End cruel rat lab tests
01 October 2009 ~ 16:29I was very impressed to read a letter in today's Metro newspaper from a guy who obviously feels the same way as I do about pointless animal experiments. We often read of experiments from the school of the bleedin' obvious, but this 'weird science' is so pointless and cruel and whatsmore it is our tax money that is going towards paying for these mad scientists to make their dubious living. Personally I don't know how they sleep at night.
Here is the letter. I have omitted the gentleman's name for privacy's sake:
"I was perplexed at the article regarding babies who have suffered injury having a higher pain threshold as teenagers, according to experiments on rats (Metro, Tuesday). Am I to take it from this that scientists have been deliberately injuring baby rats then subjecting them to pain in later life?
