Everyday we are inundated with these ads to donate money to various children's causes. The one in particular that bothers me is the child leprosy fund. They say that for a donation of 28 dollars a month a child could be cured of leprosy. I of course am not in favor of a child suffering. It occurs to me time and time again why aren't they protesting to these pharmaceutical companies who "own" this drug. They have it within their power to eradicate this disease by providing this drug. Instead they show these commercials to make us (Ms/Mr. joe average) feel guilty. When are they going to attack the people who are really at fault. Lets face it, does these big pharma companies need to make anymore profit? How do the stock holders sleep at night? They are the ones that need a reminder of how to be humane.
