Frances Ames Quote
All individuals are imperfect and forgetful and find it difficult to transcend immediate self-interest. Historically therefore it has been deemed essential to create constitutional bodies that uphold and insist on adherence to certain ethical standards... If all these medical ethical bodies are to gain the respect of the public they should remain alert to intervene whenever these standards are threatened.
