AAAS Board Deplores Intimidation of Scientists Who Use Animals in Research

Responding to "repeated attacks" by animal rights extremists, the AAAS Board of Directors has issued a new statement in defense of scientists' right to responsibly use animals in research, testing, and education."The use of animals in research continues to make critical contributions to understanding basic life processes and to the treatment of human disease," the statement says. "...AAAS recognizes and supports the right of all citizens to protest and dissent from policies with which they disagree. On the other hand, unlawful and dangerous actions should not be tolerated."
