Was it Unethical
The mental and physical abuse was clearly unethical. They did not take into consideration the aftermath of what would happen to these people.
Could this Happen Today
No this experiment would not
occur today because it was a form of abuse. Torturing someone in order to change their sexuality would never be allowed today because it is entirely unethical.

The experiment was researching whether or not they could alter someone’s sexuality, into being heterosexual. Victims were subject to Chemical Castration and Electro Shock Therapy in order to cure them of their homosexuality.
