Does passing laws make doctors more ethical?

Daniel Carlat apparently thinks so. In his latest post, in which he pokes fun of a new organization dedicated to opposing the backlash against medicine-industry collaboration, he writes (my italics):

Everybody’s buzzing about the new organization and website, ACRE, whose purpose is to stem the tide of legislation that is rehabilitating the ethics of physicians.

Legislation is rehabilitating our ethics? A credulous statement indeed from such a skeptic as he.
