Antivivisection speakers to appear before Scottish Parliament



Scotland for Animals have arranged for two of the worlds leading experts on non-animal research to speak at the Scottish Parliament next month.


Dr Ray Greek, President of Americans for Medical Advancement and consultant Dr Andre Menache will be joining the animal charity in asking MSP's and the Scottish Government to take urgent action to end the use of animals in experiments.


Scotland for Animals spokesman John Patrick: "Our country has a disproportionately high number of animals used in experiments when compared to the UK total. We requested data from the Home Office on animal experiments in Scotland and the figures are grim."


Dr Ray Greek: "It's time for 20th century animal researchers to catch up with 21st century science, it's actually not a difficult choice."

John Patrick: "it is particularly timely that we should secure this information before this meeting. They show that almost half a million animals are dying in Scotland's labs every year and over 65% of these are experimented on without any form anaesthetic"
