A Great Medical Injustice to A family

on 2/6/2010

It is amazing that the medical community can just gloss of this woman as if she did not exist, but continue to use cells that came from her body for, "Cancer science research." Thank-you first of all the Lacks family for sharing this information with Ms Skloot, so readers like myself can share this information with friends and family. "I can see OPRAH doing a special show on this information."

YESNO

Product Overview

Skloot brilliantly weaves together the story of Henrietta Lacks--a woman whose cells have been unwittingly used for scientific research since the 1950s--with the birth of bioethics, and the dark history of experimentation on African Americans.
