St. Vincent’s House Orphanage In Philadelphia Ran Experiments On Children By Infecting Dozens With Tuberculin Causing Permanent Blindness To Some

In 1908, three Philadelphia researchers infected dozens of children with tuberculin at the St. Vincent’s House orphanage in Philadelphia, causing permanent blindness in some of the children and painful lesions and inflammation of the eyes in many of the others.

In the study, they refer to the children as “material used”.

Once children were blinded they were sent to live in homes with strangers

No criminal prosecutions were made against the doctors for what they did to these helpless infants.

They believed the science was worth the sacrifice.

  1. And we’re supposed to trust these medical professionals, heh? They’re the same ilk that worked with the SS to “supervise” tortures and how to get the most labour for the least amount of food or care in Nazi death camps. There aren’t any less of them today either.

  2. Well, I hope they pay for that.

  3. The medical industry has a very dark past – and despite its present rosy image, is still quite dark.
