Excerpt from Transactions of the Section on Pathology and Physiology of the American Medical Association at the Annual Session, 1903 In several states during the past year there has been vigorous agitation for legislative restriction of the use of animals for medical research. This agitation is not new. For many years in Massachusetts petitioners have appealed for laws controlling laboratory methods, and previous attempts to secure such laws have been made also in Illinois, Pennsylvania and New York. In England, where a restrictive act has been enforced since 1876, still more drastic law is now demanded. To those who are active in promoting medical science, the experience of England is particularly instructive, because the legislation asked for in this country is largely based on the English act of 1876. This act is pointed to as a model. But the present appeal in England for more drastic law indicates that even were the English act transferred to our statutes, it would be merely initial and temporary, and that it would not be permanently satisfactory to many of the agitators. Indeed, both individuals and societies hostile to the laboratories have clearly stated that what they desire is total abolition of animal experiments, and that restrictive legislation is the first step to that end. The prospect, therefore, is toward an indefinitely extended struggle for the legislative control of the methods of medical research.
