Shocking as it may seem, U.S. government doctors once thought it was fine to experiment on disabled people and prison inmates. Such experiments included giving hepatitis to mental patients in Connecticut, squirting a pandemic flu virus up the noses.......

DR. Frankenstein is alive and well! Everything that medical science knows was discovered by trial and error experiments, why do you think that they call themselves medical practiceners?
My husband was part of the "electric koolaid" tests in '69 when he was 10 to see what would happen to the future leaders of America!
We are all lab rats to our Frankenstein government, and pharmecutical witchesbrews prove that, as they are recalled one by one, leaving a wake of victims in their path!
On one hand science is saying that the world is over populated, but on the other hand they are selling temporay immortality, it is all about money, and statice, for life means nothing to these beasts!

The more individual rights are disrespected or disregarded, the more likely this kind of thing can happen. And I suspect Rose is right to question if this still is still happening.

We know testing is being done in the medical field by large corporations who talk poor and uneducated families into accepting small payments in return for signing over certain rights that put them at serious risk for health issues. In New York tenant buildings, tenants signed agreements allowing their apartments to be sprayed for pests, not knowing that they and their children were being subjected to experimental doses of toxins that had not been approved by the EPA.

The EPA itself says that "before a company can sell or distribute any pesticide in the United States of America, EPA must review studies on the pesticide to determine that it will not pose unreasonable risks to human health or the environment. Once EPA has made that determination, it will license or register that pesticide for use in strict accordance with label directions. "

By tricking people into signing agreements that were unclear and convoluted, unethical companies are able to legally obtain these studies by using our American citizens as tests subjects without risk to the companies and often with serious health consequences for the unwitting guinea pigs.

and so it continues....

I think we're still being as modern day guinea about all those genetically modified foods that are being rushed to markets without fully knowing the effects they will have on our bodies? All this without our permission. I would call this unauthorized testing, wouldn't you?

Anyone who wants to know about the history of experimentation on human subjects should enter the term
"Unit 731" into a search engine to find out just how far the barbarism has gone. 2,500 American POW's as well as 300,000 plus Chinese prisoners were subjected to extreme cruelty when the Imperial Japanese Army conducted biological weapons tests upon them. Besides being infected with resistant strains of various diseases, prisoners were subjected to frequent beatings, starvation, and other forms of torture. Testing was conducted upon live POW's to see how long it would take for them to freeze in a freezer unit; limbs would be dissected without anesthetic to examine the progressive damage of the freezing process. Chinese women were also imprisoned in the camp and subjected to rape. Subsequently, they would frequently have their unborn children removed from their bodies during dissections without anesthetic. Americans don't know about these war crimes because the Japanese scientists, most notably Dr. Ishii, were not prosecuted. Instead, they were brought to the U.S. to jump start America's biological weapons program.

I know this practice was rampant in the United States at one time... before the state run mental institutions were closed. I know 20-30 years ago, inmates could volunteer to try certain drugs on an experimental basis, but I don't believe that's the case today. What those in power have done to our own people is nothing short of atrocious. We've been little more than lab rats...

The P.O.W.'s of Americas drug wars are subjected to experiments on a daily basis, making them the supreme victions of their eledged victimless crimes!
The constitution never gave any rights at all to animals, however animals now have more rights and representation than most American citizens!
Marijuana has never killed anyone, yet it is illegal, yet over the last 50 years pharmecutical drugs have killed more people than Hittler!
The F.D.A. has made us all guinnapigs, for prifits are more important than lives!
Convicts are regarded as less than animals, to justify their unethical experiments for the greaer good!

There are certain categories of people who have forfeited their right to life, liberty and socity's protection:
child abusers; animal abusers; serial killers; violent serial rapists; psychopaths; sociopaths; drug barons and drug dealers. Experiment on this scum, by all means - with any luck, they might actually get more relevant results than when using animals - but DO NOT TEST OR EXPERIMENT ON ANY ANIMALS! ! !

Hitler,would be proud Anna, so i guess that you are the new moral dictator! Rapest and murderers would be spared under your bigoted system, but mentally ill, and addicts can be terrorized under your law!

If you think that testing on animals guarantees that drugs and other substances are safe, then you are incredibly naive. Once thousands of animals have been sacrificed for NOTHING, the real trials start on humans. So stop making stupid comments about Hitler!

Just wanted to clarify my last sentence. What Hitler did, was terrible, but what animal rights people advocate has nothing to do with him, and I am defending animal rights activists NOT Hitler.

Drugs for humans must be tested on humans one way or another, the difference here is that people were forced to undergo testing which isn't right in my opinion. However when drugs get into trials and even onto the market, the pharma industry have no real idea about the side effects. So they are in fact testing all their drugs on humans anyway, sometimes with terrible consequences.

I am currently reading the book "Canaries on the Rim" by Chip Ward regarding nuclear, chemical and germ warfare testing in the west in the second half of the 20th century. I have no doubt that this type of testing continues in some way,somewhere. Only the demographics change. Until we stand together and proclaim "NO MORE" it will continue. So sad.

Yeah...using humans as test subjects is alive and well in the world....any drug that is marketed...goes into clinical trials on humans...

