Wild Card's description 
All ethical issues are removed from research and development, but there is an uprising of an opposition until there are calls for researchers to be accused of murder. As research trials on humans becomes prevalent, vulnerable sections of society (homeless, people with mental illness, 3rd world societies) are exploited and become guinea pigs for very risky research trials.
