up to sometimes even 30 weeks, and we had live births come back to us.” And then?  “Then the doctor would either break the neck or take a pair of tongs and beat the fetus until it was dead.”

 

Did the abortionist ever alter the procedures to get you the type of specimens you needed that day? Her answer was “Yes, before the procedures they would want to see the list of what we wanted to procure. The [abortionist] would get us the most complete, intact specimens that he could. They would be delivered to us completely intact. Sometimes the fetus appeared to be dead, but when we opened up the chest cavity, the heart was still beating.” She was asked if the type of abortion procedure was intentionally altered to deliver to you an intact specimen, even if that meant giving you a live baby? Her answer was, “Yes, that was so we could sell better tissue, so that our company would make more money. At the end of the year, they would give the clinic back more money because we got good specimens.”

 

The Partial-Birth abortion procedure involves inserting seaweed laminaria into the cervix. This swells up, dilating the cervix.  In 24 hours, new laminaria are inserted. This produces more swelling and dilatation so that by the third day the baby can be extracted. During the dilatation procedure she is sent to a nearby motel. Sometimes the laminaria would fall out and she would go into labor and deliver the baby. And then? “They would call the nurse, and the nurse would call the doctor who would go to the motel room and pick up the woman and the fetus.  That’s when they would call us and say, `Okay, we’ve got a couple of specimens here,’ or `We’ve got one specimen.’ We would go [to the clinic] and the specimen [the baby] would be in a bucket, sometimes alive. When we opened the chest cavity the heart would still be beating.  Sometimes we could see movement in the bucket. These babies had to come out alive. There’s no way for them to be coming out dead. They were all alive. How they killed them is anyone’s guess. My guess is that they had to kill them in the bucket or put them in a corner and let them die slowly.” And that was because the abortionist had seen how strongly you reacted to seeing them killed in front of you? “That’s correct. And he did not want to repeat those instances but they kept happening anyway, and that’s how I came to call you guys [Life Dynamics].”

 

Finally, Kelly related how sometimes a woman, halfway through the dilatation procedure, would change her mind and say she did not want the abortion. In such a case they would tell her that it’s too late now. “You’re going to have the abortion.” Kelly said, “All of the staff would gather around pressuring her to have the abortion. On the second day, they’re given an IV sedation, which kind of puts them into what I call a Nyquil nap. They’re just basically drowsy, not thinking for themselves and that’s basically how they are coerced into continuing the procedure.”

 

Finally, in the interview, she notes that many of the employees of the clinics were lesbians. When the mother was unconscious these women would discuss her genitalia with degrading remarks and on occasion even take the phone number off of her chart. Then they would “call her weeks down the road and ask her out for a date. It was not uncommon for women or men at the clinic to hit on these women for dates.”

 

Now We Know Why

 

Now we know one of the major reasons why the abortion industry is fighting so intensely to prevent a ban on Partial-Birth abortion from being enacted. It’s more than not giving any ground on abortion for any reason. It’s also because selling fetal parts is a very lucrative part of the abortion business. These mothers pay large sums of money for late-term abortions and the abortionists in turn are given big money for these intact organs. The model specimens have to be: the bigger – the better; the older – the better; the more alive – the better.

The Wholesalers 

 

A full-color, glossy brochure invites abortionists to “find out how you can turn your patient’s decision into something wonderful.” It’s printed by Opening Lines, A Division of Consultative and Diagnostic Pathology, Inc., a wholesale trafficker in aborted baby parts from American clinics. Out of an office in West Frankfort, IL, the company’s director, Dr. Miles Jones, profits from an evidently tremendously lucrative trade – his current “Fee for Services Schedule” offers eyes and ears for $75 to $999 for a brain. 

 

Opening Lines was founded in 1989 to “maximize the utilization of fresh fetal tissue we process.” It offer researchers “the highest quality, most affordable, and freshest tissue prepared to your specifications and delivered in the quantities you need when you need it.” 

 

Sale of human tissue, including fetal tissue, is against federal law, but Opening Lines advises patients how “simple” it is to get around that. It offers to “lease space from your facility to perform the harvesting to offset your clinic’s overhead.” It also offers to train clinic staff in harvesting and then “based on volume, reimburse part or all of your employee’s salary, thereby reducing your overhead.”  

 

Dr. Jones is obviously adept at getting around inconvenient regulations. “We DO NOT require a copy of your IRB approval or summary of your research,” he advises prospective clientele, “and you ARE NOT required to site Opening Lines as the source of tissue when you publish your work (we believe in word of mouth advertising; if you like our service you will tell your colleagues.”) 

 

Opening Lines is one of two wholesale traffickers, uncovered by Mark Crutcher at Life Dynamics Inc. a pro-life in Denton Texas. The other is the Anatomic Gift Foundation (AGF). Founded in 1994 by Jim and Brenda Bardsley, it originally operated out of a double-wide trailer at the end of a dirt road on the Satilla River in Georgia where the couple also ran a catfish farm. It has since moved its headquarters to Laurel, MD and now has operations in Phoenix, AZ and Aurora, CO. 

 

Life Dynamics’ sources inside abortion clinics acquired “fee schedules” for both organizations. Opening Lines’ is the more detailed of the two, listing prices for organs from fetuses under eight weeks gestation and over. An “intact trunk (with/without limbs)” costs $500, for example, a liver, $150, (“30% discount if significantly fragmented”). 

 

The prices “in effect until December 31, 1999” may seem low, observes Mr. Crutcher, but add up all the parts and single aborted baby is worth thousands. “Our daily average case volume exceeds 1500 and we serve clinics across the United States,” says Opening Lines’ brochure. 

 

Mr. Crutcher says that Dr. Jones is an aggressive salesman, eager to offer him reduced rates for bulk orders. He also said in a recent taped interview that he is actively pursuing fetal tissue sources in Mexico and in Canada.

