Ethical Issues Related to Testing Anthrax Vaccine on Children

Story at-a-glance -

  • The US government has proposed the need for a trial in children of anthrax vaccine, framing it as a necessary step in protecting them from the effects of a potential future bioterrorism attack using weaponized anthrax
  • The Alliance for Human Research Protection (AHRP) is in strong opposition to the trial and has submitted an exposé to Amy Gutman, PhD, Chair of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues
  • Experimenting on the most vulnerable members of our society with a dangerous vaccine without the promise of any benefit to them is heartless, unethical and unnecessary, not to mention violates a number of federal regulations protecting children
  • The entire premise that we are at high risk for a bioterrorist attack is erroneous, and the idea that a vaccine is needed is ludicrous when antibiotics have proven 100 percent effective for anthrax exposure
  • The AHRP suggests the government’s motivation for this vaccine trial may be a backdoor effort to capitalize on the public’s post-9/11 fear with the goal of expanding civilian vaccinations and increasing vaccine profits by any means possible, while turning a blind eye to the well-known risks
