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
"I agree that for the benefit of medical science, vivisection or animal experimentation has to be stopped. There are lots of reasons for that. The most important is that it's simply misleading, and both the past and the present testify to that."
