Should Participation in Clinical Trials be Mandated?

Before you freak out at the very question, realize that I am just repeating the title of the opinion piece. Very disturbing:

This effectively negates her entire argument:

"financial inducement is an ethically unacceptable solution to the recruitment shortage . . . "

But forcing people to test vaccines isn't?

How do people this intellectually defective get through PhD programs? Seriously.

I will volunteer for boatloads of vaccine trials . . . if I can see a list of all ingredients for every single one before I sign any consent forms(besides those pertaining to intellectual property rights). There. I've called Doctor Bobo's bluff smiling smiley

They have those trials where you stay at the university hosptial overnight...I was tempted to agree to a sleep trial because it involved no meds but it was too freaky to have to sleep in a strange place and have people watching me! My brother signed up as a lab rat in college. Ugh--I would never do such a thing, even for decent money.

I did it. I was taking a certain brand of BC pill at the time and the testing was to see if a med would interfere with it resulting in pregnancy for a slew of unsuspecting women. I was young, the pay was good, it was a fairly simple drug (version of something already on the market that had no real side effects). No biggy. The worst part was giving blood, that SUCKED. I think I slept over one night too.
I wouldn't do it again, if being forced I'd put up a stink for certain.

It's creepy that the idea of MANDATORY tests is being bandied about in such a mainstream publication as the AMA...Sounds rather fascist and I don't feel like I'm exaggerating!
