I had no idea that the US FDA has approvedmaking healthy short kids taller with injections.

The milestone was passed July 25, when the Food and Drug Administration officially recognized the practice of giving supplemental injections of human growth hormone to healthy but short children who have normal levels hGh.

This is a substantial change. My question is whether the FDA should be allowed to make this kind of ethical decision on behalf of the US people? Surely its role is to make sure drugs are safe, not whether they should or should not be used.
