Animal experimentation controversy. Research institutes oppose new initiative by animal rights activists

“Prohibiting animal experiments would very negatively affect new advances”

Animal experiments controversy. European Commission opposes activists initiativeAnimal rights activists sent a letter to the European Commission on 3rd March this year, in which they requested that experiments on animals be banned. Against this proposal, more than 120 different types of research institutes and social organisations have sent another letter to the European Commission opposing this initiative, stating that current legal regulations guarantee the rights of animals used in research, and that prohibiting these experiments would very negatively affect new advances in the field of health (Nature 519, 134,2015, 12-III-2015).
