Read the articles on the testing of the Havasupai people.
CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING TO WRITE ABOUT:
1. Although Dr. Markow and her colleagues did investigate a potential genetic connection to diabetes among the Havasupai as they originally had consent to do, they also conducted additional studies for which they did not have specific permission. What do you think was the harm done to the Havasupai by having their blood samples used in research other that the study for which they had originally given consent? Would it make a difference if Dr. Markow’s research had been successful or if other investigators had found genes that lead to potential treatments for health problems suffered by the Havasupai? Would be benefits from those findings have justified the harm? Frame your response in terms of one of the types of ethical dilemmas discussed at the beginning of the course.
2. Compare the distress of the Havasupai over the conflict between their creation story and the scientific evidence from their genetic testing to the conflict some Christians perceive between their creation stories and the scientific evidence for the age of the Earth. How are these conflicts similar and how are they different?
3.Who owns the right to your genetic story? A number of companies such as Ancestry.com and 23 and Me offer genetic testing for a fee, and even offer to reveal information about potential health risks. Both of these companies also offer the ability to compare your results to others in their databases. Who has the right to control that data? Should scientists be allowed to examine potential connections within that database if it might help to unlock answers to genetically linked disorders like Huntington’s Disease? Once you’ve given permission to the company to screen for health risks, is that permission permanent?