Tudo faz crer num jogo antigo do mercado, armado para apenas manter aparências e finalizar com a queima da Constituição da república na Corte que deve ser sua guardiã, o Supremo Tribunal Federal.

Em 5 de junho de 2003,
http://jornal.valeparaibano.com.br/2003/06/06/geral/notasger.html
Cláudio Fonteles foi escolhido pelo presidente Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva para ser procurador-geral da República. Era subprocurador da República em Brasília, e substituiu Geraldo Brindeiro.

Desde Brindeiro até Fonteles, não se via sair das gavetas da Procuradoria-geral da República a quarta Interpelação Judicial, esta de julho de 2000, da sociedade civil representada pelo Dr. Celso Galli Coimbra, em busca de respostas do Conselho Federal de Medicina – CFM, sobre os critérios declaratórios da morte encefálica, Resolução 1480/97, que permite a captação de órgãos vitais únicos da pessoa que, sem a morte cardíaca, mantém o fluxo do sangue pelo corpo e o movimento do coração, é anestesiada para não sentir dor com a retirada de seus órgãos e tudo isso é admitido pelo órgão gestor médico como mero prognóstico.

Então, Fonteles e o Ministério Público Federal conhecem os problemas graves na declaração de morte encefálica e toda a análise da inconstitucionalidade que a envolve. Por isso, houve uma ordem superior de engavetamento desta Interpelação que só foi vencida por este advogado, Dr. Celso Galli Coimbra, em outubro de 2003, que está noticiada com destaque na Folha de São Paulo de 05.10.2003.

No dia 23 de junho de 2004, na CPI do Tráfico de Órgãos, […] foi debatido o caráter homicida do teste da apnéia (desligamento do respirador do paciente por até10 minutos) para fins de declaração de morte encefálica e maior captação de órgãos vitais únicos destinados à transplantação, quando de novo ficou demonstrado que ele podia ser a causa da morte do paciente.

<http://www.biodireito-medicina.com.br/> – em 7/2004 às 22:13

No episódio de outubro de 2006 relativo ao aborto, os pró-vida que festejam e comemoram encontros para sustentar as aparências de um faz de conta que “’respostas e acções jurídicas estão a ser preparadas”’, afastaram Dr. Celso Galli Coimbra assim que ficou evidente a façanha político-partidária da organização de “Brasil sem Aborto” que ele denunciou após a entrega intempestiva da carta aos candidatos à presidência da república, Lula e Alckmin.

O concepto é pessoa para o Direito com base na Convenção Americana de Direitos Humanos, que integra a Constituição brasileira como norma fundamental, e também pelo Código Civil. O embrião é pessoa que pode reclamar seus direitos e alimentos em juízo.

E responder em juízo à analogia, construída pelo ministro Ayres Britto, entre morte encefálica e o estágio embrionário da vida humana, como uma justificativa para sustentar a prática do aborto, no julgamento da ADIN sobre os embriões humanos, não foi feito.


O advogado melhor preparado para contestar estes pontos não foi consultado.

Advogados não faltam no meio pró-vida de Brasília, mas o que eles fizeram até agora de eficiente? Sequer a oportunidade de oferecer as razoes jurídicas da defesa à vida foi aproveitada diante de Marco Aurélio em 2008

Ayres Britto disse em seu Relatório na ADIN das CTHs que “nada há na Constituição que estebeleça o momento do início da vida humana” e nada foi feito, permitindo assim que tal afirmação ficasse sem contraponto.

Não dá para esquecer estes favores “gratuitos” que os pró-vida  fizeram aos abortistas e aos empresários de clínicas de aborto.

É preciso lembrar também:

Estatuto da Criança e do Adolescente:

Art. 7º – A criança e o adolescente têm direito a proteção à vida e à saúde, mediante a efetivação de políticas sociais públicas que permitam o nascimento e o desenvolvimento sadio e  harmonioso, em condições dignas de existência.

Assinalamos que proteger a vida não é eliminá-la por causa de patologias e a dignidade da existência começa por respeitá-la enquanto a vida existir, oferecendo-lhe todo atendimento necessário ao alcance do pleno bem-estar.

É importante destacar que a proteção à vida humana assegurada no constitucionalismo brasileiro não estabelece graus maiores ou menores de perspectiva de vida como elemento imperativo à determinar a vigência da proteção.  Se assim fosse, se fossem determinadas diferentes perspectivas de vida na Constituição, a  proteção à vida humana desapareceria para todos, e não apenas para os anencéfalos.

Hoje, a Advocacia Geral da União ergue-se para defender aborto de feto anencéfalo no STF?

09/04/2009 — Celso Galli Coimbra

a AGU (Advocacia Geral da União) não é paga com dinheiro público para defender o descumprimento da Convenção Americana de Direitos Humanos que integra o rol de direitos humanos do constitucionalismo brasileiro como cláusula pétrea e, portanto, imune até mesmo a uma reforma constitucional (PECs).  Muito menos é paga para obter — por ignorância ou não — a  legitimação da criminosa Resolução 1752/2004 do CFM, através da ADPF 54, que autoriza a retirada de órgãos dos anencéfalos depois de nascidos e, em seus considerandos, altera maliciosamente a declaração de morte para todos no Brasil para um conceito de “morte” que nunca existiu na medicina: é uma ficção homicida que vai atingir todos os brasileiros com vida e saúde também.

Além disto, a citada Resolução do CFM — uma vez legitimada — “institucionaliza” o próspero mercado do tráfico de órgãos humanos no Brasil, quando obviamente ensejará a negociação do nascimento de anencéfalo para poder retirar-lhe os órgãos.

