Abstract (Document Summary)

"They are torturing these kids, and it is nothing short of murder," said Michael Ellner, a minister and president of Health Education AIDS Liaison, an advocacy group for HIV parents.

Jacqueline Hoerger was a pediatric nurse at ICC from 1989 to 1993 and said the experimentation was going on even back then. "We were taught that any symptom we saw was HIV-related," said Hoerger, 43. "The vomiting, diarrhea, wasting syndrome, the neurological side effects - they were dying. There was death."

- HIV-infected foster children, some as young as 3 months, were given high doses of experimental AIDS treatments. - Incarnation Children's Center, where the drug tests were carried out, is run by the Archdiocese of New York. (Graham Morrison)
