Yes, private labs should be subject to the same ethical standards as state-funded scientific experiments, otherwise their experiments will not have any credibility. Experiments that are not allowed should not be done in back rooms when no one is looking. We should all agree on standards, and each scientist needs to abide by them, regardless of who they work for.
The private labs are largely held to the same ethical standards as state-funded science experiments. The disparity between public and private experiments is largely an invention of public perception, rather than grounded in fact. Scientists are held to high ethical and procedural standards as part of their training, and the research field is already highly self regulated, in addition to government regulated.
Private labs absolutely need to be subjected to the same ethical standards as state-funded scientific experiments. Otherwise, these labs are given free reign to experiment at will, regardless of any ethical code. This means that potentially unethical and terrible experiments are being carried out that can ultimately harm human beings.
Private labs should be required to uphold the same ethical standards that are used in state funded experiments. This will ensure that the studies and research that is being done is not harmful or dangerous to others. It will also create a fair environment for research and study in the world.
Private labs should not be subject to the same ethical standards as state-funded scientific experiments. They are totally different and should not be held to the same standards. Many of the private labs do not have the funding needed to sustain these testing procedures. I think if we want to hold them to the same standards then they should be funded by the state.
