An Introduction to the Philosophical Presuppositions of the Animal Liberation/Rights Movement

JAMA. 1992 Oct 7; 268(13): 1715-1719.
We can no longer afford comfortable but erroneous myths that make the ALRM [animal liberation/rights movement] appear emotional, ignorant, and brainwashed. At its best, the ALRM is intelligent, politically astute, and resourceful. Nevertheless, there are deep philosophical divisions within the ALRM that vitiate their pretense of a unified movement. Recent philosophical efforts in the ALRM already seek ways to begin to overcome the weaknesses in Regan and Singer. More careful attention needs to be paid to these efforts. The future of medical research could be in jeopardy if we fail to understand our most dangerous and sophisticated critics.
