The "brave" animal researchers are taking their argument to the public and bypassing animal right activists.
Here's an example...a billboard funded by the Foundation for Biomedical Research.
"Ever had leprosy. Thanks to animal research, you won't."
I for one welcome them coming out of the woodwork and forcing animal research into the public forum. Let's discuss the research. Let's talk about what they do, and why, and how. Let's talk about the redundancy, the waste, the pain. Let's see the pictures. If we can't outlaw the practice, perhaps researchers will become more transparent. Then we can finally stop the horrific abuses that they perpetrate within their windowless ivory towers.
