PHR's new report, Experiments in Torture, has sent shock waves through the conscience of America this week. This report reveals evidence indicating that the Bush administration may have conducted illegal and unethical human experimentation and research on detainees in CIA custody.
PHR's CEO Frank Donaghue provides an overview of our new report, Experiments in Torture: Human Subject Research and Experimentation in the Enhanced Interrogation Program.
Physicians for Human Rights is proud to announce that PHR advisor Steven Reisner, PhD, received the Beacon Award at the New York State Psychological Association's annual conference in May 2010. The Beacon Award is given annually to a psychologist whose leadership or advocacy has established a guiding light for the profession of psychology.
Today PHR has released a new report, Experiments in Torture: Human Subject Research and Experimentation in the Enhanced Interrogation Program. It is the first report to reveal evidence indicating that CIA medical personnel allegedly engaged in the crime of illegal experimentation after 9/11, in addition to the previously disclosed crime of torture.
The Prison Rape Elimination Act became law in 2003, but it was not until earlier this year that regulations to implement the law were proposed to be enacted by the Department of Justice. In early May, Physicians for Human Rights submitted comments in support of these proposed standards to prevent, and offer treatment to victims of, sexual abuse in prison.
