Scholars Demand Full Disclosure of Animal Testing

Journal of Animal Ethics editors want the public to know the truth about animal testing.

A group of editors from the Journal of Animal Ethics were recently published by the University of Illinois Press expressing their hope for the public to have full disclosure as to what sort of testing occurs during drug development. The editors assert that consumers should be aware of any and all suffering of animals that took place in order to create prescription drugs. “Let the facts and the history be known. Let us not shirk the details. Anything less may serve particular interests but is less than the full disclosure we have a right to expect,” the JAE states in the report. The journal’s primary purpose is to bring more attention to the debate regarding the ethical status of animals.