Falar no “principio da legalidade” de parte da AGU sobre este assunto é anedótico, quando ela defende o desrespeito às normas de maior hierarquia deste país.

Morte encefálica não é morte


Membros do Conselho de Bioética do Governo dos EstadosUnidos reconhecem incerteza na declaração de morte encefálica

Recentemente, em dezembro de 2008, alguns membros do Conselho de Bioética do Governo dos Estados Unidos reconheceram oficialmente que há suficiente incerteza sobre os cuidados com a declaração da morte encefálica e sobre a questão da retirada de órgãos para transplantes [1].

Conforme já foi provado no Brasil pela via judicial e perante o Ministério Público Federal, desde o início desta década, o fato mais relevante neste assunto, essencialmente jurídico também, é que sem consenso nas fontes formadoras do conhecimento médico internacional, não é possível manter uma declaração médica, com base em meros postulados dogmáticos de  autoridade do CFM, declaração que é do fim da vida de uma pessoa, não de uma simples gripe, e ainda com o objetivo de beneficiar a sobrevida de outro paciente através da retirada de seus órgãos. Portanto, existem interesses públicos e notórios em “declarar” a morte do paciente traumatizado encefálico, esteja ele vivo ou morto mesmo.

Morte encefálica não é morte


Morte encefálica não é morte: neurologistas, filósofos, neonatologistas, juristas e bioeticistas unânimes na Conferência “Signs of Life” de Roma, de fevereiro de 2009

27/02/2009 — Celso Galli Coimbra

A Conferência “Sinais da Vida” de Roma, de fevereiro de 2009, teve caráter médico, científico e jurídico, com participantes reconhecidos internacionalmente como autoridades em suas profissões, mesmo assim a mídia brasileira não noticiou sobre este importante evento para não comprometer o genocídio da medicina transplantadora no Brasil, que é uma indústria da morte bilionária. O constitucionalismo brasileiro determina o direito à informação e não permite o tráfico de órgãos. Quando emfuturo próximo os fatos relativos ao homicídio de pacientes traumatizados encefálicos estiver imposto, pois existentes já são e de conhecimento, inclusive oficial, do Ministério Público Federal (que terá muito o que explicar quanto ao significado da frase “não contrariamos políticas de Estado”), os responsáveis pela morte destes inúmeros pacientes dentro dos hospitais brasileiros, com o exclusivo objetivo de beneficiar a sobrevida de pacientes de médicos transplantadores, poderão responder civil e criminalmente diante das famílias induzidas a erro mortal na “doação” de órgãos de seus filhos e parentes, tanto pela ação como pela omissão, inclusive de informações, desde 1997 neste país.

PNDH3: Programa Nacional de Direitos Humanos, o PNDH3 de Lula e Dilma para ser colocado em execução em 2011. Essa transformação é a revolução ao contrario, quer dizer, é contraria a democracia. O Estado Democrático de Direito tem três poderes iguais em força e relevância independentes entre si. No Brasil domina a política infame dos caminhos da ilegalidade. Hoje, brasileiros estão a viver a tirania de um governo que corrompeu todas as instituições públicas e todos os poderes da União. Não existe, agora, nessas condições de partidarismo político ou de interesses economicos patrimoniais individualizados a comandar as funções públicas do Estado brasileiro, sem a devida observação e respeito à Lei Maior, sequer uma democracia forjada. Estas condições da realidade do governo Lula-Dilma confirmam a tirania. A realidade é a prova.

Pode o juiz autorizar um aborto? – Por Pe. Luiz Carlos Lodi da Cruz

Pode o juiz autorizar um aborto?

(nenhum juiz está acima da lei)

Por Pe. Luiz Carlos Lodi da Cruz
Presidente do Pró-Vida de Anápolis

Se o aborto é ilegal, a autorização judicial é inútil; se o aborto fosse legal, ela seria desnecessária. Em qualquer hipótese, não faz sentido pedir a um juiz que “autorize” um aborto. No entanto, generalizou-se a crença de que um juiz pode autorizar, ou até mesmo ordenar (!) a prática de tal crime. Diante de um alvará para matar[1], há médicos que se sentem intimidados, como se fossem “obrigados” a executar a sentença de morte decretada pelo magistrado.

O papel da imprensa tem sido importante em difundir a desinformação. Por exemplo: em 17/04/2011, domingo, a primeira página do jornal Diário da Manhã trazia a manchete: “Aborto dentro da lei: Justiça goiana autoriza mais de 20 interrupções de gravidez de fetos com má formação severa”. Segundo a matéria, “mais de 20 autorizações judiciais permitindo aborto de fetos com má-formação severa foram concedidas em Goiânia na última década”[2]. As crianças abortadas “judicialmente” não foram somente as portadoras de anencefalia. Vários outros bebês, com doenças menos sérias, como a síndrome de body-stalk, síndrome de Potter, encefalocele occipital e síndrome de Edwards foram condenados ao extermínio. A futilidade do motivo chegou ao auge quando em 23/03/2011 um juiz “autorizou” o abortamento de uma criança normal (!), sob a alegação de que ela poderia sofrer algum dano futuro (!) em virtude do tratamento de câncer a que seria submetida sua mãe[3].

Tentemos esclarecer a questão.

1. No Brasil o aborto é crime?

Sim. Um crime contra a pessoa e contra a vida, tipificado nos artigos124 a 128 do Código Penal.

2. Há algum caso em que o aborto não seja crime?

Não. No direito brasileiro, todo aborto diretamente provocado é crime.

3. E se não houver outro meio, a não ser o aborto, para salvar a vida da gestante?

Nesse caso, que aliás não ocorre, o aborto continua sendo crime.

4. E se a gravidez resultar de estupro e a gestante consentir no aborto?

Nesse caso, o aborto continua sendo crime.

