Killer doctors. It is a fact that you just need to take. Their task is stupid to kill anyone who gets in their criminal paws! Especially children!!!, – emotionally writes specialist, reacting to the hate campaign in the media. Then he offers his analysis of the situation on the basis of scarce data.

First, he points out, sane doctor will not refuse curable patient a drug that is available. Brandt reasonably writes that at the time all publications were not really known whether it was required to the child the specified drug. At the same time, motivation to refuse the introduction of the drug from the doctors was not: it cannot be taken home. Based on the available information, the author of the analysis suggests that the doctors most likely acted according to clinical need. The drug would not give due to a lack of evidence. In this case, the doctor really could be held accountable.
