Ethical review of regulatory toxicology guidelines involving experiments on animals: the example of endocrine disrupters. (1/32)

The safety assessment of new chemicals (including medicines, pesticides, food additives, and industrial chemicals) relies on the results of animal experiments. Because the safety of those exposed to these products and the welfare of the experimental animals used are considered critically important, both testing requirements and the welfare of experimental animals are controlled by law. In the U.K., projects that propose to use animals for experimental purposes, including for the testing of chemicals, have been controlled by law for over a century, with the most recent legislation (Animals [Scientific Procedures] Act of 1986) requiring a cost/benefit assessment before it may proceed. New regulations introduced in 1998 will require an ethical review process for all projects from April 1999. Such ethical review will have to take account of the toxicity testing methods and schemes that are required by the legislation aimed at protecting human health. Neither national nor international proposals for toxicity testing methods and schemes are generally subjected to ethical review from the point of protecting animal welfare. The international nature of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry means that testing requirements from one of the major national regulatory agencies (USA, EU, or Japan) or the international organizations (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development [OECD]or the International Conference on Harmonization [ICH]) have an impact on the testing carried out by industrial organizations in all countries. The recent proposals for screening and testing chemicals to identify endocrine disrupters (ED) from the Endocrine Disrupter Screening and Testing Advisory Committee (EDSTAC) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are used as an example of the interaction between regulatory proposals and animal welfare issues. The current proposals are the most extravagant in the use of animals. Between 0.6 and 1.2 million animals would be required for each 1000 chemicals tested. The EPA, before incorporating them into regulation, is subjecting the recommendations to further review. This will undoubtedly moderate the number of animals actually used from the worst-case calculation. The variables that have the greatest impact on the number of animals required for testing are the prevalence of ED chemicals in the chemicals to be tested, and the sensitivity and specificity of the testing methods. The modeling demonstrates, for example, that increasing the prevalence from 10 to 50% reduces the number of animals used to detect one ED from 10,000 to 2700. Knowledge of the prevalence of EDs in the chemicals to be tested would allow rational selection of tier one screening based on the sensitivity and specificity of the screening tests. The EDSTAC proposals are difficult to justify from an ethical perspective, as equally effective detection rates may be achieved with fewer animals. National and international regulatory testing proposals should be subjected to formal independent ethical review before they are finalized, with a view to improving animal welfare.  (+info)

A reply to Joseph Bernstein. (2/32)

Dr. Bernstein suggests that anti-vivisectionists should be able to fill in a directive requesting that they receive no medical treatment developed through work on animals. It is replied that this would only be reasonable if research not using animals had long been funded as adequately and its results were currently available.  (+info)

A chair on alternatives? (3/32)

An overview is given on the legal framework in Europe for the use of experimental animals set by EU (European Union) Directive 86/609/EEC and on the activities of EU member states to implement this directive in the field of regulatory testing in animals. The significant decrease in the number of experimental animals in Germany during the past decade is described with particular reference to the recent increase that is due to transgenic animal models. From the regulatory and the animal welfare perspective the international harmonisation of test guidelines and the mutual acceptance of data are the way forward for chemical safety testing. The recent White Paper of the EU Commission for the future chemicals policy calls for an immediate increase in the number of validated in vitro toxicity tests to be accepted for regulatory purposes in the EU. In addition, deficits of properly educating young scientists in Germany in conducting animal experiments and implementing the 3-Rs concept of Russel and Burch are described. It is therefore, quite urgent to establish new chairs on animals and alternatives at universities in Europe. They should focus on both education young students of the biomedical sciences in the humane use of laboratory animals according to the 3-Rs concept and on developing new toxicity tests to be validated for regulatory purposes under the new EU chemicals policy by the established validation centres in Europe.  (+info)

Replacement, reduction and refinement. (4/32)

