Wow!! What a real eye-opener!! I had to watch this movie for a medical
bioethics class and I really learned a lot from watching it. I thought
the way things were presented were done quite well. It really showed me
how cruel things were back in that time frame and opened my eyes to
watch things around me in the present. What a shame that this event
took place. How unfair it was to these poor men and their families. It
makes me appreciate even more the stand that people take on behalf of
I have to commend Miss Evers' for her dedication to these men and all that she tried to do to help them regardless of the consequences. It is too sad that she was not able to do more. As far as Dr. Brodus and the other Dr. goes, it is a shame that they were coerced into thinking that in just 6 mos to a year the funds would become available to give real treatment to these men.
At the end, when there were so few men left alive, I am grateful that they were compensated somewhat for the suffering they had to endure. At the same time, it saddens me that so many had to die from this horrible disease to begin with even when the medication became available.
My condolences to the families for sure and my gratitude to the AP for bringing this to the forefront.
