Difficult all the way around

There would have been no way to know this was going to happen without experiencing a pattern of birth defects during testing and it's probable that such accidents have contributed significantly to the more extensive testing that's done today. It's a tragedy that has no villainous intent. Who knows what drugs we are ingesting to day that will be banned tomorrow. It's happened and will continue to happen as long as we use artificial means to do what our bodies cannot or won't do. It's not of much use to apologize but doing so and handing out money becomes the only option now. If an apology is useless, a condemnation of it is just as useless.

It is my understanding that it was tested on

pregnant mice and other mammals but none of them had the length of gestation of humans.
