“The animal rights movement largely objects to the use of animals in research. The lack of meaningful communication between those who support or oppose such use has led to polarized opinions and has inhibited finding common ground for advancing animal welfare. Nevertheless, publicity from animal rights activities has provided an impetus for positive animal welfare changes, such as ways to reduce, refine, and replace laboratory animals.”
