Anti-vivisectionist caricature of a scientist in an animal laboratory, holding a scalpel & syringes & with blood on his hands. Environmental politics includes opposition to vivisection (experiments on live animals). In the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, animal experimentation is conducted on the grounds that it may result in discoveries important to medical science. Anti-vivisection groups argue that it is immoral to inflict pain on helpless creatures. They argue that the beauty industry furthers its aims by making animals suffer in research laboratories; and that scientific results achieved in animal experiments do not always relate to humans.
