Ethics and steroids

http://www.scu.edu/ethics/publications/ethicalperspectives/steriods-ethics.html

The use of sport and steroids should not mix together.  Steroids help the athletes to get bigger muscles which will make them faster and stronger.  This is a form of cheating and is illegal if the athletes get caught there will be serious consequences.  This is something that is wrong and athlete’s will take out this drug because they feel that it wil help them win and when an athlete trains as hard as they do they will do anything to be the best.  They will try to do whatever they can.  This is not ethical and this is cheating.  The athlete should really not take part in this drug because this is nt fair and creates a competitive advantage so that when they win it is not their real body doing this so they can not really say that they came first because they were on drugs where the other athletes were doing this in the right way.

On the other hand if someone can take steroids and not get caught then why not.  The athlete is not hurting anyone else because all athletes could take drugs and not get caught.  If there was no way that anyone will get caught then this act would happen all the time because the athletes would want to do it to get stronger and win more medals because this will get them recognition and more money.  The decision is if they can live with themselves knowing that they cheated to win the medal in the first place!

Would you be able to take steroids knowing that you are cheating?

    Let me start off by saying that I in no way agree with steroid use in pro sports today. That being said in sports where most athletes are using, players can not get ahead unless they themselevs use. I belive every pro sports should implement some sort of testing to insure that players are not using steroids. Baseball being a good example. They just started cracking down on steroid use and because of this many hall of fame players have been exposed using steriods. All sports should test.

    I feel that steroids in sports are not as bad as people think. The athletes still have to work out just as hard to become big and strong. Tiger Woods had surgery done to his eyes to make him see further down the course is that a form of cheating? I feel that steroids if used correctly will not hurt you people just abuse it like other substances such as alchol
