Some years back I had made a study on the cost of the AIDS medication and I was suprised to find that the mfrs. are making huge profits. Is this moral?

They make money based on what they write. Some companies give perks to choose their medication over another.

Also, if we reformed the patent laws and generic meds laws, these pharmacutical companies couldn't hold out on the generic makers like they do now and these meds would be more accessible and affordable to the people who need them most.

Some companies just change a slight thing to their meds and refile for the patent therefore avoiding the chance it will go to the generic manufacturer

Drug companies tend not to have morals. Morals and business usually don't comingle well. That is unfortunate. There is such thing as business ethics, but it seems that the drug companies like any other business aren't always the most moral or ethical.

I believe that high morals and ethics can pay more in business.

I believe so as well. in my business we have a high moral and ethical standard. But the same is not true in the corporate world.

How does this money help these people? We are supposed to help and not destroy. Sad.

it doesn't. It just pads the corporate wallets more than needed. However, some of the Prescription assistance programs are a start!