The consentration camp for my friend and her siblings was at an orphanage in Pennsylvania during the fourties.
They injected the small children with who knows what and then radiated them. All but one, the boy, have very strange disorders of the blood and bones. Too bad no one steps forward and offers to pay the outreageous doctor bills of these people in their early and middle seventies. It was probably the government working with the pharmecuticals to make money for the war machine that they sacrificed the youngest and most innocent. Most are probably dead by now.

I just saw a woman punched in the face for not giving a naked drunk man raving about "how da gavament dont give me nah moneh ta by booze" and how "ya choose ta work dat is yo lyfstyle i am smat an get muny fo free" while asking for charity and getting very insulted when she told him to get a job.

By all means test on people like that we could do with less of them just leave the non human animals alone.

@ Angela Dubie
You are twisting what I wrote. Where did I write that . . . "mentally ill, and addicts can be terrorized under your law! " ? I most certainly did not write any such thing!

I have the utmost sympathy for mentally ill people. They are to be protected at all times! Indeed, I have had two serious mentally ill first cousins (both now dead) who suffered greatly, from their teens and onwards, for several decades, before they mercifully passed on to the other side of life. Yes, mercifully, because they DID suffer!I have looked at your profile, and I can see where you are coming from, but really, you are reading things into my comment that simply are not there!

Maybe I should have made it quite clear just what type of drug dealers I was referring to. The drug dealers I had in mind are the the ones who sell crack cocaine, heroin and other lethal drugs in order to make a lot of money. They do not care about the suffering of their "clients"; they just batten on these victims. I am NOT advocating the extermination of cannabis smokers or small time "friendly, local neighbourhood dealers" of cannabis, please note! There is now, on the black market, a very dangerous form of hash, known as "skunk" here in the UK, and I DO have serious reservations with respect to this variety. However, I was myself "a child of the 1960s" - although I was born in November 1952, so I only "came on the scene" rather late, at a very young age.

We humans DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT to use and abuse animals for our own ends!

Yes, medical testing continues. Our government turns a blind eye to drug approved with insufficient testing, thus Big Pharma save money on testing by using the public at large as test subjects. They can not only get their R&D investment back, but also make a huge profit long before the government pulls their product from the pharmacy shelf.

Angela Dubie (306)

I hear you Anna, and we sure don't have the right to abuse people either, and a life time of punishment for a single crime is enough without experimanting on them also! My husband server 5 years in prison for attempting to legalize marijuana, he was raped, experimented on, and given an uncurable disease, yet he has been punished even more since his release and will never be forgiven, though he paid his supposed debt to society by serving 5 years and 21 days on a 5 year sentence, he planted marijuana publically to test the validity of our constitution and the get a case in the supreme court to end the unconstitutional war against the people, only to be denied the right to use the constitution as his defence and was denied his appeal!
Animals have no rights granted them by god or the constitution, but most so called criminals were!
And yes we take offence when people want to give more rights to animals than to people!
My husband is on disability because the government tried to kill him but has failed several times, and marijuana is all that is keeping him sane and out of bed, but because of out pharmecutical monopoly, he is hated and persecuted for trusting in nature instead of their witches brews, yet animals have more rights that we do!
We were robbed of over $20,000 last year, put out of business, and had a plot to kill us from the masons and local police ect. and have found out the hard way that our constitution is null and void, and that we have no representation at all and we are to the point of resigning our humanhood to become Animals, since we have a hunting season against us already, and maybe we just might gain some rights!

Anna Borsey (66)

No, Angela, we do NOT have the right to abuse people either.

Oh dear. I often feel that I am living on a different planet to many of the US members of Care2. It is often said that Britain and America are "two nations divided by a common language" (George Bernard Shaw) and I totally agree with that statement. We also have utterly different life experiences.

Animals have no real rights at all in Law - at least, not here in Europe. I do not know about the USA. I know very little about your constitution or legal system or indeed anything else about your nation.

The fact that animals suffer at the hands of humans does not, of course, negate your suffering - or vice versa!

I agree with you about marijuana, as it happens. It is NOT in the same league as crack cocaine, heroine, morphine, cocaine, ecstasy and many other very dangerous and/or highly addictive drugs. I would never condone punishing any addict(s), only the drug barons and wealthy drug dealers who make a fortune out of other people's addiction while being non-users themselves. According to some articles that I read years ago, marijuana can help people affdlicted with certain illnesses.

"THC is the cannabinoid that has to date received most attention both from the scientific community and the general public. However, THC and other cannabinoids have been shown to have analgesic, anti-spasmodic, anti-convulsant, anti-tremor, anti-psychotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-emetic and appetite-stimulant properties. Research is ongoing into the neuroprotective and immunomodulatory effects of cannabinoids."

Anna, to picture modern America, all that you have to do is think of is Nazi Germany, we have a moral majority, that is not moral at all, we judge people not by their circuncism of their penis, but what comes from it/ our urine!
If your not a party member, you are a suspected terrorists, and the only representation that we have is dead presidents/ money, for the living ones only represent themselves!
Genetics, is the name of the game, in their quest of creating superpeople! Social genocide is in every law, truth has died, and our families are under attack! There is not one government official that represents us, and many have tried to destroy us!
We sure feel like Jews in Nazi Germany, and have been waiting for the allies to save us from these henchmen!
Animals have more rights than the majority of our people, for our nobility has to be purchased!
