NYC Uses Foster Children As Human Guinea Pigs.

The Administration for Children's Services in New York City, has been using HIV-positive foster children as human guinea pigs to test an experimental HIV drug. The drug, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, has turned out to be highly toxic. Jacklyn Hoerger, a New York social worker said, “We were told that if they were vomiting, if they lost their ability to walk, if they were having diarrhea, if they were dying, then all of this was because of their HIV infection.”
