Defending Laboratory Rats

Nice article about people who are committed to defending "lab rats" used for medical research.

I've worked with rats and I find them charming and intelligent creatures. So I think it's sad to read this....

"You see people shut down if you talk about how a rat can suffer," says Chad Sandusky, director of toxicology and research at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a group that fights for animal rights and advocates vegetarianism.

These are of course the same people that have no problem watching that stupid Ratatouille movie (or however you spell it) and saying how "cute" it is.