5. Mas eu ouvi dizer que nos casos acima o aborto era legal…

De maneira alguma! Nessas duas hipóteses (art. 128, CP), o criminoso “não se pune”. Mas o aborto continua sendo crime.

6. Pode haver casos em que um criminoso fique sem punição?

Sim. A lei pode, após o fato consumado, deixar de aplicar a pena por razões de política criminal. Em Direito, isso recebe o nome de escusa absolutória. As escusas determinam a não punição do criminoso. Mas o crime permanece.

7. Dê alguns exemplos de escusa absolutória.

Se um filho furta de seu pai, comete crime de furto, mas fica isento de pena (art. 181, CP). Se a mãe esconde seu filho delinquente da polícia, comete crime de favorecimento pessoal, mas fica isenta de pena (art. 348,§2º, CP). Não se pode, porém, falar de “furto legal” ou de “favorecimento pessoal legal”.

8. O Estado pode favorecer essas condutas em que a pena não se aplica?

Claro que não. Imagine o absurdo que seria as escolas públicas ensinarem às crianças a maneira mais segura e eficiente de surrupiar as coisas do papai e da mamãe, a pretexto de que tal furto seria “legal”. Ou então pense no disparate que seria uma penitenciária reunir as mães dos detentos e explicar-lhes como escondê-los da polícia, a pretexto de que tal favorecimento pessoal seria “legal”.

9. O Estado pode financiar a prática do aborto nos casos em que a pena não se aplica?

De modo algum. O Sistema Único de Saúde não pode usar o dinheiro público para a prática de crime, haja ou não pena aplicada ao criminoso.

10. Cite juristas que sustentam a doutrina de que não há aborto legal no Brasil.

Além do grande Walter Moraes (já falecido), temos Ricardo Henry Marques Dip, Jaques de Camargo Penteado, Vicente de Abreu Amadei, José Geraldo Barreto Fonseca, Paulo de Tarso Machado Brandão, Maria Helena Diniz e Ives Gandra da Silva Martins.

11. Existe escusa absolutória em caso de má-formação fetal?

Não. O médico que pratica um aborto em razão de uma deficiência da criança por nascer (aborto eugênico) incorre nas penas dos artigos125 a127 do Código Penal.

12. Que valor tem uma autorização judicial para um aborto?

Nenhum valor. O aborto continua sendo crime, haja ou não a cumplicidade de um juiz.

13. Se o aborto for praticado, o juiz pode ser punido?

Pode e deve. “O resultado, de que depende a existência do crime, somente é imputável a quem lhe deu causa. Considera-se causa a ação ou omissão sem a qual o resultado não teria ocorrido” (art. 13, CP). Ora, se sem a “autorização” o aborto não teria sido praticado, ela, embora inválida, foi causa do crime. Por meio dela, o juiz concorreu para o crime. E “quem, de qualquer modo, concorre para o crime incide nas penas a este cominadas, na medida de sua culpabilidade” (art. 29, CP).

14. Quem é competente para julgar um juiz de direito que participa de um crime de aborto?

O Tribunal de Justiça do seu Estado (art. 96, III, CF).

15. Houve algum juiz punido por ter autorizado um aborto?

Não. Embora muitas vezes os tribunais tenham concedido ordem de habeas corpus em favor do nascituro, por considerarem ilegal a “autorização” para o aborto, em nenhum caso o juiz foi punido. Nem sequer foi denunciado.

16. A quem cabe denunciar um juiz por crime perante o Tribunal de Justiça?

Cabe ao Ministério Público, por meio do Procurador Geral de Justiça, oferecer a denúncia, ou seja, iniciar a ação penal contra o juiz (art. 29, V, Lei 8625/93).

17. O que se pode fazer para pôr fim a essa impunidade?

Solicitar a um parlamentar que represente criminalmente contra tais juízes.

Cobrança de taxa de acompanhamento no parto por hospitais privados é legal

Cobrança de taxa de acompanhamento no parto por hospitais privados é legal

A Justiça Federal de Mato Grosso através do juiz Dr. Jeferson Sheneider da 2ª Vara negou o pedido de liminar do Ministério Público do Federal, que requeria a suspensão da cobrança da taxa de acompanhamento no parto em hospitais privados.
 
A Ação Civil Pública proposta pelo MPF com base na Lei 11.108/2005, que alterou a Lei n.º 8.080/90, na Resolução Normativa n.º 167/2007 e pela Resolução da ANVISA n.º 36/08, dizia que a cobrança de taxa de acompanhamento de parturiente no acolhimento, trabalho de parto, parto e pós-parto, seria ilegal. E determinava que fosse afixados cartazes informativos em locais de grande circulação, em especial na recepção, pronto-atendimento e setor financeiro, que é direito da gestante ter acompanhamento no acolhimento, trabalho de parto,  parto e pós-parto imediato.
 
Contudo, em nenhum momento os hospitais que figuraram como réus no processo questionam ou proíbem a presença de acompanhante da parturiente.   A questão central seria a obrigatoriedade do fornecimento gratuito pelos hospitais serviço que é oneroso, e portanto, gera um custo que engloba roupa esterilizada, estrutura física e pessoal preparado, ou seja, a legalidade da cobrança da taxa de acompanhamento pelos hospitais da rede privada.
Conforme o entendimento da Justiça, não há lei que proíba a cobrança de Taxa de Acompanhamento da Parturiente pelos hospitais particulares, cabendo às operadoras de plano de saúde e ao SUS – Sistema Único de Saúde – a obrigatoriedade de custear a referida taxa de serviço para seus usuários. No caso de parto particular ou não cobertura pelo plano de saúde, a taxa deve ser arcada pela paciente.

A decisão saiu em 11 de maio de 2011. O processo é  nº 22841-39.2010.4.01.36.00.

