On “performance-enhancing drugs” in sport.

I recall years ago an interview with a respected ethicist (who’s name does escape me), who was being sought for his expert opinion on some “sports drugs issue” or other of the day.

He surprised everyone by saying that in his considered estimation, as someone who has a deep understanding of ethics, he could see no ethical reason for performance enhancing drugs to NOT be permitted within professional sports.

I know this will confound many people.

I agreed with him then and I still do.
