Poisoning Babies

Poisoning babies and children, all over the world, is one of those consequences of using HIV/AIDS drugs.

For instance, The House That AIDS Built, by Liam Scheff, describes the situation in New York City's only residence exclusively for children with AIDS (some with deformations resulting from the infamous "treatments"), Incarnation Children's Center (I.C.C.).

The drugs being given to the children are toxic - they're known to cause genetic mutation (AZT), liver and kidney failure, bone marrow death, bodily deformations, brain damage and fatal skin disorders. If the children refuse the drugs, they're held down and have them force fed.

If the children continues to resist, they're taken to Columbia Presbyterian hospital where a surgeon puts a plastic tube through their abdominal wall into their stomachs. From then on, the drugs are injected directly into their intestines.

The four children who've died at ICC in the last year all had tubes.

Liver failure is the leading cause of death among individuals being treated with AIDS meds in the United States. That is, for those adults who choose to take the recommended medication; the aforementioned babies and children do not have that choice.
