Malaysian Official Says God Made Animals for Testing
MAY 31, 2010
A Malaysian government official defended an Indian company's plans to build an animal testing medicine lab in his state, saying Monday that God created monkeys and rats for experiments to benefit humans. The activists say Malaysia has no regulations on animal research, which could lead to test subjects being abused. But Malacca Chief Minister Mohamad Ali Rustam said the lab had received state approval, and animal testing was necessary to make drugs.
