Apology overdue to Victims of Miscarriage Drug

A Sept 2002 letter by Carol Devine, DES Action Australia-NSW

Apology overdue to victims of miscarriage drugThe drug company Grunenthal’s ”apology” goes beyond being insulting to all the unfortunate victims of thalidomide –  read Thalidomide maker’s apology ‘insulting’  – This company has set the benchmark in deceitful spin for all future ”apologies” for drug disasters.

Millions of dollars have been paid out by drug companies in US out-of-court settlements to people exposed in the womb to the anti-miscarriage drug DES (diethylstilboestrol). Yet, not one drug company has ever apologised for the DES tragedy. The DES case exposed between 6 million and 12 million people in the US and many thousands outside America, including the estimated 740,000 in Australia. ” a Sept 2002 letter by Carol Devine, DES Action Australia-NSW.
