Ethical Obligation Or A Drug With Dangerous Adverse Effects That Need To Be Hidden?

Last Updated on August 17, 2022 by Shaun Snapp

Executive Summary

  • The term ethical considerations are used as an excuse for pharmaceutical companies to end clinical trials early.
  • This is done to hide the adverse effects of the drug.


We have observed a pattern when hearing that a study needed to be ended early because the

Results were so good, it would be unethical to deny the control group the treatment.

And this is that the results are not actually that good, but that the pharmaceutical company needs an excuse to end the study early. This article will explain how pharmaceutical companies repeatedly use this tactic.

Ethical Obligation, Or A Drug With Dangerous Side Effects That Need To Be Hidden?

An excellent example of this is found in the clinical trials of the covid vaccines. The excuse was given that after The FDA granted emergency Use Authorization, the study needed to be halted after only two months. After the FDA had provided the EUA, it would have been unethical to deny the control group the treatment.

The Canadian Covid Care Alliance

The following graphic from the Canadian Covid Care Alliance shows what happened to the study when the control or placebo group was added to the test group after two months.

This graphic shows that the placebo group was removed, which begs why the study was unblinded early. Observe the quote from the bottom right corner of the graphic.

This term “ethical obligation” has been used many times in the past and was used again by Dr. Fauci to stop the long-term testing of Remdesivir, which is a deadly drug. This is covered in the article How Gilead Brought Off the NIH’s Support of Remdesivir.

Pharmaceutical Companies Can’t-Wait To End Studies Early

Pharmaceutical companies love abbreviated studies, and it allows them to hide the long-term adverse reactions from their drugs more effectively. Drug companies have a special department inside them where they come up with excuses as to why the study needs to be shortened.

Billions of people would take these vaccines. Still, according to the drug companies, they had an “ethical obligation” to stop their study from being able to test the adverse reactions of 18,000 or so people in the control group. Anytime “ethical obligation” is used as logic for ending a clinical trial early, one can be assured that the drug has dangerous side effects.


The term ethical obligation was a scam term used to end the study early to bury the safety problems with the vaccines. It had zero scientific basis and was made up by the pharmaceutical companies and supported by the FDA.

Finally, the FDA wanted to approve virtually any vaccine, as they were under tremendous political pressure to do so. This is explained in the article How Emergency Use Authorization For The Covid Vaccines Is A Get Out Of Jail Free Card For the FDA.
