Caption

Vivisection satire. Centrefold artwork for the satirical US magazine 'Puck', showing two researchers, with scalpel, anaesthesia mask, and microscope, about to operate on a live rabbit. At left, a group of men and women are attempting to halt the operation. At right, the ghosts of victims of illnesses are encouraging them to continue. The caption at bottom says: 'The Sentimentalists: For Mercy's Sake, Stop!' and 'The Sufferers: For Humanity's Sake, Go On!'. Vivisection is the practice of dissecting live animals in order to advance physiological and medical understanding. Artwork by Will Crawford (1869-1944). Published 22 February 1911.
