Animal Wrongs

“The animals who are poisoned, drugged, mutilated, and killed in British laboratories all feel pain and fear, just like we do, but experimenters continue to treat them as disposable tools rather than intelligent, sensitive beings.” http://www.peta.org.uk/blog/damning-report-reveals-animals-suffered-3-94-million-british-experiments-2016/

The animal research paradox: if other animals don’t feel as we would in those intolerable circumstances, then they’re not good models for human physiology. If they do, then subjecting them to these abhorrent practices is unethical.
