Where science and technology is on the road to progress day-by-day, Ethical issues emerges as a huge hindrance in this process of development. Some revolutionary scientific ideas which might had changed the fate of humanity if execute, has been opposed by so-called ethics!
Ethical issues are ground state for all laws which regulates the acceptance for any scientific experiment in society.
What do you think - Is it okay to evaluate a scientific experiment on the basis of ethical issues??

Ethical issues and hindrance in the progress of science

  1. 1. Deepanshu Sharma B.tech+M.tech (B&B) Converging Technology
  2. 2. How ethical issues influence progress in Science?
  3. 3. To understand this, we will see few cases from history. If those technology/knowledge were not blocked by ‘Ethical Issues’… then they might had changed the fate of human civilization.
  4. 4. His method to reanimate living system was successful and he managed to revive two dogs (Lazarus IV and V) clinically put to death on May 22, 1934 and in 1935. Dr. Robert E. Cornish (1903 –1963) had graduated from the University of California, with honors and received a doctorate by the time he was just 22.
  5. 5. Cornish wished to expand his clinical trials to include human testing. So he contacted judicial system to seek permission to test his experiment on death- row prisoners. Thomas McMonigle offered his body for possible reanimation. But California law enforcement refused Cornish’s petition, however, due to concerns a reanimated murderer would have to be freed under the “double jeopardy” clause.
  6. 6. After denial of the petition, McMonigle was executed in San Quentin's gas chamber on 20 February 1948. And Dr. Cornish had never tested his experiment again. He spent his last days working in a toothpaste company and died at very early age of 60.
  7. 7. Since the first report of the isolation of human stem cells from surplus IVF embryos in 1998, their derivation and use has been hotly debated by governments, press and society in many parts of the world. Driving the debate has been the shortage of donor organs and tissues for regenerative medicine; diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson and rheumatoid arthritis caused by the loss or loss-of-function of specific cell types, could be cured if healthy cells replace defective cells. However, ethical considerations question the instrumental use of embryos for the isolation of stem cells, even if those embryos are surplus to requirements for assisted reproduction and destined for destruction.
  8. 8. Use and production of GMO is also affected by the bars of ethical issues.
  9. 9. Thank you 
