Recommended Posts

Australia's prime minister has given a national apology to survivors of the thalidomide scandal and their families.

It comes over 60 years after the morning sickness drug started causing birth defects in babies globally.

"This apology takes in one of the darkest chapters in Australia's medical history," Anthony Albanese told parliament on Wednesday.

It is the first time the government has acknowledged its role in the tragedy.

I remember as a kid seeing kids a couple of years older than me affected by this. It was offered to my mum but she wouldn't even take a Panadol when pregnant, luckily for me.
