    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?

    Thank you for sharing your views.

    Of course it should.

    The problem is, whose ethics?

    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).

    Science has no place in religion ( at least most ), religion should have no place in medical science, IMHO. Yet I also side with what Toefur says.
