The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has finalized a rule that removes the requirement to obtain informed consent for medical research.
“This final rule allows an exception from the requirement to obtain informed consent when a clinical investigation poses no more than minimal risk to the human subject,” the rule reads.
The rule went into effect on January 22, 2024.
No, this is not a conspiracy theory. You can find the change right there in the federal register.
The rules change is said to include only “minimal risk” studies, but then again, we have been told repeatedly that medical procedures like getting a COVID vaccine are risk-free, and things like puberty blockers are “completely reversible,” so you might think twice about their definition of “minimal risk.” They will decide what is “minimal risk”.
