Religion and the Use of Animals in Research: Some First Thoughts
Smith, David H.
Ethics and Behavior. 1997; 7(2): 137-147.
Religious traditions can be drawn on in a number of ways to illuminate discussions of the moral standing of animals and the ethical use of animals in scientific research. I begin with some general comments about relevant points in the history of major religions. I then briefly describe American civil religion, including the cult of health, and its relation to scientific research. Finally, I offer a critique of American civil religion from a Christian perspective.
