Parents 'pimp' kids for swine flu test
PARENTS are enrolling children as young as nine months in drug trials in exchange for hundreds of dollars.
The cash payments, which could breach national ethical guidelines, will ignite debate over how much should be paid to cover "reasonable expenses" of
Now when the article said 'pimp', I thought it meant that they were kind of trailing their children on different vaccines so as they have a better
chance of staying healthy after recieving their flu shot.
But as it turned out, they were actually 'prostituting' their children to recieve the swine flu vaccines in exchange for hundreds of dollars.
Now I don't know about you, but, that is just plain wrong. I've been seeing on the news lately that quite a few children in Australia have had
side-effects from the child flu vaccines, which is a bit of a scare.

What is everyone's thoughts?
