    U.S. to apologize for STD experiments in Guatemala
    Government researchers infected patients with syphilis, gonorrhea without their consent in the 1940s



    U.S. government medical researchers intentionally infected hundreds of people in Guatemala, including institutionalized mental patients, with gonorrhea and syphilis without their knowledge or permission more than 60 years ago.

    Many of those infected were encouraged to pass the infection onto others as part of the study.

    About one third of those who were infected never got adequate treatment.

    On Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius offered extensive apologies for actions taken by the U.S. Public Health Service.

    "The sexually transmitted disease inoculation study conducted from 1946-1948 in Guatemala was clearly unethical," according to the joint statement from Clinton and Sebelius. "Although these events occurred more than 64 years ago, we are outraged that such reprehensible research could have occurred under the guise of public health. We deeply regret that it happened, and we apologize to all the individuals who were affected by such abhorrent research practices."

    The apology was directed to Guatemala and to Hispanic residents of the United States, according to officials.

    A telebriefing with Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health and Arturo Valenzuela, Assistant Secretary of State for Western Affairs is expected around 11 a.m. ET.

    The episode raises inevitable comparisons to the infamous Tuskegee experiment, the Alabama study where hundreds of African-American men were told they were being treated for syphilis, but in fact were denied treatment. That U.S. government study lasted from 1932 until press reports revealed it in 1972.

    The Guatemala experiments, which were conducted between 1946 and 1948, never provided any useful information and the records were hidden.

    They were discovered by Susan Reverby, a professor of women's studies at Wellesley College, and was posted on her website.

    According to Reverby’s report, the Guatemalan project was co-sponsored by the U.S. Public Health Service, the NIH, the Pan-American Health Sanitary Bureau (now the Pan American Health Organization) and the Guatemalan government. The experiments involved 696 subjects — male prisoners and female patients in the National Mental Health Hospital.

    The researchers were trying to determine whether the antibiotic penicillin could prevent early syphilis infection, not just cure it, Reverby writes. After the subjects were infected with the syphilis bacteria — through visits with prostitutes who had the disease and direct inoculations — Reverby notes that it is unclear whether they were later cured or given proper treatment.

    Reverby, who has written extensively about the Tuskegee experiments, found the evidence while conducting further research on the Alabama syphilis study.

    when they cure it then their apology will be taken seriously

    anything done can be undone

    anything put together can be taken apart

    any imposed spell or control can be reversed

    anything given can be taken back

    u get what u give, and give what u get

    it's premeditated selfish inconsiderate needs- or s.i.n.

    and when time is up if they don't heal, God will, GOD willing

    thanks for sharing this article

    Good stuff Kemestry.

    I watched a documentary about a year ago, which had to do with puerto ricans.
    The choreographer rosie lopez was in it. Anyway,

    In the documentary, it spoke of how women in puerto rico were guinea pigs
    for birth control experiments of some pharmaceutical company.

    I'm gonna have to ferret out the name of that documentary.

    This is just so totally disgusting - how many more things like that are going to be revealed - and how do we know its not going on right now - people often mock conspiracy theorists, but some of these incidents show they may well be right in their opinions.

    As for ....
    when they cure it then their apology will be taken seriously
    anything done can be undone

    No - I don't believe that - you cannot undo the suffering and deaths maybe of the people who were infected.

    There are Tuskegee experiments being done all over the place, including their own in Europe.

    I'm convinced that the only or main reason Hitler was stopped on his reign of terror was because he turned his genocide onto his own people. He was offing white elderly, white retarded people, and white disabled in quest for a master race..... and people knew that there was a fine line or no line in what can be considered 'retarded, disabled, or abnormal' in a quest for a master race - and that can include THEM.

    but in the meantime, he was experimenting on all these folks, genetic experimentation, viral experimentation and everything else. The reason why it is done on dark folks the most is because dark folks are the majority of the world, and white people care less about them since they aren't apart of the 'master race' that white people do care about and want.

    Hell with the governments apology. They are only apologizing because they got caught. They still got other experiments going on, you bet.

    Had this not been exposed, we never would have heard of it.

    I agree. I'd always associated Tuskegee with our famed airmen, but heard about the awful things which happened there, a few years ago.