In 1959, William Russell and Rex Burch published "The Principles of Humane Experimental Technique". They proposed that if animals were to be used in experiments, every effort should be made to Replace them with non-sentient alternatives, to Reduce to a minimum the number of animals used, and to Refine experiments which used animals so that they caused the minimum pain and distress. These guiding principles, the "3 Rs" of animal research, were initially given little attention. Gradually, however, they have become established as essential considerations when animals are used in research. They have influenced new legislation aimed at controlling the use of experimental animals, and in the United Kingdom they have become formally incorporated into the Animal (Scientific) Procedures Act. The three principles, of Replacement, Reduction and Refinement, have also proven to be an area of common ground for research workers who use animals, and those who oppose their use. Scientists, who accept the need to use animals in some experiments, would also agree that it would be preferable not to use animals. If animals were to be used, as few as possible should be used and they should experience a minimum of pain or distress. Many of those who oppose animal experimentation, would also agree that until animal experimentation is stopped, Russell and Burch's 3Rs provide a means to improve animal welfare. It has also been recognised that adoption of the 3Rs can improve the quality of science. Appropriately designed experiments that minimise variation, provide standardised optimum conditions of animals care and minimise unnecessary stress or pain, often yield better more reliable data. Despite the progress made as a result of attention to these principles, several major problems have been identified. When replacing animals with alternative methods, it has often proven difficult to formally validate the alternative. This has proven a particular problem in regulatory toxicology, especially when combined with the labyrinthine processes of the various regulatory authorities. The principle of Reduction would appear less contentious, but its application has highlighted the difficulties of providing appropriate expert statistical advice, especially in academic research facilities. In some instances, concern to implement Reduction strategies can result in the use of too few animals, which leads to inconclusive results, and wasteful experiments. It is in the area of Refinement, however, that major problems have arisen. Much of our judgement of what represents Refinement is based on little more than common sense. We make assumptions about animals and their feelings that often have little scientific basis. In many instances we may be correct, but these assumptions may become incorporated into institutional or national policies, without any attempt to verify them. To give an example - it is reasonable to assume that animals will experience pain after a surgical procedure, so pain-relieving drugs should be given to prevent this. We have some idea of the appropriate dose of analgesics for most animals, but effective pain relief requires that dose given is adjusted to meet the requirements of the individual animal. Requiring every animal to have the same dose of the same drug after any surgical procedure is not the best way of dealing with post-operative pain. Discussion of these problems should not detract from the very significant progress that has been made in the 40 or so years since Russell and Burch set out their guiding principles. What is needed now is greater academic focus on this area, not only to work on new methods of implementing the 3Rs, but also to disseminate current "Best Practice", and to revise this advice as further progress is made.  (+info)

Science and society: different bioethical approaches towards animal experimentation. (5/32)

The use of live animals for experiments plays an important role in many forms of research. This gives rise to an ethical dilemma. On the one hand, most of the animals used are sentient beings who may be harmed by the experiments. The research, on the other hand, may be vital for preventing, curing or alleviating human diseases. There is no consensus on how to tackle this dilemma. One extreme is the view taken by adherents of the so-called animal rights view. According to this view, we are never justified in harming animals for human purposes - however vital these purposes may be. The other extreme is the ruthless view, according to which animals are there to be used at our discretion. However, most people have a view situated somewhere between these two extremes. It is accepted that animals may be used for research - contrary to the animal rights view. However, contrary to the ruthless view, that is only accepted under certain conditions. The aim of this presentation is to present different ethical views which may serve as a foundation for specifying the circumstances under which it is acceptable to use animals for research. Three views serving this role are contractarianism, utilitarianism and a deontological approach. According to contractarianism, the key ethical issue is concern for the sentiments of other human beings in society, on whose co-operation those responsible for research depend. Thus it is acceptable to use animals as long as most people can see the point of the experiment and are not offended by the way it is done. According to utilitarianism, the key ethical issue is about the consequences for humans and animals. Thus it is justified to use animals for research if enough good comes out of it in terms of preventing suffering and creating happiness, and if there is no better alternative. In the deontological approach the prima facie duty of beneficence towards human beings has to be weighed against the prima facie duties not to harm animals and to respect their integrity. By weighing these prima facie duties, the moral problem of animal experimentation exists in finding which duty actually has to be considered as the decisive duty. It will be argued that these three views, even though they will all justify animal experimentation to some extent, will do so in practice under different conditions. Many current conflicts regarding the use of animals for research may be better understood in light of the conflict between the three bioethical perspectives provided by these views.  (+info)

Ahimsa and alternatives -- the concept of the 4th R. The CPCSEA in India. (7/32)

The Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA) in India is one of a kind in the world. It is a statutory body of the government of India formed by an act of the Indian parliament. This body consists of nominated members and representatives from national regulatory agencies, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Ministry of Environment and Forests, national academic and research councils, premier research institutes, eminent scientists and animal welfare organisations. The CPCSEA draws its powers from the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act of 1960 which states that the duty of the committee is "to take all such measures as may be necessary to ensure that animals are not subject to unnecessary pain or suffering before, during or after the performance of experiments on them". With the power to promulgate its own laws to ensure the humane and ethical use of animals in research and education, the CPCSEA in 1998 notified in the gazette of India the "Breeding of and Experiments on Animals (Control and Supervision) Rules 1998". The CPCSEA is unique in that the law in itself has enabled the creation of a common platform of discussion for scientists and animal activists for humane and progressive solutions for the use of animals in experimentation. In a country that is caught in a paradox of violence and rich cultural and religious traditions, India still draws a lot of its power from the concept of "Ahimsa" (the philosophy of non-violence). This concept is also pertinent to the use of animals in laboratories. Unethical, inhumane and unscientific practices, and ignorance of the use of alternatives were the way of science until 1999 when CPCSEA became functional. For four years CPCSEA has waged a battle, rescued thousands of animals from laboratories, fought legal battles to victory, enforced for the first time in the country good laboratory practice, designed guidelines for the use of animals in the production of immunobiologicals, introduced the credo of 3R principles, trained and taught scientific personnel the credibility of humane science and most importantly brought forward the concept of the fourth R, "rehabilitation" of used laboratory animals. Today CPCSEA has made it a national policy that personnel using experimental animals have a moral responsibility towards these animals after their use. Costs of after-care/rehabilitation of animals post experimentation are to be a part of research costs and should be scaled in positive correlation with the level of sentience of the animals. This paper is about the Indian law on animal experimentation and the success story of the CPCSEA in India in inculcating the credo of 4Rs -- Replacement, Reduction, Refinement, and Rehabilitation of animals used in experimentation.  (+info)

Laboratory animals and the art of empathy. (8/32)

Consistency is the hallmark of a coherent ethical philosophy. When considering the morality of particular behaviour, one should look to identify comparable situations and test one's approach to the former against one's approach to the latter. The obvious comparator for animal experiments is non-consensual experiments on people. In both cases, suffering and perhaps death is knowingly caused to the victim, the intended beneficiary is someone else, and the victim does not consent. Animals suffer just as people do. As we condemn non-consensual experiments on people, we should, if we are to be consistent, condemn non-consensual experiments on animals. The alleged differences between the two practices often put forward do not stand up to scrutiny. The best guide to ethical behaviour is empathy--putting oneself in the potential victim's shoes. Again to be consistent, we should empathise with all who may be adversely affected by our behaviour. By this yardstick, too, animal experiments fail the ethical test.  (+info)

Were heartbroken to learn that a member of Seattles vegan community has killed himself.. Of course, he belonged to many communities - family, friends, people who saw him regularly but were acquaintances - and that means a lot of very painful grieving is happening now. Our love and wishes for healing go out to everyone whose lives he touched and who is hurting.. Its also a good time to remember that suicide is something we can and should talk about - that expressing whats in our hearts at a time like this can help us heal and eventually motivate us to find out more about suicides warning signs and what we can do about them..

A permit to hunt down and kill an endangered black rhino in Namibia has been sold at an auction for $350,000, in a move that has been slammed by the animal rights activists.
Medical ethics, as defined by Wikipedia.org, is the discipline of evaluating the merits, risks and social concerns of activities in the medical field. Medical ethics provide suggestions and principles that doctors and other healthcare professionals should take into consideration while treating patients. These principles include the Hippocratic Oath of do no harm; the patient s right to dignity, truthfulness and honesty; acting in the best interest of the patient; justice with regard to treatment and the patient s right to choose or refuse treatment (Wikipedia). These principles do not provide answers to doctors and healthcare professionals with regard to actual cases; they act as a guide in decision-making. Many doctors, scientists and healthcare professionals look to medical ethics for guidance in making life and death decisions. Medical ethics also extends itself to animals and animal rights. Acting in the best interests of animals is important since they have provided and continue to provide ...
In essence, and briefly, the goal of this blog and of the main site - www.geari.org is to assist individuals in conducting research on issues related to animal rights. Over the years this has meant many things. Very commonly, it is with questions students have when putting together a research paper. Also, quite commonly, it is an individual just diving into trying to figure out what companies test on animals. Regardless of the question, my goal is to help you find the answer. Again, my background is in libraries and library science, and so I am professionally and personally committed to delivering timely, relevant and legitimate information. This is my only agenda.

