Vivisection


Vivisection, viv'i-sek'shan, n. [< L. vivus, alive, and sectio, sectionis, a cutting.] The dissection of, or otherwise experimenting on, a living animal, esp. for the purpose of ascertaining or demonstrating some fact in physiology or pathology. -Websters Dictionary

"My own conviction is that the study of human physiology by way of experiments on animals is the most grotesque and fantastic error ever committed in the whole range of human intellectual activity."

Dr. G.F. Walker, Medical World, Dec. 8, 1933, p.365



"The case against vivisection is the same as that against war and all other forms of cruelty - that violence does not produce long-term solutions."

Jon Wynne-Tyson (1924- )
