A Reluctant Vivisector

For all of you who think there are no moral quandaries to vivisection and animal research, read this. At least someone who has conducted animal research has a conscience and is willing to write about it....

In fact, read the whole 5-part series in Slate. Read it and tell me that the end, or even the simple limitation, of animal research is nothing more than "darn government regulators! They just want to take away our rights to research!"

Animal research proponents are starting to sound like the National Rifle Association (NRA) in the US.

Well... after reading most of the author's replies and comments it's clear he has managed to separate and comparmentalize his income from his ability for compassion.

If the (government) money were not there... these practices would be in the ancient pages of our darkest history books as they should be.