Posted on 01/25/2005 2:18:45 AM PST by nickcarraway. Twelve years ago, the Liberal British MP Lord Alton quit the House of Commons largely because his party supported abortion on demand, but opposed the use of goldfish as fairground prizes. The depravity of the situation was too much even for a liberal parliamentarian. The lord resigned forthwith. The goldfish controversy was back the other week as the ruling Labour Party considered a ban on animals as competition prizes. After an intense debate that must have resembled a Monty Python skit, ministers decided that with elections coming up they would look very silly indeed if they pressed for the goldfish ban. Similarly the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals appeared rather silly after it recently lost its appeal to halt a California Milk Producers Advisory Boards Happy Cows advertising campaign. PETA objected to the campaigns tag line Great Cheese comes from Happy Cows. Happy Cows come from California. PETA ...

In particular, Americans could learn from a popular movement in Britain that is standing up to the threats and intimidation of the animal

Citing inclement weather and heavy traffic, an animal rights group is pushing to ban horse carriage rides in Old Sacramento, a staple of the historic town. Rick Newborn has been doing the carriage rides for 30 years and says he takes steps to ensure that the horses are comfortable, even in hot weather. Still, the group thinks the practice should be banned.

Dear Rick Hansen:. I hope that during your next 25 years of raising money for spinal cord research (SCR) we will see the end of inhumane, scientifically fallacious spinal cord experiments on animals. It was 25 years ago when Lifeforce, a Vancouver based ecology and animal rights organization, gave you extensive data about the failure of "animal models" but you went on to fund animal experiments. Your Boards have had many vivisectors directing your funding priorities. You have raised millions of dollars for SCR as the "Man in Motion". Your "dream" for a cure is a nightmare for animals.. It is time to stop the barbaric experiments that have been repeated for over 50 years. New technologies, clinical/ epidemiological studies permit humane studies with humans. That is how breakthroughs are discovered!. Your money raised for SCR includes experiments on animals in which they are intentionally paralysed and subjected to abusive tests. Numerous doctors agree that vivisection retards scientific progress ...
Tom Regan is Professor of philosophy at North Carolina State University and a leading animal rights advocate. His best known work is in the form of his book The Case for Animal Rights (1983).. Regans position on animal rights and how it differs from that of Singers.. Regan disagrees with Singers utilitarian program for animal liberation, for he rejects utilitarianism as lacking a notion of intrinsic worth. According to Regan, animals and humans all have equal intrinsic value on which their right to life and concern are based. This is precisely where Regan and Singer philosophically differ as Singer does not take into account this intrinsic value that Regan argues for; that utilitarianism lacks.. Regan calls for the total abolition of the use of animals in science, the total dissolution of the commercial animal agriculture system, and the total elimination of commercial and sport hunting and trapping. Regan writes, "The fundamental wrong is the system that allows us to view animals as our ...
The tide could be turning against animal rights activists who demonstrate on campuses around the nation. Today marks the launch of Speaking of Research (SR), a student outreach organization, which aims to rally students and faculty in support of lifesaving medical research using animals.. Speaking of Research seeks to challenge animal rights dominance of the issue by participating in talks and debates on campuses across the country in the coming months. The groups website, http://www.speakingofresearch.org, provides students with the information and encouragement to enable them to speak out on the issue.. Animal rights activism is now at an all time high in the United States. Several university researchers have recently had their homes attacked by protesters while other scientists and their families have been threatened by mail, email and phone.. Tom Holder, founder of Speaking of Research, said: Students played a major part in changing public attitudes toward animal research in the UK, and we ...

