Mr. Hattoy, political adviser to Democratic presidential candidate Gov. Bill Clinton, and Ms. Glaser, co-founder of the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, addressed the 1992 Democratic National Convention to call for increased attention and funding for research on AIDS. Mr. Hattoy criticized the Bush administration for failing to appreciate the scope of the AIDS epidemic and for ignoring the plight of a large number of Americans due to moral prejudices. In a speech that moved many delegates to tears, Ms. Glaser told the convention delegates of her acquisition of the HIV virus, the transmission of the virus to her children, and the death of her daughter to the disease. She called for an administration that will take action to combat the AIDS epidemic. close
