The TRUTH about Thalidomide Babies/Tawana Williams 
Thalidomide was actually never approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) during the early 1960s, and therefore, prevented thousands of deformities from occurring in the United States. Frances Oldham Kelsey, the reviewer at the FDA who delayed the approval, was awarded the President’s Award for Distinguished Federal Civilian Service (at the time, the highest civilian award in the U.S.) by President John F. Kennedy.
Taking even a single dose of thalidomide during early pregnancy may cause major birth defects.

In 1998, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Thalidomide for use in treating leprosy symptoms. Studies are also being conducted to determine the effectiveness of Thalidomide in treating symptoms associated with AIDS, Behchet disease, lupus, Sjogren syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, macular degeneration, and some cancers.

Isn't that something? What do you think about that? I'm Tawana Williams a Thalidomide baby...
