An unknown number of
vaccine trials took place in Mother and Baby Homes.
Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse (CICA) originally included the
vaccine trials in its investigations; however in 2004 these
investigations came to an end due to Judicial Review proceedings.
It is unacceptable that children who were treated as guinea pigs
are left without justice and without answers.
Disturbingly, it has emerged that the adoption files
sent from the Sacred Heart Adoption Society to the HSE in Cork did not
include records pertaining to the vaccine trials.
Bizarrely, in a crude attempt to sanitise the non-consensual
participation of adopted people in illegal drug trials, the HSE referred
to the files as “immunisation records”.
Adopted people who were given vaccines in these trials did not
receive the drugs for the purpose of 'immunisation' - these were
experiments carried out on defenceless infants.
Questions must be asked as to why the Sacred Heart Adoption Society did
not supply the HSE with the files relating to vaccine trials at the
Sacred Heart Mother and Baby Homes. Did Sacred Heart refuse to
hand them over or did the HSE refuse to take them?
It is absolutely imperative that the government reinstate the inquiry
into the vaccine trials. Children were used as guinea pigs
without their mothers' consent and it is simply unacceptable for the
Irish state to ignore this abuse of its vulnerable citizens.
If such vaccine trials had taken place in China, the Irish
government would clamber to be the first to issue condemnation.
We now expect the current government to apply the same moral
outrage to actions in which Ireland has been complicit.
