Last Friday I posted a video with Mat Fraser from the TV series American Horror Story where he speaks about being a “freak” and an actor in the entertainment industry. Among many other things, he happened to mention that his birth defects were caused by his mother taking the now controversial drug, thalidomide. It just so happened that I had watched a short documentary by The New York Times the night before about the drug and the fallout. Up until that point I knew basically nothing about thalidomide and I certainly didn’t realize the amount of birth defects it caused.
In that article about Fraser I said I’d post the doc I had watched up on SOAO, so here she is.
