Nothing Human/Moral Perspectives on Exobiology

As Crell's real-life Mengele-like practices are exposed, there's a big hubbub on the ship. Many are outraged at the prospect of using this hologram or any of his medical assistance to heal B'Elanna, herself included, and protest in the hopes of preventing it. They maintain that by using Crell's findings, they are tacitly condoning his research practice.

What are your thoughts? If you were in B'Elanna's position, would you have a problem being treated by Crell? Would it make a difference whether or not the Crell hologram itself performed the procedure or if someone else performed it using his research findings and medical techniques?

Would you make the same call if you were the Captain?

And do you think it was right for the Doctor to have completely deleted Moset's program from the computer? Was there any ethical value in deleting a holographic representation of this character?
