Animal rights


, : Animal rights. Science 278: 7-60

A number of letters respond to Deborah Runkle and Ellen Granger's editorial "Animal Rights: Teaching or Deceiving Kids," which appeared in the September 5, 1997, issue and examined attempts by the animal rights movement to influence schoolchildren. Most of the letters are sympathetic to the use of animals in research and emphasize the importance of animal research to medical and scientific progress. Some say that they observe extremism on both sides of the debate and call for moderation. A few writers voice their objections to any form of testing on animals and accuse the research community of being in favor of vivisection.