Animal welfare groups in Britain say they are outraged by a school fundraising contest that involves placing ferrets down the trousers of competitors.
A slaughterhouse or abattoir /ˈæbətwɑːr/ ( listen) is a facility where animals are slaughtered for consumption as food. Slaughterhouses supply meat which then becomes the responsibility of the packaging department. Slaughterhouses that process meat not intended for human consumption are sometimes referred to as knackers yards or knackeries, used for animals that are not fit for consumption or can no longer work on a farm such as work horses that can no longer work. Slaughtering animals on a large scale poses significant logistical problems, animal welfare problems, public health requirements, and environmental problems. Due to public aversion in many cultures, determining where to build slaughterhouses is also troubling. Animal welfare and animal rights groups frequently raise concerns about the methods of transport, preparation, herding, and killing within some slaughterhouses under the example of animal rights activists such as Howard Lyman and Ric OBarry. Until modern times, the ...
Steven Wise apparently has a new book out, Though the Heavens May Fall. The book is ostensibly about an 18th century British court case that helped turn the tide against slavery in that country, and of course you can probably imagine the sort of lesson that Wise wants us to take from that (if you cant, its that such a similar case could turn the tide toward animal rights).. As animal rights activists go, Wise is relatively harmless. He has a complex model - widely criticized by other activists - that would grant certain species legal rights based upon how likely they are to have the sort of sense of self that human beings have. Its overly complex and unworkable in this writers opinion, but at least Wise doesnt run around naked or make statements that killing those he disagrees with is not such a bad idea.. But he also used an argument that is simply stupid, unconvincing, and a bit out-of-character given Wises legalists arguments. He gave a speech at the University of Michigan in February in ...
What is worse? Eight little swans supposedly chasing away game species or industrial sprawl eating away habitat? Vermonts wildlife management agency has done nothing about development in the very same area. A wonderful article appeared in the Vermont Times, on July 30, 1997 by reporter Gretchen Fryling. It was about the game agencies obsession to manipulate animal populations. Mute swans are not considered native wildlife although theyve been here over 100 years. They seem to have no definition or protection at all under any law. Normally, an animal that successfully establishes itself in an area is considered naturalized. That means that, even though the species did not evolve in that territory, it has now found its niche and is successful in maintaining its population in the region. Naturalized and native species are normally considered on the same ecological footing. If we were to remove all naturalized plant and animal species from the continent, there would be very little flora ...
Ms. Chaitowitzs story is very sad. I do not know the presentation of her breast cancer; so I do not know how much additional benefit she would have derived from her chemotherapy in terms of increasing her odds of survival, had she not suffered her complication; it could vary from a few percent absolute benefit to much more. However, in general, the benefits of chemotherapy outweigh the risks, even in early stage breast cancer, where the benefits are relatively small on an absolute scale. Unfortunately, individual patients are not statistics. For example, when I counsel patients on the risk of a wound infection after surgery, I will often say something like, "The risk is around 2%, but if it happens to you its 100%, and you wont be reassured that you are in a small minority of patients." The same applies to Ms. Chaitowitzs case, but even more dramatically. Myelodysplastic syndrome is a known, albeit uncommon, complication of chemotherapy and radiation (around 0.3-0.7% risk in most recent ...

Outside of "Parasite," the major categories went largely as expected. Renee Zellweger won best actress for her portrayal of Judy Garland in "Judy," and Joaquin Phoenix won best actor for "Joker.". The best supporting actor and actress also went to frontrunners Brad Pitt for "Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood," while Laura Dern took best supporting actress for "Marriage Story.". Phoenix, who won his first-ever Oscar for his work as the unstable Arthur Fleck on his way to becoming Joker, gave perhaps the most impassioned speech of the night, talking at length about his belief and hope that people everywhere can come together for common cause.. "I see commonality whether were talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or animal rights," said Phoenix, who is well-known as an animal rights activist and vegan.

Compassion for animals is one of the highest human virtues. It happens only through the dedication of individuals. Compassion and government are mutually exclusive concepts. The HSUS endorsement of Obama is but the tip of the iceberg. Consider that his primary political mentor, Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, has been the major proponent of anti-dog-owner animal rights legislation in Congress. Durbin is the sponsor of the current "PUPS" legislation that would extend the heavy arm of federal bureaucracy into most kennels in America, and also was the author of the failed amendment to the Pet Animal Welfare Act that was attached to the 2008 Farm Bill. Obamas main allies in Congress read like a "Whos Who" of radical animal rights activism: defeated Sen. Rick Santorum (author of the failed PAWS legislation three years ago), Sen. Diane Feinstein, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Sen. Ted Kennedy and several others. Obamas running mate, Sen. Joe Biden,consistently gets 100% HSUS ratings. The Obama ticket is an ...

Hughes writes that I have "asserted that the project was a form of eugenics and cultural imperialism." The first thing I would want to be very clear about is that there is no such project in existence and so I dont think it IS anything at all, strictly speaking. The only actually-existing Project to which Hughes essay refers here is The Great Ape Project, and I happen to so approve of the Great Ape Project that readers of Amor Mundi will find a link to it in my blogroll, indeed will find that it is something to which I have drawn the attention of my students in many courses that touch on questions of nonhuman animal rights or environmental justice. That should come as no surprise to anybody who knows that I have been an ethical vegetarian for nearly twenty years, have written and taught extensively on animal rights questions, and so on. I wouldnt want anybody mistakenly to think I disdain the actually-existing and actually-important work of the Great Ape Project as a "form of eugenics and ...

