Animal rights for human welfare
Robert Porzel

While animal rights are not contingent on their effect on human animals and ought to be considered an absolute right, there are numerous cases in which an implementation of animal rights would directly benefit us humans. Animal testing is such a case. In this talk, Robert Porzel will highlight where and how the continuation of animal testing in medical research and development is harmful to human beings and what scientific approaches could be pursued if animal testing was to be discontinued. Therefore, the implicit question will be raised whether and how animal rights activists should advocate these benefits to the public.
