Is this how bioethics ends?

On the Health in the Global Village blog, Leigh Turner writes:

"Even if members of AJOB’s Editorial Board circle the wagons now, the credibility of the journal has been destroyed.  The destruction of AJOB’s academic standing was completed when Glenn McGee went to work for a company profiting from sale of clinically unproven, non-FDA-approved stem cells to vulnerable, chronically ill patients, and his friends and colleagues failed to address the situation.  Instead, they chose to respond with bluster, denials, and face-saving accusations directed at anyone unwilling to remain silent and accept their conduct."
