Argument: Killing animals undermines the dignity of life

Issue Report: Animal testing


Dr. Jon Evans, England – “To inflict cruelties on defenceless creatures, or condone such acts, is to abuse one of the cardinal tenets of a civilised society – reverence for life.”[1]

Dr. Albert Schweitzer, Alsatian Theologian, Musician, and Medical Missionary – “A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as well as that of his fellowman, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help.”[2]

Julia Allen Field (1937- ) – “We cannot glimpse the essential life of a caged animal, only the shadow of its former beauty.”[3]
