MAKES SENSATIONAL HUMAN
VIVISECTION CHARGES
Washington, Dec. 11. "That ser
ums prepared from germs of syphilis,
cancer and other virulent diseases,
are used in human vivisection experi
mentation" was charged before the
Anti-Vivisection convention by Frank
Stephens of Philadelphia.
He declared that Dr. Hoguchi of
Rockefeller Institute experimented
with an alleged serum on girls from
2 to 18 years of age, and that out of
400 such experiments 177 of the pa
tients were believed to be syphilitic
and 146 in normal health.
Dr. Albert Leffingwell of Philadel
phia compared vivisection with the
Spanish inquisition.
"Upon the living bodies of Amer
ican soldiers, upon lunatics in asy
lums and babies in institutions, and
patients in charity hospitals, experi
ments in human vivisection have
taken place," he charged.
