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

DES Action Australia-NSW appeals to all DES affected Australians to contact Australian media, newspapers, radio etc right now to tell them about the attention in US and UK, and the US court victory for DES daughters diagnosed with breast cancer.
