Human experiments without proper consent?
(Above image: one of the infants enrolled in the federally-backed SUPPORT study)
This week on Full Measure, questions about modern informed consent: the tragic story of the federally-funded SUPPORT study that enrolled premature babies nationwide. Parents were never told about possible blindness and death. The government’s own ethics body found the consent forms failed to disclose those serious risks. Some babies died as a result of the study. But the researchers say they had no way to know those risks ahead of time, and claim the overall group of babies was better off in the study.
Also on Sunday’s program: we’ll look at fundraising totals for the top candidates and where their biggest “outside” money is coming from. There’s also a humorous look at the people who may be enjoying this campaign season more than any other: political cartoonists.
