Actually, there have been allegations about this in the past, the study just triggered the Israeli government to respond, and that response appears to be the main story here. That response appears to admit that there was a fairly widespread program to provide these injections. The issue is simply whether or not consent, or perhaps more specifically, informed consent, was given by the recipients of these injections.I would think if a government was in processing immigrants and just slippin in an injection, we'd have heard about it long before some stupid study....This story reeks of untruth.
Whether or not the injections were given to these people is not the subject of debate. That has been confirmed by all parties involved.
