"Keep it Quiet": Little Support to Protect Non-Consenting Targets of Testing

1. New Scientist Magazine, week Oct 21-27, 2006 reports:
page 29 -
"Keep it Quiet" the number of US govt agency patents blocked by Pentagon secrecy orders (so far - my addition here) in 2006
Armed Services patents advisory Board: 3
Army 2
Navy 36
Air Force: 40
Dept of Energy: 7
Natl Security Agency: 20
Source of information: US PTA

Evaluation of the above stats is consistent with what all of TIs believe to be source of problems we suffer. This shows that it is likely to remain a consistent course of technological development as we understand them at this time.

Learn more and support U.S. Senator Charles Grassley.

Number 2: Pg 8

Issue at hand is experimental medical testing of people taking place without their knowledge or consent.

The article "A Life and Death Dilemma" reports that EMT's have been doing experimental testing of products on unconscious patients for private industry. What is worse is that the patient has continued to be treated for 12 [years] with experimental treatment after they were admitted to the hospital.

Two named groups have opposed this with such persistence that now the government has responded:

1. The government’s own office - The Office for Human Research Protections- a department within the Dept of Health and Human Services - expressed their concerns apparently through a letter written by Iowa Senator Charles Grassley.

2. A call has gone out for creating a National Advisory Board to be formed to advise at local level when decisions for non-consensual testing is undertaken, but it has little support.

NOTE: PAGE 9 STATES THAT IN THE UK, THE GOVT IS POISED TO AMEND THE LAW THE MAKE IT EASIER FOR DOCTORS TO GIVE EXPERIMENTAL MEDICAL TREATMENT IN AN EMERGENCY....which would make it possible to enter an incapacitated person into a clinical trial involving emergency medicine before seeking consent from his or her legal reps.
