Good scientists, altruistic and noble, good men and women, with only the best interests of their patients at heart. Seeking to find cures for diseases?
White-coat Nazi’s would be a better description.
The Tuskegee syphilis experiment was a experiment on poor, black men in Tuskegee Alabama that lasted 40 years (1932-1972), and refused to give treatments even after penicillin was invented.
Even when people tried to bring this issue to attention, the CDC (Center for Disease Control) over ruled them, and continued the experiment. The CDC wanted the Tuskegee study to continue until all the participants were dead.
The experiment only ended when a researcher went public, the spotlight of media attention was the only reason it ended. It is easy to imagine that these experiments would have continued if the media had not have found out.
This happened because the men involved were black and poor. It happened because people in charge did not care about the lives of those who were being experimented on.
People who do experiments on any living being, whether human or non-human, do not care about their patients, and they do not care about making a better society, they do these things because they can. They have a pathological cruelty and total lack of empathy, they do not see others as having any rights to life at all.
Animals and people become mere things, not individuals. The lives of a few are traded for some imagined good for everyone.
And if this is what they can do to people, imagine what they can do to animals, and people who have no rights. They do these things because they can.
If it is outrageous to do this to people, imagine what it is like for animals.
