Man and Clinical Experimental
Freedom is essential attribute of human being. From creation man has been giving authority to subdue and have dominion over everything in the universe, so therefore, the attempt by medical scientists to cure and have dominion over all diseases can be justify on one hand and on the other hand there are a lot of question to be answered concerning the process use in performing their activities moral laxity and disregard for human dignity to answer by so many of their activities.
In an attempt by scientists to cure a good number of diseases they have dehumanized mankind.
