How 'Bout a Little Perspective

Dr. Alan Stone of Harvard is horrified -- horrified! -- by reports that doctors at Guantanamo Bay may have participated in efforts to impose psychological or physical pressure on detainees in order to obtain information that could save American lives. Even "coercive methods based on psychiatric evaluations that reveal the fears, concerns, and anxieties of the detainee" should be off the table, he apparently believes.

Otherwise, it's a violation of medical ethics, he informs us.

Any comments from Dr. Stone on the practice of partial birth abortion?
