Medical insanity: Babies now being treated with dangerous diabetes drugs before they're even born

(NaturalNews) In Britain, drug companies are now pushing for children to be dosed with potentially dangerous diabetes drugs before they're even born! It's just the latest example of medical insanity in a world experiencing a runaway diabetes epidemic.

But instead of teaching expectant mothers how to halt the disease through exercise, mineral-rich nutrition, and avoiding processed foods, the government is pushing dangerous chemical medications that inevitably have health-compromising side effects.

The drug being used in UK trials right now is Metformin (glucophage), a drug with a long history of toxicity and known to cause side effects like:

• muscle pain and weakness
• slow or uneven heart rate
• nausea and vomiting
• difficulty breathing
• reduction in levels of sex hormones
• numbness in arms and legs
• stomach pain
• lactic acidosis, a potentially fatal build-up of lactic acid in the body

... and this is what they're now giving pregnant women? Seriously?

Pregnant woman are the new target market for Big Pharma
The Daily Mail reports that "If the strategy is a success, the treatment could be in widespread use in as little as five years, with tens of thousands of overweight but otherwise healthy mothers-to-be drugged each year." (Health | Mail Online...)

This push to drug pregnant women with diabetes drugs is truly the height of medical insanity. And it's on top of the recent push to vaccinate pregnant women with flu shots -- something that was unthinkable even in conventional medical circles just five years ago.

It's clear from all this that Big Pharma sees unborn babies as fertile new ground for profit exploitation. In scanning news headlines each day, I've even seen a push for chemotherapy for expectant mothers as a way to "prevent cancer" in their unborn babies!

Yeah, insane. But that's the new norm for Western medicine which has proven itself to be little more than a profiteering racket of mindless drugging of adults, teens, infants and even your pet dog.

"Aborting" babies years after they are born
At the same time, none of this medical science agenda is really about saving children at all, because the very same circle of scientists who push vaccines and drugs are also pushing a new agenda of legalizing post-birth "abortions" -- the killing of babies up to three years old if the parents don't like the child.

Yes, a new "scientific" paper published in the Journal of Medical Ethics argues that killing newborn babies is ethically no different than abortion and should therefore be openly allowed in society. The paper says newborn babies are not "actual persons" and that they do not have "a moral right to life." The authors -- Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva -- say that killing babies up the three years old is both ethical and based in science! (

In medical science circles, it seems, babies are either seen as profit exploitation opportunities or useless trash to be thrown out or re-processed as raw materials for cosmetics (yes, it's true this is done in China). These are the values of modern medical science, the vaccine industry and the pharmaceutical companies. Think about it: Advocates of infanticide (the murder of babies) get published in a mainstream science journal, while those who advocate natural childbirth, midwifery or breastfeeding are routinely marginalized as being "unscientific."

Science, it turns out, has been hijacked by corporate interests and a life extermination agenda.
