The Nuremberg code is the best-known example of this.
Shocked by the horrors of Nazi science, the civilized world agreed that tests should never again be conducted on people who hadn’t agreed to take part, and that test subjects should not be knowingly harmed. The Tuskegee Experiment certainly advanced science, but it was so brutally cruel and inhumane that we shake our heads at the thought that this could have been done to human beings, here in America.
The Nuremberg code was invoked by activists outraged when the Bush administration, at the chemical industry’s urging, proposed tests of pesticides on pregnant mothers and children. Someday, we'll likely do the same at the thought of destroying the bodies of unborn children for science.
The "As ideology, Bush’s restrictions on embryonic stem cell funding were legitimate.
In fact, if one familiarizes oneself with the arguments within the Bush and Obama Administrations on the question of ESCR, it's clear which side is the thoughtful and scientific side, and which embraces "progress" at any price. Leon Kass, former head of Bush's President's Council on Bioethics, argued "that bioethics should define societal goals or ends before we decide whether to pursue various types of biotechnology," and understood the need to keep ethical considerations at the forefront in the midst of scientific pursuits: "As Kass wrote nearly 40 years ago, we must begin 'with a serious deliberation about our ends and purposes' in biomedical technology, because 'it is indeed the height of irrationality triumphantly to pursue rationalized techniques while insisting that ends or purposes lie beyond rational discourse.' As an example, the first sentence of one of the council’s publications asks: 'What is biotechnology for? Kass and the rest of the Council weren't "anti-science," obviously.
Kass has a doctorate in biology from Harvard, and did molecular biology research at the National Institutes of Health before entering the field of bioethics.
Bush's administration is anti-science, he isolated a familiar pair of culprits: climate change and stem cells.
And if the legacy of the stem cell debate is to label all conscientious objection as anti-science bias, it will be a toxic legacy indeed." This is a great point. And science is quite clear on it: life begins at conception.
In fact, the one mistake the editorial makes is in treating the question of when life begins as if it were a moral or ethical question. In that scientific understanding is one which informs our policy actions: for example, it's illegal to destroy fertilized bald eagle eggs, because , with DNA and epigenetic material distinct from both zygotes and both parents.
These represent, he said, 'two solid issues in which there is a real difference between a strong consensus in the science community and the response of the administration to that consensus.'" There's a world of difference between Kennedy's two examples.
For climate change, he's alleging that the Bush administration ignored or misrepresented the data in order to advance their political agenda. But for stem-cell, the Bush administration didn't deny that stem cell had medical promise.
