Discussing the Ethics of Animal Research
#8069: Is research on animals moral? A continuation of a conversation with John Gluck, a member of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University, who got a fellowship in bioethics in 1993. Animal research ethics are not typically studied — a desire for “proof” done by scientific standards. He and Tracie discuss the difference between trivial vs. important experiments, and how public opinion has driven concerns and change about how, when and if animal research should be conducted.
