Newstalk has reported that experimental drug trials were conducted on at least 290 children across 10 mother-and-baby homes in the 1960s and 70s.

The trials were said to be conducted at homes at Bessborough in Cork, St Peters in Westmeath, St Clare's in Stamullen, The Good Shepard in Dunboyne as well as six Dublin Homes.

That's absolutely appalling.  Thanks for sharing this, Belinda.

Abhorrent...but not at all surprising... little regard was held for the young mothers...even less for the "offspring"... they were rarely referred to as children...

This all has only come to light after the stories about the Galway remains were released...which makes me wonder, had that not been the iceberg tip, would we have ever known?

And this was into the 1970s, mind... not a century before....

Some of these children survived these vaccines and grew to adulthood with these poisons inside only to pass on then from cancers and the sort...