Abortion Causes Mental Disorders: New Zealand Study

May Require Doctors To Do Fewer Abortions Abort –

Pro-Choice Researcher Says Some Journals Rejected Politically Volatile Findings Pro-Choice Pesquisador diz que alguns Revistas Rejeitada Politicamente Volátil Apreciação

Special to LifeSiteNews.com Especial para LifeSiteNews.com

A study in New Zealand that tracked approximately 500 women from birth to 25 years of age has confirmed that young women who have abortions subsequently experience elevated rates of suicidal behaviors, depression, substance abuse, anxiety, and other mental problems. Um estudo realizado na Nova Zelândia que acompanhou cerca de 500 mulheres desde o nascimento até aos 25 anos de idade, confirmou que as mulheres jovens que têm elevadas taxas de abortos posteriormente experiência de comportamentos suicidas, depressão, dependência química, ansiedade e outros problemas mentais.

Most significantly, the researchers–led by Professor David M. Fergusson, who is the director of the longitudinal Christchurch Health and Development Study–found that the higher rate of subsequent mental problems could not be explained by any pre-pregnancy differences in mental health, which had been regularly evaluated over the course of the 25- year study. Mais significativamente, os pesquisadores – liderados pelo Professor David M. Fergusson, que é o diretor do longitudinal Christchurch Health and Development Study – constatou que a maior taxa de problemas mentais posteriores não poderiam ser explicadas por qualquer pré-gravidez diferenças em mental saúde, que tinha sido regularmente avaliado no decurso da 25 – year study.

FINDINGS SURPRISE PRO-CHOICE RESEARCHERS CONSTATAÇÕES surpresa PRO-ESCOLHA INVESTIGADORES

According to Fergusson, the researchers had undertaken the study anticipating that they would be able to confirm the view that any problems found after abortion would be traceable to mental health problems that had existed before the abortion.  At first glance, it appeared that their data would confirm this hypothesis.  The data showed that women who became pregnant before age 25 were more likely to have experienced family dysfunction and adjustment problems, were more likely to have left home at a young age, and were more likely to have entered a cohabiting relationship. Segundo a Fergusson, os pesquisadores haviam realizado o estudo prevendo que eles seriam capazes de confirmar a opinião que os problemas encontrados após aborto deverá ser feita para os problemas de saúde mental que já existiam antes do aborto. À primeira vista, parecia que os dados seriam confirmar esta hipótese. Os dados mostraram que as mulheres que engravidaram antes de menos de 25 anos eram mais propensos a ter experimentado disfunção familiar eo ajustamento problemas, eram mais susceptíveis de ter uma casa na esquerda tenra idade, e foram mais propensos a ter introduzido uma coabitação relacionamento.

However, when these and many other factors were taken into account, the findings showed that women who had abortions were still significantly more likely to experience mental health problems.  Thus, the data contradicted the hypothesis that prior mental illness or other “pre-disposing” factors could explain the differences. No entanto, quando estes e muitos outros factores foram tidos em conta, os resultados mostraram que as mulheres que tiveram abortos foram ainda significativamente mais propensos a experimentar problemas de saúde mental. Assim, os dados contradizem a hipótese de que antes da doença mental ou outro “pré-eliminação” fatores poderiam explicar as diferenças.

“We know what people were like before they became pregnant,” Fergusson told The New Zealand Herald.  “We take into account their social background, education, ethnicity, previous mental health, exposure to sexual abuse, and a whole mass of factors.” “Sabemos que as pessoas eram como eles ficaram grávidas antes,” disse Fergusson A Nova Zelândia Herald. “Levamos em conta a sua origem social, educação, etnia, anterior a saúde mental, a exposição ao abuso sexual, e toda uma massa de fatores.”

The data persistently pointed toward the politically unwelcome conclusion that abortion may itself be the cause of subsequent mental health problems.  So Fergusson presented his results to New Zealand’s Abortion Supervisory Committee, which is charged with ensuring that abortions in that country are conducted in accordance with all the legal requirements. Os dados apontaram persistentemente politicamente indesejável para a conclusão de que o aborto poderá ser a causa de posteriores problemas de saúde mental. Então Fergusson apresentaram seus resultados para a Nova Zelândia do Aborto Comité de Fiscalização, que está encarregado de assegurar que o aborto no país são realizados em conformidade com todas as os requisitos legais. According to The New Zealand Herald, the committee told Fergusson that it would be “undesirable to publish the results in their ‘unclarified’ state.” Segundo o The New Zealand Herald, a comissão Fergusson disse que seria “indesejável para publicar os resultados na sua ‘unclarified” estado “.

Despite his own pro-choice political beliefs, Fergusson responded to the committee with a letter stating that it would be “scientifically irresponsible” to suppress the findings simply because they touched on an explosive political issue. Apesar de suas próprias convicções políticas pró-escolha, Fergusson respondeu à comissão com uma carta afirmando que seria “irresponsável cientificamente” para suprimir os resultados simplesmente porque tocou em uma questão política explosiva.

