Vera Sharav: "I came to Nuremberg to provide historical context to the current global threat confronting our civilization"
A good time to snap out of slumber and listen?
I want to share a poignant talk by Vera Sharav, whom I’ve had the joy to meet, and she is just such a vibrant, sunny soul. I admire her deeply.
Vera, the founder of the Alliance for Human Research Protection, has been a fierce, very effective and highly respected medical ethics advocate for a very long time, and she has accomplished a lot. The world is a better place thanks to her courage and passion:
Her advocacy achievements include: suspension of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) pesticide experiment (CHEERS) on children; complaint led to two federal investigations on the use of children in foster care as guinea pigs in experimental AIDS drug and vaccine trials; suspension of smallpox vaccine on children; suspension of “violence prediction” experiment that exposed 6–11 year old NYC boys of color to fenfluramine ; opened a public debate about the ethics of relapse-inducing experiments in schizophrenia patients. Organized families and victims of unethical research to join her in testifying before the National Bioethics Advisory Committee (NBAC) — re: unethical experimentation on mentally disabled psychiatric patients; those testimonies led to a prize-winning series in the Boston Globe, “Doing Harm: Research on the Mentally Ill” — ultimately resulting in the shutdown of 29 clinical trials at the National Institute of Mental Health (1999).
In earnest, Vera doesn’t really need much introduction, especially in the freedom community. Everybody knows who she is. We know that today, she is very outspoken about the dangers of the biosecurity state that is being erected before our eyes.
She speaks very passionately about the parallels between today’s attack on medical sovereignty and what was happening in early Nazi Germany. Vera, who survived the Holocaust as a child, is strongly qualified to draw the comparison.
Please click on the image to watch Vera’s poignant talk at the 75th Anniversary celebration of the Nuremberg Code at Nuremberg, Germany. The full text of her keynote can be found on Dr. Meryl Nass’ Substack.
“Never forget” does not mean that then is then, and now is now. It means that when the rights of an individual to bodily autonomy are being eroded by minute, maybe something is dangerously broken.
Tricksters in high chairs want to distract and divide us with pre-made talking points but that is why they are tricksters. Our situation is not about pre-made and safe talking points that mask today’s situation, it is about respecting life and dignity as such, and standing up to abusers (which is something that each of us decides to do from the inside, sooner or later).
I am sending this post with deep gratitude to Vera because she is such a brave soul.
(Thank you for your support, I surely depend on it.)
