That episode is one of my favorites when it comes to a moral line. That at Ethics from TNG. All medical advances have came at the expense of some lower lifeform, have it be a simple bacteria, primate or even human. When advances are twisted as by Dr. Josef Mengele and others of the past just to ignore that knowledge that they gained in medicine, to me hinders over helps us as a species. When the knowledge is use, it could be a see as a monument of the victims sacrifice not as consent of how that knowledge was obtained. If we were to stop all medical procedures that where obtained by less than today's high ethical standard, everything from blood transfusions to organ transplant would be stopped. Just think you need a new some blood even when all the knowledge was obtained by many death and botched attempts would you not get it just because the knowledge of blood types was found after the deaths. When you think of stems cells and the potential that they have, even if it is found that they can cure many more conditions than though of but, they kill a life and thus are stopped, this does not help us as a species. Have it be knowledge that was gained by a well meaning doctor or a war criminal should not stop the use as long as it is shown to help. But that is just me.
