Surveys in Britain show that students have become less supportive of free speech since 2016. But surveys in America show no trend over the same time period. Why the difference between the two countries?

A study in NEJM makes the false claim that infants are at "high risk" from COVID-19 to justify vaccinating pregnant women. This blatant falsehood in a leading journal undermines trust in science and medicine.

Animal experiments end at Ormond college Kilkenny

category kilkenny | animal rights | news report author Thursday March 12, 2009 14:13author by Bernie Wright - . Alliance for Animal Rights.(AFAR)author email berniew at esatclear dot ieauthor address AFAR. PO Box 4734. Dublin.1 Report this post to the editors

College praised for compassionate move.

The Alliance for Animal Rights who are totally opposed to the use of animals are glad to hear of a welcome development in Ormonde College, kilkenny.We hope the use of audio-visual approaches as opposed to animal experiments at Ormond college will spread within the research community.

The Kilkenny educational facility has come up with a novel and ethical way of providing students with all they need to know about the physical make up of animals, without hurting them.

Biology experiments, including the dissection of frogs and other little creatures have ceased at Kil-kenny's Ormonde College of Further Education thanks to the use of computer-based simulations and three-dimensional models, pioneered by Patrizia Setola, co-ordinator of the Animal Care course at the College.

"Too often our use of animals, particularly for dissection in scientific research reinforces a simplistic view that any manipulation of animals constitutes science," she said.

Because animal experimentation involves the incarceration of animals causing intense psychological distress, this will save lives-AFAR spokesperson. Also animals are often poisoned, mutilated, given diseases and killed. It is arguably the most severe form of systematic violence in the modern world.
Other terms for animal experimentation include 'vivisection', 'animal testing', and 'animal research'. Thanks to advancements in modern technology, there are now safe and reliable methods of testing products that save animal lives while assuring the safety and well-being of the public.

Proponents of non-animal testing methods in the scientific community have shown that these methods are often more reliable, quicker and cost-effective.

Examples of these non-animal methods range from computer and mathematical models to the use of human volunteers. In vitro tests include ones that use cell or tissue cultures, such as artificial test skin derived from human foreskin. Chemical tests include the Neutral Red Bioassay that uses a neutral red, water-soluble dye that is added to normal skin cells in a tissue culture plate, and a computer measurement of the level of uptake of the dye by the cells is used to indicate the relative toxicity.

This is a fantastic development which shows there are alternatives to the use of animals. I hope this move will inspire other institutions to spare innocent animals and move towards modern, humane methods instead.

Well done to Ormonde College. As a science teacher at post primary level I welcome this development. Does anyone know where I can get more information about the techniques being used by the College?