If pressed, Ill fully admit that Id be more upset over the killing of a gorilla or a dolphin or a dog vs a chicken or a fish or a mouse. A lot of that has to do with what their perceived behavior indicates about their awareness. I mentioned "experiencing" pain. Id like put the emphasis on experiencing. I dont think consciousness/awareness is an all or nothing thing, its most likely a sliding scale of which we seem to be at the top of right now. Not only is there the experience of feeling pain for us, but there is the awareness and knowledge of what is going on. I touched on this above, but we just dont know enough about what brings about consciousness to make any definitive determinations as to whether other animals experience "qualia", and using behavior is a poor but currently necessary substitute. Neuroscience can hopefully answer some of these questions for us. ...
I beg you to notice the unbearable dimension of sorrow that David Cameron is attempting to inflict upon British wildlife/freelife (an animal is not wild simply because it is uncaged.) If you can find the time, would you please write to the MP of your choice - if you can think of one that you half-trust - at The House of Commons, St Margarets Street, London SW1P, urging them to vote against the repeal. It is not the hunt saboteurs who menace social order, but the Hunters themselves, and the moral climate of 2010 seeping into 2011 surely tells all intelligent people that the key to the extent of any persons humanity is in their relationship to - and protection of - animals. Politicians only care about the public as electorate, and once the victory vote has been seized there is no place for debate between The Prime Minister and the people who elected him. (I cannot use the him/her term in relation to a Prime Minister because, as we all know, Margaret Thatcher has ensured that a female Prime ...
While the soup remains a popular delicacy at weddings, the campaigns of groups like WWF Hong Kong seem to be working.. Last year the Chinese government announced to plans to stop serving shark fin soup at official ceremonies, while earlier this summer various businesses like HSBC and Shangri-La Hotels made a pledge to forbid it at events in China and Korean Air Lines swore off transporting shark parts for consumption. Now the Hong Kong region, also known as the worlds capital of shark fin imports, will ban the dish at all official events and request that government employees refrain from eating it anywhere at any time.. Some say this is all a PR stunt by Hong Kong apparatchiks to convince people that civil servants dont live extravagant lifestyles fueled by the perks of working within the Communist party. Others say its just another nail in the industrys coffin after millions boycotted the soup inspired, at least in part, by these advocacy groups educational campaigns.. While we admire the ...

Celebrated on the fourth Sunday of January, Goat throwing (in Spanish: Lanzamiento de cabra desde campanario or Salto de la cabra) was a festival in Manganeses de la Polvorosa, province of Zamora, Spain where a group of young men threw a live goat from the top of a church based on local legend. A crowd below would then catch the falling goat with a canvas sheet. Animal rights groups demanded the end of this festival several times, until the practice was banned in 2000. The legend states that a goat, which miraculously fed the poor with its milk, fell out of the tower, but landed safely. [1] A toy plush goat was thrown in the 2014 celebration.

A technique known as intein-mediated ligation (Iwai and Pluckthun 1999) allows for the in vitro cyclization of proteins. In this method the protein to be cyclized is fused at its C-terminus to a disabled Saccharomyces cerevisiae VMA intein (Hirata et al. 1990 Kane et al. 1990), which is itself fused at its C-terminus to a chitin-binding domain (CBD Chong et al. 1997).

So, is all of this philosophizing about the nature of value just another example of debating the relationships between dancing angels and heads of pins? Or can it have real-world significance?. I want to expand on a response that I wrote to yesterdays post about the nature of intrinsic value mostly because of its real-world implications. I would argue that the doctrine of intrinsic value, like the doctrine of God-given value, is not only mistaken. It is a pernicious doctrine used to seduce good people into doing bad things.. Intrinsic vs Objective Value. What I am going to be calling intrinsic value is what others (confusingly) call objective value. Typically, when I am asked whether I think that values are objective, I think that the questioner is actually asking me if values are intrinsic.. Do I think that intrinsic values exist? The answer is, "No.". Do I think that objective values exist? The answer is, "Yes, but they exist as relationships between states of affairs and desires, not as ...

An undercover animal rights investigator who has secretly captured animal abuse on farms and slaughterhouses for the past 11 years explains how his activism faces legal threat. AARON MATÉ: In recent years, activists and investigators have gone undercover to reveal shocking cases of animal cruelty at some of the nations largest plants and farms. In many cases, they have made secret videos of the abuses, leading to prosecutions, closures, recalls and vows from the offenders to change their practices.

