  • BioEdge: Force-feeding continues at Guantanamo Bay
    for Human Rights By allowing the cruel and degrading practice of force feeding to continue the court has essentially authorized the continuation of an abusive tactic that violates human rights and fundamental medical ethics The detainees being forced fed are being held in indefinite detention which is in itself a violation of human rights according to the PHR A preliminary injunction would have at least stopped force feeding which constitutes ill treatment and could rise to the level of torture However two of the three judges said the detainees did have a right to challenge the practice in court paving the way for a continuing legal battle over the issue The judges also pointed that that force feeding is a painful and invasive process that raises serious ethical concerns MORE ON THESE TOPICS force feeding Guantanamo Bay This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us for permission and fees Some articles on this site are published