In an interview about the findings with an Australian radio host, Fergusson stated: “I remain pro-choice. I am not religious. I am an atheist and a rationalist. The findings did surprise me, but the results appear to be very robust because they persist across a series of disorders and a series of ages. . . . Abortion is a traumatic life event; that is, it involves loss, it involves grief, it involves difficulties. And the trauma may, in fact, predispose people to having mental illness.” Em uma entrevista sobre os resultados com um australiano rádio anfitrião, Fergusson declarou: “Continuo pró-escolha. Eu não sou religioso. Sou um ateu e um racionalista. As conclusões não me surpreende, mas os resultados parecem ser bastante robusto, pois eles persistirem em toda uma série de transtornos e uma série de idades…. O aborto é um evento traumático vida, isto é, trata-se de perda, que envolve dor, envolve dificuldades. E o trauma pode, na verdade, predispor as pessoas a ter doença mental. “
JOURNALS REJECT THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT RESULTS REVISTAS REJEITAR OS RESULTADOS politicamente incorrecto

The research team of the Christchurch Health and Development Study is used to having its studies on health and human development accepted by the top medical journals on first submission.  After all, the collection of data from birth to adulthood of 1,265 children born in Christchurch is one of the most long-running and valuable longitudinal studies in the world.  But this study was the first from the experienced research team that touched on the contentious issue of abortion. A equipe de pesquisa do Christchurch Saúde e Desenvolvimento Estudo é utilizada para ter seus estudos sobre a saúde e desenvolvimento humano aceite pelo topo revistas médicas na primeira apresentação. Afinal de contas, a recolha de dados desde o nascimento até à idade adulta de crianças nascidas em 1265 Christchurch é um da mais longa e valiosa de estudos longitudinais em todo o mundo. Porém, este estudo foi o primeiro a partir da investigação experiente equipe que tocou na questão polémica do aborto.

Ferguson said the team “went to four journals, which is very unusual for us — we normally get accepted the first time.” Ferguson disse que a equipa “deslocou-se a quatro revistas, o que é muito incomum para nós – nós normalmente aceite receber a primeira vez.” Finally, the fourth journal accepted the study for publication. Por último, a quarta revista aceita para publicação do estudo.

Although he still holds a pro-choice view, Fergusson believes women and doctors should not blindly accept the unsupported claim that abortion is generally harmless or beneficial to women.  He appears particularly upset by the false assurances of abortion’s safety given by the American Psychological Association (APA). Embora ele ainda mantém uma perspectiva pró-escolha, Fergusson considera as mulheres e os médicos não devem aceitar cegamente o unsupported alegação de que o aborto é geralmente inofensiva ou benéfica para as mulheres. Ele parece particularmente preocupado pelas falsas garantias de segurança do aborto dadas pela American Psychological Association ( APA).

In a 2005 statement, the APA claimed that “well-designed studies” have found that “the risk of psychological harm is low.” Em 2005 uma declaração, a APA afirmou que “bem concebido estudos” constataram que “o risco de dano psicológico é baixo.” In the discussion of their results, Fergusson and his team note that the APA’s position paper ignored many key studies showing evidence of abortion’s harm and looked only at a selective sample of studies that have serious methodological flaws. Na discussão dos seus resultados, Fergusson e sua equipe nota que a posição da APA papel fundamental ignorados muitos estudos que mostram evidências de efeitos nocivos do aborto e olhou apenas em uma amostra seletiva de estudos que têm graves falhas metodológicas.

Fergusson told reporters that “it verges on scandalous that a surgical procedure that is performed on over one in 10 women has been so poorly researched and evaluated, given the debates about the psychological consequences of abortion.” Fergusson disse aos jornalistas que “é escandaloso que raia sobre um procedimento cirúrgico que é realizado em mais de um em cada 10 mulheres tem sido tão mal estudadas e avaliadas, tendo em conta os debates sobre as conseqüências psicológicas do aborto.”

Following Fergusson’s complaints about the selective and misleading nature of the 2005 APA statement, the APA removed the page from their Internet site.  The statement can still be found through a web archive service, however. Na sequência de queixas sobre o Fergusson selectiva e enganosa natureza da declaração APA 2005, a APA removido da página de seu site da Internet. A declaração ainda pode ser encontrado através de um serviço de arquivo na web, no entanto.

STUDY MAY HAVE PROFOUND INFLUENCE ON MEDICINE, LAW, AND POLITICS Estudo pode ter influência profunda sobre medicina, direito, E POLÍTICA

The reaction to the publication of the Christchurch study is heating up the political debate in the United States.  The study was introduced into the official record at the senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito. A reacção à publicação do estudo Christchurch é aquecer o debate político nos Estados Unidos. O estudo foi introduzido no registo oficial no senado confirmação audições Supremo Tribunal de Justiça Samuel Alito. Also, a US congressional subcommittee chaired by Representative Mark Souder (R-IN) has asked the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to report on what efforts the NIH is undertaking to confirm or refute Fergusson’s findings. Além disso, uma subcomissão E.U. Congresso presidido pelo representante Mark Souder (R-IN) convidou o National Institutes of Health (NIH) para informar sobre o que está a empreender esforços do NIH para confirmar ou refutar conclusões da Fergusson.

The impact of the study in other countries may be even more profound. O impacto do estudo em outros países pode ser ainda mais profunda. According to The New Zealand Herald, the Christchurch study may require doctors in New Zealand to certify far fewer abortions.  Approximately 98 percent of abortions in New Zealand are done under a provision in the law that only allows abortion when “the continuance of the pregnancy would result in serious danger (not being danger normally attendant upon childbirth) to the life, or to the physical or mental health, of the woman or girl.” Segundo o The New Zealand Herald, o estudo pode exigir Christchurch médicos na Nova Zelândia para certificar muito menos abortos. Aproximadamente 98 por cento dos abortos na Nova Zelândia são feitas ao abrigo de uma disposição na lei que só permite o aborto quando “a continuação da gravidez seria resultar em perigo grave (não sendo normalmente perigo tratador após parto) para a vida, ou para a saúde física ou psíquica, da mulher ou menina. “

Doctors performing abortions in Great Britain face a similar legal problem.  Indeed, the requirement to justify an abortion is even higher in British law.  Doctors there are only supposed to perform abortions when the risks of physical or psychological injury from allowing the pregnancy to continue are “greater than if the pregnancy was terminated.” Médicos realização de abortos na Grã-Bretanha enfrentam um problema jurídico semelhante. Na verdade, o requisito para justificar um aborto ainda é maior no direito britânico. Médicos só existem supostamente para realizar abortos quando os riscos de lesão física ou psicológica de permitir que a gravidez são para continuar “maior do que se a gravidez foi encerrado.”

