Investigate PHR allegations


On June 7, 2010, Physicians for Human Rights unveiled a report detailing the alleged involvement of U.S. military and intelligence health professionals in experiments utilizing "enhanced interrogation techniques" on detainees captured after 9/11. Such experimentation on human subjects would be a violation of the legal and ethical protections afforded by the Nuremberg Code, the Geneva Conventions, federal regulations governing human subject research and the federal War Crimes Act. The report also presents evidence indicating that the results of the experiments were used by attorneys in the Department of Justice to craft a legal framework designed to shield interrogators from prosecution for torture and to refine the illegal torture practices used by the U.S. government.

The New Evangelical Partnership has been involved in issues around torture and detainee treatment since its inception, and is a partner with the National Religious Campaign Against Torture. David Gushee and Richard Cizik were instrumental in the authoring and adoption of the Evangelical Declaration Against Torture by the National Association of Evangelicals.

TAKE ACTION: The Department of Health and Human Services declined to investigate the CIA’s alleged torture experiments. Join us in urging the President and the Attorney General to ensure a thorough investigation of the allegations. Send an email today:
