Horrific US Medical Experiments Come to Light

Take a gander at this, folks:

Horrific US Medical Experiments Come to Light.

It reminds me of that Ontario Science Center Truth exhibit that I always visit when I go there.  I remember hearing about Nazi eugenics and how people used to think that others were “feebleminded” (i.e. not like so-called “normal” people). And then, I remember hearing about the horrid medical experiments that so-called “doctors” performed on others, and the sterilization of people with mental disabilities in order to “purify” the human race. It’s so tragic that people used to participate in these monstrous activities. I’m guessing that they still do, in some places.

If they do, they should stop and think about it from their patient’s perspective. What if they were the ones who needed help and were tortured instead? How would they feel? Awful, I bet, and guilty, considering that they used to be the perpetrators.

I’m ashamed that my own country, Canada, participated, and even encouraged these practices. We all ought to be ashamed. But since we’re still alive, we can still change what needs to be changed and do what needs to be done to protect human rights everywhere. It starts with just one act of kindness to another human being, whether you are offering your seat on the bus, or saying “Thank you”. Then, I suggest checking up on Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch and see what they’re up to and what you can do to help out.

Please. The past is trouble enough.

Doctors accused of drugging and sexually assaulting woman – thestar.com

February 19, 2011 Leave a comment

I came across a disturbing article about two bad doctors here:

Doctors accused of drugging and sexually assaulting woman – thestar.com.

Seriously, they’re DOCTORS, so they should know better than to act like monsters. I have to know why they would do such a thing, especially when things like this go public and get them in a lot of hot water.

I hope that the College of Physicians and Surgeons throws the book at doctors like them. They should not let the few bad apples out there spoil the crop. I know that there are a lot of good doctors out there, and what these two did should not shake, let alone shatter, our good faith in medicine. After all, without the works of good doctors and nurses, we’d probably be dead by now.
