Animal rights leaflets for schools

16/07/2009 Joanna
A range of leaflets discussing animal experimentation has been designed for school staff to use in A-level classes.

The Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments (Frame) has produced the leaflets focusing on issues including animal testing for medical research.

They hope that the material will form the basis for science lessons and discussions.

A spokesperson for Frame said: "The leaflets are all science-based and aim to offer the middle ground in what is often a polarised dispute about the need to test medicines and the arguments for and against using animals for the purpose.

"They provide a balanced view, backed by scientific evidence," they added.

Frame ultimately advocates the elimination of any laboratory research involving animals.

However, they concede that the immediate abolition of using animals for medical research is impossible.

The group has set up an online-learning resource on their website to provide teaching staff and students with information on different areas of animal experimentation.