Aguilar. Those "tough" measures had no impact on the mall shooter, Darion Marcus Aguilar, who shot and killed two people and himself at a clothing store at the shopping mall in Columbia, Maryland.. It is not known at this time if the shooter was on drugs. Reports indicate he expressed "general unhappiness with his life," an indication of depression, perhaps exacerbated by or brought on by drugs. He carried out the murders with a 12-gauge shotgun, had a large amount of ammunition and two homemade explosive devices inside a backpack.. Numerous reports indicate the killer was an animal rights activist. Ellis Cropper, a man who identified himself as a spokesman for the Aguilar family, told The New York Times that the murderer "stopped eating meat after watching a documentary on animal cruelty.". The Baltimore Sun added some more detail, quoting Cropper as saying, "He became a vegan last year or the year before after he saw a documentary on PBS and he saw how animals were slaughtered.". So he opposed ...
Then what are we then? Humans belong to the kingdom animalia. That is what science says on the matter and medical science clearly says the unborn are members of the human species. That doesnt mean though, they deserve rights of any sort. This is the problem with most of the pro life movement who state the science but then dont state why they should be persons (entities with a moral right to life) instead, they completely skip that and go straight to moral claims and get snotty saying thats not scientific even though whatever the pro choicer could be using to grant a right to life to lets say off of theory of mind. That can indeed be objectively measured through science so pro lifers cant say thats not scientific because it is indeed. When challenged for example on why can we kill the pig for food but not the average ordinary human? They cant say because it is a human because that claim doesnt really specify why we cant kill this entity for food. A animal rights activist ...
Fast-forward to the early 20th century, when scientists first discovered the role hormones played in female reproduction, they identified a specific hormone found only in pregnant woman, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). In the 1920s and 30s, to recognize the presence of hCG, which indicated pregnancy early on, doctors injected urine into an immature mouse, rat, frog, or even a rabbit. If a woman were pregnant, the test subject would go into heat despite its immaturity. To announce their status, women euphemized, "The mouse died" or "I killed the Easter bunny," because killing and dissecting the lab animal confirmed the results. A common misconception arose that if the animal died after injection, it pointed to a positive pregnancy test. But in actuality, all tested specimens were disposed of, much to the chagrin of animal rights activists. This test was known as the A-Z test, named after the founding scientists, Selmar Ascheim and Bernhard Zondek ...

Why animal rights?. People should treat all animals as well as they treat their pets, say some ALF members. They dont see much difference between a pig and a dog. That is an emotional response that cant be trusted, some respond, and yet they are emotionally attached to their stuffed animals and pet rocks.. The few aside, many people believe that animal activists simply take animals too seriously. They lack a sense of proportion.. We value life over property, say some ALF members. If you could save a life by destroying non-living, physical property, wouldnt you? The defense of innocent life, whether by legal means or not, is not only the right of every conscious and just person, but their responsibility. The ALF must break the law in order to be effective in what they do. But, if you approached a lake and saw a person drowning, would a no swimming sign keep you from saving that persons life? No.. A common argument is that the ALF has no right to destroy anothers property. History ...
If produced on a large scale, scientists say it could ease deforestation and pressure on food and water supplies, ensure more people are eating well and abate the concerns of animal rights activists everywhere.. They added that cultured meat would only require about one percent of the land space needed for cattle and about four percent of the water. Currently, meat production is the number one source of human-generated greenhouse gas emissions, pumping out more pollutants each year than all other sources combined.. Widespread consumption of artificial meat would also cut down on the use of fossil fuels for transportation and refrigeration, if grown and distributed locally.. The process of growing muscle cells, which depends on Cyanobacteria hydrolysate as an energy source, was described in detail by The Scientific American in its June 2011 issue. ...
For a long time, animal rights activists have tried to do away with the differences that separate humans and animals. In 2007 they made headlines in Austria after attempting to secure juridical rights for a chimpanzee.

In June 2007, however, chimpanzees got limited human rights in Spain. ...

Though this is a recent development, made just three or four days ago, there has been a lot of hush over what some, including myself, might say is a drastic and almost ludicrous viewpoint. Where the media coverage on this statement is, I do not know, but CNN spokesperson and known animal rights activist, Daisy Carrington, produced a two-page column yesterday, in detail expressing the concern (or lack thereof, really) for people not addressing this as a serious issue. She claims that real actions need to be made in clothing animals in the future before letting pictures of them loose onto print. Apparently, she feels that "not only are Americans twice as likely to pay attention to non-domesticated animals who are clothed by Photoshop and other means, but they are four times as likely to actually care about the protection of endangered species if they see that animals, domesticated or otherwise, are just like us ...

