Regulation of Animal Experimentation

The authors review the current controversy between animal activists and the scientific community over the use of animals in research and the regulation of such research. They examine existing statutes and proposed federal legislation and conclude that these satisfy neither side. Overcast and Sales argue that animal experimentation regulations must balance three factors which they identify as being at the core of the controversy: (1) benefit to the animal subject or to animals generally, (2) infliction of suffering and restriction of behavior, and (3) benefit to human society. According to this conceptual framework, the authors conclude, additional regulation is neither necessary nor desirable. (KIE abstract)
