Animal Rights v. Animal Research: A Modest Proposal
Journal of Medical Ethics. 1996 Oct; 22(5): 300-301.
The practical problem of assuaging the opponents of animal research may be solved without formally addressing (or resolving) the underlying ethical questions of the debate. Specifically, a peaceful boycott of the "fruits" of animal research may lead to a wider cessation of such research, than, say, vocal or even violent protest. To assist those who might wish to participate in such a boycott -- and, moreover, to critically inform them of the implications of their actions -- I offer a modest proposal: the use of an "animal research advance directive", a form which enumerates precisely which "fruits of research" are declined.
