Breaking News: Family Of Woman Who Died From AIDS Drug Is Suing

According to the AP, the family of a pregnant woman, who died while taking a federally funded, NIH approved, experimental AIDS drug to protect her unborn child, is suing. The $10 million suit faults doctors, drug makers and hospitals for continuing to give the drug regimen despite signs of liver failure and because doctors did not warn the woman of the trial's dangers.

The Peach is quick to remind readers that this is the same drug distributed by the thousands as part of Bush's AIDS plan for Africa. This is also the drug that has started the current firestorm at the NIH, which suspiciously and unceremoniously dismissed Dr. Jonathan Fishbein following his disclosure that the NIH covered up the AIDS drug's flaws.
