Now tell me again just how voluntary this was for her.

completely voluntary, no one held a gun to her head and said "you must participate in this trial".

there were plenty of options available to her, some of which include:

1.) get another HIV test
2.) do not participate in an experimental drug trial
3.) terminate the pregnancy
4.) stop taking experimental drugs when they start making you sick

This story is sad, but it is clearly only being portayed from the familys point of view, which in no doubt biased (and understandably so)
