Julian H. Franklin on the Use of Animals in Research

Animal Ethics

To inflict death or pain on animals for scientific or medical research is wrong morally, and ought to be prohibited. They may be killed in order to protect the health of humans (and other animals) if they are infected with a serious disease and cannot be quarantined.

Worldwide Primates Inc. was started by Mathew Block to import primates into the US for animal experimentation.