According to researcher Dr. David Reardon, who has published more than a dozen studies investigating abortion’s impact on women, Fergusson’s study reinforces a growing body of literature showing that doctors in New Zealand, Britain and elsewhere face legal and ethical obligations to discourage or refuse contraindicated abortions. Segundo o pesquisador Dr. David Reardon, que já publicou mais de uma dúzia de estudos investigando o impacto do aborto sobre as mulheres, Fergusson do estudo reforça um crescente corpo de literatura mostrando que os médicos na Nova Zelândia, Grã-Bretanha e noutros países enfrentam obrigações legais e éticas para desencorajar ou recusar contra abortos.

“Fergusson’s study underscores that fact that evidence-based medicine does not support the conjecture that abortion will protect women from ‘serious danger’ to their mental health,” said Reardon.  “Instead, the best evidence indicates that abortion is more likely to increase the risk of mental health problems.  Physicians who ignore this study may no longer be able to argue that they are acting in good faith and may therefore be in violation of the law.” “Fergusson do estudo ressalta que o fato de que a medicina baseada em evidências não suporta a conjectura de que o aborto vai proteger as mulheres de” grave perigo “para sua saúde mental”, disse Reardon. “Pelo contrário, a melhor evidência indica que o aborto é mais provável que o aumento risco de problemas de saúde mental. Physicians ignorar que este estudo pode já não ser capaz de argumentar que eles estão agindo de boa fé e podem, portanto, estar em violação da lei. “

“Record-based studies in Finland and the United States have conclusively proven that the risk of women dying in the year following an abortion is significantly higher than the risk of death if the pregnancy is allowed to continue to term,” said Reardon, who directs the Elliot Institute, a research organization based in Springfield, Illinois.  “So the hypothesis that the physical risks of childbirth surpass the risks associated with abortion is no longer tenable.  That means most abortion providers have had to look to mental health advantages to justify abortion over childbirth.” “Gravar com base em estudos na Finlândia e os Estados Unidos têm provado conclusivamente que o risco das mulheres que morrem no ano seguinte um aborto é significativamente maior do que o risco de morte se a gravidez é autorizada a continuar a prazo”, disse Reardon, que dirige o Elliot Institute, uma organização de investigação com base em Springfield, Illinois. “Portanto, a hipótese de que os riscos físicos de parto superar os riscos associados com o aborto já não é defensável. Isso significa que mais tiveram aborto prestadores de olhar para a saúde mental vantagens para justificar o aborto ao longo do parto. “

But Reardon now believes that alternative for recommending abortion no longer passes scientific muster, either. Reardon Mas agora acredita que a alternativa para recomendar o aborto já não passa científica muster, quer.

“This New Zealand study, with its unsurpassed controls for possible alternative explanations, confirms the findings of several recent studies linking abortion to higher rates of psychiatric hospitalization. depression, generalized anxiety disorder, substance abuse, suicidal tendencies, poor bonding with and parenting of later children, and sleep disorders,” he said.  “It should inevitably lead to a change in the standard of care offered to women facing problem pregnancies.” “Este estudo Nova Zelândia, com a sua insuperável possíveis explicações alternativas para o controlo, confirma as conclusões de vários estudos recentes ligando aborto para taxas mais elevadas de internação psiquiátrica. Depressão, transtorno de ansiedade generalizada, abuso de substâncias, tendências suicidas, pobres e com vínculo de parentalidade mais tarde crianças, e distúrbios do sono “, disse ele.” Há inevitavelmente levar a uma mudança no padrão de atendimento oferecido às mulheres enfrentam problema gravidez. “
SOME WOMEN MAY BE AT GREATER RISK Algumas mulheres podem estar em maior risco

Reardon, a biomedical ethicist, is an advocate of “evidence- based medicine”–a movement in medical training that encourages the questioning of “routine, accepted practices” which have not been proven to be helpful in scientific trials.  If one uses the standards applied in evidence-based medicine, Reardon says, one can only conclude that there is insufficient evidence to support the view that abortion is generally beneficial to women.  Instead, the opposite appears to be more likely. Reardon, um biomédico ethicist, é um defensor da “medicina baseada em evidências” – um movimento de formação médica que encoraja o questionamento de “rotina, aceite práticas” que não tenham sido provado ser útil em estudos científicos. Se um usa o normas aplicadas na medicina baseada em evidências, Reardon diz, só podemos concluir que não há provas suficientes para apoiar a opinião de que o aborto é, geralmente benéfica para as mulheres. Em vez disso, o oposto parece ser mais provável.

“It is true that the practice of medicine is both an art and a science,” Reardon said. “É verdade que a prática da medicina é simultaneamente uma arte e uma ciência”, disse Reardon. “But given the current research, doctors who do an abortion in the hope that it will produce more good than harm for an individual woman can only justify their decisions by reference to the art of medicine, not the science.” “Mas, dada a atual pesquisa, os médicos que fazem um aborto, na esperança de que ele irá produzir mais dano do que bom para um indivíduo mulher só pode justificar as suas decisões por referência à arte da medicina, e não a ciência.”

According to Reardon, the best available medical evidence shows that it is easier for a woman to adjust to the birth of an unintended child than it is to adjust to the emotional turmoil caused by an abortion. Segundo a Reardon, a melhor evidência médica disponível mostra que é mais fácil para uma mulher a ajustar-se ao nascimento de uma criança que não é inesperada para ajustar-se ao turbilhão emocional causado por um aborto.

