One day the world will look upon research upon animals as it now looks upon research on human beings.
--Leonardo Da Vinci (Leonardo the artist created the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper.)

Atrocities are not less atrocities when they occur in laboratories and are called medical research.
--George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) He is the only person to have been awarded both a Nobel Prize (1925) and an Oscar (1938).

The medical argument for animal testing doesn’t stand up. Even if it did, I don’t think we should kill other species. We think we’re so much better; I’m not sure we are. I tell people, “We’ve beaten into submission every animal on the face of the Earth, so we are the clear winners of whatever battle is going on between the species. Couldn’t we be generous? I really do think it’s time to get nice. No need to keep beating up on them. I think we’ve got to show that we’re kind.
--Paul McCartney

Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is--whether its victim is human or animal--we cannot expect things to be much better in this world... We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in killing we set back the progress of humanity."
--Rachel Carson (Author of Silent Spring)

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated
