I can see how the Lacks family would be hurt by not knowing the cells were out there, however I do think that they were used for the greater good and therefore I fall on the side of science. What is upsetting is not that the Lacks weren't compensated, honestly, I don't think there should be a form of compensation, people give blood, marrow ect all of the time for the greater good, the upsetting thing is that they didn't know it was happening. And to me, that is the inherent problem. Someone should have sat down, really sat down, and explained to the family what her cells were being used for. As poor, uneducated people, they couldn't understand even the high level science that the doctors and researchers were saying to them.
