AIDS Research on Foster Children

It will be in all the papers tomorrow, but there's a major story breaking right now about NIH-funded AIDS research during the 1990s at some of the best known medical centers in the country.  It involved foster children and appeared to be conducted, in many cases, without proper consents and without the appointment of a monitor or advocate.  The AP story is here.  There will undoubtedly be more on this over the next few days.  [tm]
