... and babies

Civilian casualties continue to mount long after wars “officially” end. I shot these video images of preserved fetuses and living children in a Vietnamese hospital in 1991. Medical professionals believe that the continuing high percentage of birth defects in Vietnam is a direct consequence of the US use of Agent Orange from 1961 to 1971. Depleted uranium weapons used in Iraq in 1991 are now linked to similar birth defects, both in Iraqi children as well as in babies born to soldiers serving in the Gulf War.
