Miss Ever’s Boys Bioethical Writing Assignment
In the movie “Miss Ever’s Boys”, the public health service decided in 1932 to conduct a study in Macon County, Alabama to examine the sequences of untreated syphilis in African-American patients by using the facilities of the Tuskegee Institute. African-American people, who lived in poverty and lacked the medical health care were told that they would be given ...view middle of the document...

Hundreds of African-American were involved in what was known as “The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male”. Though the study was never revealed or explained to them. The disease was never treated even when penicillin became available.
The subjects of Penicillin were not afforded the option of getting the shots because depending on the stage of syphilis, penicillin may not be a safe treatment option. They did point to the first study-in-nature that in some people syphilis goes away without treatments. I think it would be unethical today for researchers to conduct an experiment in which some people with syphilis would receive treatments and others wouldn’t. I believe the judging of the Tuskegee study wasn’t fair considering things were different in the 1940s. However, they should have made the African-Americans aware of their real medical status and information about penicillin. The military was even affected by syphilis. Some African-American men were given penicillin upon joining the military during World War II.
All in all, they never found a cure for syphilis other than penicillin.
