Manager's Pro Opinion
Yes, the study conducted by the scientists was unethical. The researched involved a human skeleton. Before conducting the study, the scientists should have checked how the skeleton was found. They should have obtained proper documents or permits to continue with their study. The research may be useful. Yet, scientists must always follow what is right especially when it involves human remains.
No. 0
Manager's Con Opinion
No, the study conducted by the scientists was not unethical. The scientists were not the ones who bought the skeleton. They had permission from the collector to do the study. The scientists offered to study the skeleton in order to understand it. Their study proved that the skeleton belongs to a girl and not an alien as previously thought. Therefore, the scientists did not do anything wrong.

No, the study conducted by the scientists was not unethical.
At first it was treated like an antique, or the remains of an extraterrestrial, and it was told that it was bought and sold many times ever since.
Good enough that the study was done, by doing so it was learned that it's a still birth which may have been the result of chemical elements present in the area because of mining, that were harmful to humans especially to pregnant women.

For me, in the name of science, nothing is unethical. I value knowledge and research over ethics. If it is for the benefit of mankind, it could never be unethical.

No. 3635

It's not unethical to study the skeleton at all. Because of the scientist's curiosity about it. They just proved to all that the skeleton found there should be treated as human corpse and not some kind of artifact of extraterrestrial thing. What scientist did was very ethical and righteous.
