Those Who Violated Nuremberg Code Must Be Prosecuted for Crimes Against Humanity

Posted by M. C. on August 24, 2022

In the last two-and-a-half years, tragically, we have witnessed a global assault on the Nuremberg Code, according to Children’s Health Defense President Mary Holland. We can restore this foundation of medical ethics … but only if we come together.

Editor’s Note: Following are remarks delivered by Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense president and general counsel, on Aug. 20 in Nuremberg, Germany, at an event hosted by Action Alliance, a group of German activists, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Nuremberg Code.

Thank you to all who have made this event possible — it is a great honor to be here.

The Nuremberg Code is an international monument to humanity. It is a critical guidepost, not unlike the 10 Commandments in the New Testament or similar guidance in other religions.

In essence, the code says: “Do this, and you will stay on the right path; stray from this, and bad things will happen.”

The last two-and-a-half years have certainly proven the wisdom of this document.

I am especially honored to be here because the authors of the Nuremberg Code were doctors and lawyers from the United States who sought to prevent future horrors. And they built on medical and legal ethics established here in Germany before the Nazi regime.

I deeply wish that U.S., British, Russian and German government representatives were here to stand with us, as well as representatives of the global mainstream media.

It is a sad commentary that they are absent.

But I rejoice that The People’s representatives from all over the world are here — because it is “We the People” who will restore our rights, our laws and our morality and lead us out of these troubled times.

For more than 75 years, the Nuremberg Code has been a beacon of light — all medical and legal norms have been based on it since 1947.

The Nuremberg Code is the foundation for modern medical ethics.

The code has been incorporated into U.S. federal and state law, and U.S. courts have recognized the Nuremberg Code as a universal, international legal standard — like the norms prohibiting slavery and piracy.

The Nuremberg Code exists and is enforceable even if a country or institution or individual denies its validity.

The consent of the individual is absolutely essential in all medical experimentation. There are no exceptions.

Tragically, in the last two-and-a-half years, we have witnessed a global assault on the Nuremberg Code.

Governments, medical establishments, universities and the media have violated the very first principle and every other principle of the code’s 10 points.

They have coerced people into being human guinea pigs.

Be seeing you
