“Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is:  “Because the animals are like us.”  Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is:  “Because the animals are not like us.”  Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction.”   – Charles R. Magel
