The unborn is the threatened species of our age. This age began several decades ago, nearly unrecognized, with the injection of killer molecules— esticides and industrial poisons—into the human habitat. The early preoccupation with profits earned by chemical monarchs was far too intoxicating to allow a second breath to recognize a simple truth of biology: what kills one life form nearly always hurts other forms of life. Pesticides were hailed as miracles for the hungry. It was easy to be short-sighted about the natural orders of biology.
What seems surprising looking back now is how massive destruction of human live by chemicals was masked by corporate deceptions for decades. To cite one example, the Bhopal gas tragedy in December 1984 at the Union Carbide India exposed over 500,000 people to MIC gas (methyl isocyanate) and other chemicals, killing 3,787 people. That, of course, is how environmental tragedies are initially reported. Twenty years later, more than 15,000 deaths have been documented. Even a government affidavit recognized that the leak caused 558,125 injuries including 38,478 temporary partial injuries and approximately 3,900 severely and permanently disabling injuries.
What is was the true extent of genetic damage? How will such damage be passed to the offsprings of people so affected? How many generations will suffer? Perhaps there will never truly authentic answers to these questions.
