Section 2
Ethics of experiments
During WWII, the Nazis performed experiments on prisoners in concentration camps. Their justification for performing these experiments was based on the need for knowledge about the human body and the reaction to bacteria, temperature variance, starvation, among other information. The information was recorded by the Nazi physicians who performed these experiments.
After reading “Where Do You Stand? The Morality of Immoral Experiments” on page 70 of the text, use your critical thinking skills and the reading this week on ethics to address the following: What is wrong with these experiments? What, if any, was the good that came from these experiments? Are we as a society being too cautious today with experiments that involve people? Where do you stand on these issues?
