Good memory! I couldn't remember her name. But from what I"ve read, a lot of money HAS been made off of her, and her family, more than anything, wanted their loved one to get *credit* since she was never asked if this was okay. THe fact that she was black played a big role, since we have a history of treating black people like their bodies aren't their own and they aren't autonomous (such as the Tuskegee experiments). Letting men go untreated with syphillus just to see what happens? Not telling them they even have it? Horrible. Thank
You are right that millions were made eventually off of it - but not by the primary people involved (according to the book). I should remember the original doctor's name, but i don't. It seemed that he was motivated by the pure intellectual problem of having human cells reproduce outside of a human. Once he was able to accomplish that, he was sending samples all over the world at $10/piece. I don't think that there was any patent applied for - or even considered. By the time anyone thought of the monetary value of it, there were countless samples in laboratories all over the world.(I think that the money was eventually made by pharmaceutical companies by using those cells to create drugs to control their growth)

But the book had parts that were hard to read - even when it was voluntary - For example - They injected live cancer cells into volunteers in prison to see if cancer could be contagious.(Now that i think about it, I think that they even injected cancer cells into people without telling them to see the affects). Scientists, at the time, said that they had to have these kinds of experiments or cancer research would come to a halt.

Hey! My advice pretty much matches theirs!
I don't know why I thought of you (and I'm not surprised by your answer either).

It would be hard to be a backbone for someone that won't stand up for herself. And yet, if it is a friend, it's hard to stand by and see that person walked all over by another supposed friend. And since you introduced the two to begin with, I can see how you might feel somewhat responsible.

But, of course, you are right. While it seems like you are involved - you can't lead another's life for him/her.

(It's probably not much different than if you set up two of your friends in a romantic relationship - and that relationship goes sour)

This will be my closing argument:
First and foremost, those men and women who sit high on the bench wearing dresses are attorney's-at-law who put their pants on one leg at a time too, just like me and you.
Second and finallly, any lowely lawyer who would support such an erosion of civil liberties is not a very good attorney

No, you don't. We already distinguish between misdemeanors and felonies. There is a difference between jail and prison. We even have minimum security vs maximum security prison.
And regarding your comment to Tonka about not leaving DNA at the scene, plenty can be left there. People sweat, drool, bleed, ejaculate, shed hair, etc while in the commission of a felony.
I know what's in my heart and you can't possibly know. Yes, you leave stuff at a scene. You can pick that up. I don't leave my mouth anywhere except on my face.

Don't swab me people!:)

What BS. This is just your feeble attempt to deflect what you set your own self up for.