Today, the proposition that animals share some of the same feelings as man -- actually experiencing pain, grief, and joy -- is winning more advocates. And animal rights activists point to that concept as a concrete reason to end mans exploitation of animals. The reformers are getting help from biologist Marc Bekoff, of the University of Colorado, who has compiled a new book, The Smile of the Dolphin, (Discovery Books/Random House, $35) in which dozens of animal researchers explain why they believe animals have emotions ...

A CCTV spokeswoman said he would not perform on the show, declining to give further details..

On Monday night The Guggenheim announced it will be pulling three artworks from its upcoming exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theatre of the World. The news was announced after the pieces came under fire last week when activists labeled them as "instances of unmistakable cruelty against animals in the the name of art." This statement was delivered via a petition on change.org which currently has the support of nearly 750,000 people.. The artworks concerned, previewed on The New York Times, featured two videos of live animals and a sculpture that included live insects and lizards. In one of the videos, artists Peng Yu and Sun Yuan tether four pairs of American pit bulls to eight wooden treadmills for a live exhibit. The dogs are riled up and attempt to attack each other but are held back by harnesses causing them to grow increasingly weary. "Although these works have been exhibited in museums in Asia, Europe, and the United States, the Guggenheim regrets that explicit and repeated threats of ...
The ethical treatment of animals is one of serious academic interest today. Specifically, both the practice of animal experimentation and ethical concerns about it have a long history, going virtually back to the ancient Greek period and continuing to the present day. With new breakthroughs in science and technology, it is likely that this practice will be with us for a long time to come. Thus, this book provides an interdisciplinary approach to the topic by utilizing the insights of cognitive ethology, philosophy, science, and Christian theology in order to present a benign approach to the ethical treatment of experimental animals. The reality and existence of animal minds, animal pain, and animal suffering provide the foundation for animal rights, and subsequently, for more positive treatment. Concrete suggestions are offered with regard to more humane animal legislation, improved animal husbandry conditions, as well as concrete guidelines that offset the burdens to animals against the benefits to

Human Rights Watch has learnt with dismay of the arrest of Isaac Osuoka, an activist with the Nigerian human and environmental rights organization, Environmental Rights Action.. Mr. Osuoka was arrested at a roadbloack in Lagos by a combined team of soldiers and police on May 26, 1998, together with a visiting environmentalist from the Netherlands, Aart van den Hoek. Both were attending the second biannual conference of the African Forest Action Network and the car they were in contained leaflets relating to human rights abuses in the Niger Delta. Mr. van den Hoek was released the next morning, May 27, after being held overnight in police cells. "This is just the latest in a recent series of arrests, in which human rights activists, journalists and opposition politicians have been rounded up," said Peter Takirambudde, executive director of the Africa division of Human Rights Watch. "The Nigerian military government, which depends on oil for its life blood, has once again demonstrated its ...
Corporate Ethics International and other activist groups involved in the Rethink Alberta campaign today pulled several anti-oil, anti-Canada advertisements placed in U.S. markets. The ads were pulled because they contained inaccurate statements.. "Both the U.S. and Canada have advertising standards to protect the public from claims that are not truthful, fair and accurate," said Janet Annesley, CAPP Vice President of Communications. "We suggest to Corporate Ethics International the only ethical response is a full correction to their ads, website and statements to media.". Earlier this week Corporate Ethics International and several other activists launched Rethink Alberta, a billboard and internet campaign comparing the crude oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to Canadas oil sands.

Introduction. The ethical analysis of our moral obligations to animals, as well as practical decisions regarding many issues in veterinary medicine, both presuppose some account of "animal welfare" - that is, of what makes an animals life go well or poorly. Therefore, it is essential that we think critically about the concept of animal welfare. This paper briefly explores some philosophical issues in the definition and assessment of animal welfare.. Two Different Senses of "Animal Welfare". The first thing to clarify is the way in which Im using the term "animal welfare." In both moral philosophy and ordinary language (as concerns humans), the term "welfare" is roughly synonymous with "wellbeing." To say that an individual "has a welfare" is to say that her life can go better or worse from her perspective, and to talk about her welfare is to talk about her interests - what are the things that make her life go better or worse for her? How should we conceptualize her wellbeing in the abstract? ...
