I am seeking council in regards to a potential bioethical dilemma with my job. I sell products used for medical diagnostics - and to this juncture, the products I have sold have primarily been used for cancer diagnostics.
However, due to growth of the business, we may begin selling products that could potentially be used for quite unethical purposes - including prenatal testing that could potentially lead to eugenics influenced abortions. These products have other good purposes, including additional cancer tests, etc.
I am aware that some of the diagnostic products I have sold to this point seem to have been used for unethical purposes (i.e. doctors ordering tests primarily to make money instead of for their clinical utility) - however, these new tests I could potentially be selling seem to be charting new ground.
Do you have any advice for me? I know there are degrees of culpability in relation to evil acts, and that your "closeness" to said act is typically part of the equation...
