Should Participation in Vaccine Clinical Trials be Mandated?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

OMG! American Medical Association's online ethics journal, January 2012: http://virtualmentor.ama-assn.org/2012/01/pfor1-1201.html

"In recent decades there has been a distressing decline in the numbers of healthy volunteers who participate in clinical trials [7], a decline that has the potential to become a key rate-limiting factor in vaccine development."

"Compulsory involvement in vaccine studies is one alternative solution that is not as outlandish as it might seem on first consideration. Many societies already mandate that citizens undertake activities for the good of society." via the American Medical Association's online ethics journal.


Please make this article go VIRAL. Scariest $hit I've seen from the AMA in my 30 years of health care.

I nominate the AMA members and their families as participants.

 

So much for living in a "free" country.

Ok I thought there was more talk than that.  I find it quite interesting either way.  I know a lot of people that do clinical trials for the money.  I can't imagine putting myself through that trash.  One girls got an awesome case of hives.  Well they looked like hives, big welts and they lasted a lot longer than normal.  I'll have to ask her what the trial was for.  I don't know if she's still doing it.  Some people seriously make it a profession.

For the record, what they are suggesting is not compulsory participation in vaccination trials. 

Now hear me out.  I am a non -vaxer so don't throw me under the bus.  I just don't like the spread of misinformation.  It takes away from our credibility.  We need our credibility more than than they do.

 

What they are brainstorming would be similar to the donor registry.  For instance when you apply for or renew your drivers license you would be asked if you want to be put in a database of people who would be interested in participating in vaccination trials.  This what they mean by "mandated choice".  You don't have to participate.  You just have to answer whether or not you want participate or decline.  JUST SAY NO!!!.
