There are many websites which argue for and against animal research. They may cover the scientific arguments, the moral arguments or both. The ethical arguments are built on many different principles, which can often have far reaching consequences when taken to their logical extreme. The scientific arguments should be treated with more caution – not all scientific arguments are equal. While we encourage you to investigate the scientific claims for and against animal research, it is important to try to double check your information with established scientific organisations and journals.
