Good to see that not all scientists are dyed in the wool abusers of animals!

God bless Dr. Lawrence Hansen. "I abhor vivisection. It should at least be curbed. Better it should be abolished. I know of no achievement through vivisection, no scientific discovery that could not have been obtained without such barbarism and cruelty. The whole thing is evil."
- Dr. Charles Mayo, founder of Mayo Clinic.
There is so much suffering involved in mostly pointless animal "experiments" and research. If more respected doctors spoke out against it, we might actually get somewhere in our fight to stop it. Thank you Nancy.

It is fantastic to see that this doctor is brave enough to stand up for what he believes in and against his peers! Well done to him! Vivisection is disgusting, useless and unnecessary and should be abolished.
