On top of being revealed a liar regarding his public testimony denying that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded “gain-of-function” research at the Wuhan Lab where a bat coronavirus was made more deadly and infectious, a series of disclosures about other dubious research activities he has assisted emerged this week.
One particularly cruel experiment was a study where beagle puppies were fed to sand flies. Since the dogs were still alive while being eaten their vocal chords where severed “so as not to unduly distress the lab workers conducting the study.” The point of this research was not fully explained.
In another study, researchers funded by the NIH tortured monkeys. First, they damaged their brains with toxic acid then terrorized them with rubber snakes and spiders—creatures the monkeys instinctively fear. The point of this research was not fully explained.
A third set of cruel experiments was conducted on orphaned children in New York City. Test subjects were given a variety of toxic drugs thought to be potentially useful for helping AIDS sufferers. Dozens died during and subsequent to these experiments. The point of this research was not fully explained.
Dr. Fauci defended these research projects and called the research “necessary to support the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s regulatory activities. The selection of orphans for some of these projects ensured that families wouldn’t be traumatized by the suffering inflicted on the test subjects. The complaint that none of the test subjects gave informed consent is absurd. None were capable of giving consent. The scientists involved simply weighed the value of the lives that would be sacrificed compared to the knowledge gained. That was enough consent for them to go forward.”