“We are social beings, so it is easier for people to adjust to having a new relationship in one’s life than to adjust to the loss of a relationship,” he said.  “In the context of abortion, adjusting to the loss is especially difficult if there any unresolved feelings of attachment, grief, or guilt.” “Nós somos seres sociais, por isso é mais fácil para as pessoas terem de se ajustar a uma nova relação de uma vida do que para regular a perda de um relacionamento”, disse ele. “No contexto do aborto, que adapta à perda é especialmente difícil se houver qualquer resolver sentimentos de apego, luto, ou culpa. “

By using known risk factors, the women who are at greatest risk of severe reactions to abortion could be easily identified, according to Reardon.  If this were done, some women who are at highest risk of negative reactions might opt for childbirth instead of abortion. Ao utilizar conhecidos fatores de risco, as mulheres que estão em maior risco de reacções graves ao aborto poderiam ser facilmente identificados, de acordo com Reardon. Se isso foi feito, algumas mulheres que estão em maior risco de reacções negativas podem optar por parto, em vez de aborto.

In a recent article published in The Journal of Contemporary Health Law and Policy, Reardon identified approximately 35 studies that had identified statistically validated risk factors that most reliably predict which women are most likely to report negative reactions. Em um recente artigo publicado no The Journal of Contemporary Health Law and Policy, Reardon identificou cerca de 35 estudos que tinha identificado validado estatisticamente que a maioria dos fatores de risco fiavelmente predizer quais as mulheres têm maior probabilidade de relatar reações negativas.

“Risk factors for maladjustment were first identified in a 1973 study published by Planned Parenthood,” Reardon said. “Os fatores de risco para desajuste foram inicialmente identificados em 1973 um estudo publicado pela Planned Parenthood”, disse Reardon. “Since that time, numerous other researchers have further advanced our knowledge of the risk factors which should be used to screen women at highest risk.  These researchers have routinely recommended that the risk factors should be used by doctors to identify women who would benefit from more counseling, either so they can avoid contraindicated abortions or so they can receive better followup care to help treat negative reactions.” “Desde esse tempo, muitos outros pesquisadores têm mais avançadas dos nossos conhecimentos sobre os fatores de risco que deve ser utilizado para rastrear as mulheres sob maior risco. Estes investigadores têm rotineiramente recomendado que os fatores de risco devem ser utilizadas pelos médicos para identificar as mulheres que se beneficiariam de uma maior aconselhamento, quer para que possam evitar ou contra o aborto, para que possam receber cuidados followup melhor para ajudar a tratar reações negativas. “

Feeling pressured by others to consent to the abortion, having moral beliefs that abortion is wrong, or having already developed a strong maternal attachment to the baby are three of the most common risk factors, Reardon says. Sentindo-se pressionados pelos outros para consentimento ao aborto, com convicções morais que o aborto é errado, ou já ter desenvolvido um forte vínculo materno para o bebê são três dos principais fatores de risco comuns, Reardon diz.

While screening makes sense, Reardon says that in practice, screening for risk factors is rare for two reasons. Embora a análise faz sentido, Reardon diz que, na prática, o rastreio de factores de risco é rara, por duas razões.

“First, there are aberrations in the law that shield abortion providers from any liability for emotional complications following an abortion,” he said.  “This loophole means that abortion clinics can save time and money by substituting one- size-fits-all counseling for individualized screening. “Em primeiro lugar, existem aberrações na lei que escudo aborto fornecedores a partir de qualquer responsabilidade por complicações emocionais após um aborto”, disse. “Esta lacuna significa que o aborto clínicas podem poupar tempo e dinheiro, substituindo uma de tamanho único para todos aconselhamento para individualizadas rastreio.

“The second obstacle in the way of screening is ideological. Many abortion providers insist that it is not their job to try to figure out whether an abortion is more likely to hurt than help a particular woman. They see their role as to ensure that any woman who wants an abortion is provided one.” “O segundo obstáculo no caminho do rastreio é ideológica. Muitos fornecedores insistem em que o aborto não é seu trabalho para tentar descobrir se um aborto é mais susceptível de ferir do que ajudar uma mulher especial. Eles vêem o seu papel como para garantir que qualquer mulher que deseja um aborto é fornecido um “.

“This ‘buyer beware’ mentality is actually inconsistent with medical ethics,” Reardon said. “Este” comprador beware “mentalidade é realmente inconsistente com ética médica”, disse Reardon. “Actually, the ethic governing most abortion providers’ services is no different than that of the abortionists: ‘If you have the money, we’ll do the abortion.’ “Na verdade, a ética que regem a maioria aborto dos prestadores de serviços não é diferente do que o do abortionists: ‘Se você tiver o dinheiro, nós vamos fazer o aborto.” Women deserve better.  They deserve to have doctors who act like doctors. That means doctors who will give good medical advice based on the best available evidence as applied to each patient’s individual risk profile.” As mulheres merecem melhor. Eles merecem a ter médicos que atuam como médicos. Isso significa que médicos que vai dar bons conselhos médicos baseados nas melhores evidências disponíveis, tal como é aplicado para cada paciente individual do perfil de risco. “

Fergusson also believes that the same rules that apply to other medical treatments should apply to abortion. Fergusson acredita também que as mesmas regras que se aplicam a outros tratamentos médicos, deve aplicar-se ao aborto. “If we were talking about an antibiotic or an asthma risk, and someone reported adverse reactions, people would be advocating further research to evaluate risk,” he said in the New Zealand Herald. “Se estivéssemos falando de um antibiótico ou um risco asma, e alguém relatadas as reacções adversas, as pessoas seriam defendem uma maior investigação para avaliar os riscos”, disse ele na Nova Zelândia Herald. “I can see no good reason why the same rules don’t apply to abortion.” “Não vejo qualquer razão para as mesmas regras não se aplicam ao aborto.”
