I knew a thalidomide baby. In spite of having no hands, only one arm, he made a success of his life. But , he did not need to be that wat. A pharmaceutical company’s greed made his life more difficult. I live in Canada

Again, it goes to show us that you need to stick to your principles and not accept something at face value. In what some would describe as a male dominant environment, (mentioned in the article), this woman pushed forward and changed the course of history. Bravo, very well done!!!

1961 – Australian doctor William McBride wrote to leading medical journal, the Lancet, after noticing an increase in deformed babies being born at his hospital – all to mothers who had taken thalidomide. The drug was withdrawn later that year.

Hadn’t heard of her before. My mother was offered thalidomide but fortunately refused to take it. I went to school with a couple of kids affected with birth defects from thalidomide.
