The Human Laboratory

187284941_141611278012019_7094031481372407127_n

THE HUMAN LABORATORY AIR DATE 5 November 1995 NARRATOR (CHARLOTTE CORNWELL): The 60s, the age of contraception, heralded a whole new era of liberation for women. But contraceptives have not always meant liberation. SYBIL SHAINWALD: They have been used as a human laboratory. They’re just expendable. Who cares if a Third World woman dies? NARRATOR: When Norplant was released in the West recently, it seemed to be every woman’s dream. Hassle-free sex, no daily pill, and extremely reliable protection. Six implants are surgically inserted under the skin of the arm, where they stay for five years, releasing a hormone to…

Everyone must respect the basic human rights of all human beings, pope says

VATICAN— The fundamental rights of all human beings, especially the most vulnerable, must be respected and protected in every situation, Pope Francis said, marking Human Rights Day, Dec. 10. “While a part of humanity lives in opulence, another part sees their dignity denied, ignored or infringed upon and their fundamental rights ignored or violated,” he said. Such a contradiction leads one to ask “whether the equal dignity of all human beings — solemnly proclaimed 70 years ago — is truly recognized, respected, protected and promoted in every circumstance,” he said in a written message. The message was read aloud by…
