This is part 2 of my interview with Amanda Seigler, a children’s rights advocate and autistic activist, about university studies on autism that have questionable ethics. We talk about Duke University’s experiments where autistic preschoolers are being restrained and injected with stem cells to see if it will change them. There are many risks involved and no benefit to this process, which is currently under fire for conflicts of interest.
