Ethical Dilemma of Research With Animals

HUMANE TALK (03-20-2017) #8067: John Gluck talks about the ethical dilemma of research with animals and his book VORACIOUS SCIENCE & VULNERABLE ANIMALS: A PRIMATE SCIENTIST’S ETHICAL JOURNEY. He describes what has been done to monkeys in the name of science and how the moral ground shifted beneath his own feet during his early scientific career, propelling him to advocate on behalf of the subjects of these research studies which found themselves in a predicament for a lifetime.
