The study states that Aids doctors want to be able to (and so do) put a tube surgically through the stomachs of children who don’t like to, want to, or can’t swallow their very “unpalatable” FDA Black-Box labeled “Aids Drugs.”
The study notes that drug adherence improves after taking choice out of the equation.
They note that there are only minor complications, such as intravenous antibiotics required to treat infection, and “local site tenderness.”
The study considered children “non-adherent” if they had had “2 visits” to the hospital, “where nonadherence was documented” over the course of one year.
That’s when they became “eligible” for the non-elective surgery.
One “older child” had to quit gymnastics. Children (or their hospital records) were reviewed for one year, and not more.
Children at the Incarnation Children’s Center who had the tubes inserted in their bellies, I was told, over and over and over again, by staff, mothers and teenagers from the place, always deteriorated and did worse than children without the tubes.

ICC received funding from both government and corporate sponsors to enroll its wards, primarily abandoned children of drug (crack cocaine and heroin) abusers, in NIH clinical trials(1).

Dr David Rasnick: They were just experimenting, like you had a bunch of lab rats, an unending supply. You had subjects, you had drugs and you were just experimenting, throwing things around.
Boy: [ ed. – this is “Sean” from The House that AIDS Built. He is later called “Carlos” by the film producers. Both are aliases, as per his guardian’s request]
It’s just that I don’t like it when I see my best friends pass away, you know.
Vera Sharav: Would they have done those experiments to their own children? I doubt it.
