Obama has made it clear that he will propose cuts to Social Security and Medicare and other safety net programs. Join the fight before it’s too late. Sit back and do nothing and it will happen. Senator Casey needs to take a stand and vote against any cuts. An organized and mobilized grassroots movement can stop these cuts. Over 70% of the public strongly rejects all proposals to cut Social Security and Medicare.
Premature infants were subjected to medical experiments without their parents being informed of the risks.Not a century ago or in a faraway country.Within the past eight years.In the United States of America.At prestigious institutions like Yale, Stanford, Brown and Duke.With federal funding.Between 2005 and 2009 — at 23 hospitals throughout the country run by prominent universities — 1,316 premature infants were the subjects of a government-funded clinical trial where some received more oxygen than others.The parents of these helpless research subjects were never informed that some newborns would be at increased risk of blindness, lung injury, brain damage or even death.Add your name to our petition demanding that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius: (1) apologize to the families of infants who were experimented on without their parents’ informed consent; (2) fully disclose to them the risks the study posed to their children; and (3) ensure that no federally funded studies repeat this tragic breach of scientific ethics.
