The Internet Journal of Catholic Bioethics is a peer-reviewed publication from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA. Currently, there are a few book reviews featured. One caught my eye - a review of the novel Sentenced to Science. The reviewer, Krysta Contnio, writes: Sentenced to Science raises a number of ethical issues pertaining to justice, autonomy, nonmaleficence, and informed consent. This dark part of the nation’s history could potentially become today’s practice if proposals for similar experimentation are honored by the Institute of Medicine. In bringing such issues to the forefront, Hornblum effectively shows the lasting detrimental effects of using the vulnerable for the financial and personal advancement of others. Using these individuals as a means to an end is not morally allowable. I look forward to more book reviews like these. If this site had an RSS Feed, I would definitely subscribe!
