Your Call: Should animals be used for scientific testing?


On the next Your Call, We’ll have a debate about the ethics of animal experimentation. What are the strongest arguments for their value in research? Where have researchers gone over the line into unnecessary cruelty to their animal research subject?  Who should decide what’s the correct use of animals in medical and scientific research? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Robert Jones, assistant professor of Philosophy at California State University, Chico
