Ethics in Research with Animals
In one paragraph, summarize the research reported in the paper you selected. This information is provided in the methods section of the paper. In your paragraph answer, as best you can, the following questions: What kinds of animals were used? How many? Were the animals used as model organisms? (think physiology and vivisection) Or as a kind of technology or methodological tool? (think bacteriology, inoculation, and serial passage of a virus through generations of animals). Question 2 Select either an “animal rights” (think Tom Regan and Deontologists) an “animal welfare” (think Peter Singer and Utilitarians). From the perspective you’ve selected, is research described in the paper you selected justifiable?
