Should Medical Research be limited by Ethical Boundaries?
I recently had a short disagreement with my friend over this matter. I would appreciate what you are think about it?
Should medical research be limited by ethical boundaries? If so, what boundaries. If not, why not?
I say animal testing is unethical. Most say it's not.
I say stem cell research is ethical. Most say it's not.
I think medical research needs to question social norms and question what is or isn't ethical in order to be as far reaching and helpful as possible; yet I think it should be limited by ethical boundaries otherwise medical gains can end up becoming the result of great suffering (ends do not justify the means).
