Pro-Test Celebrates Science and Battles Extremism

Peter Hollins, Chief Executive of British heart Foundation and Chair of the Coalition for Medical Progress, lends his support to the Pro-test march today. He said;
"Medical research underpins advances that help to improve and save peoples lives. The Coalition for Medical Progress is working alongside organisations and people who all believe we need to work together to foster an environment in which our scientists can continue their life saving work."

Hundreds of Pro-Testers marched through the streets of Oxford in support of lifesaving animal research, and to stand against animal rights extremism that has plagued the building of the new Oxford Biomedical Facility.

The Pro-Test march was conducted peacefully, as protesters gathered to hear speeches promoting medical progress through animal testing. Speakers included MP Evan Harris, Prof. Robin Lovell-Badge, Prof. Tipu Aziz and Prof. John Stein and were all met with rapturous applause.

Oxford University:
“Oxford is a world leader in non-animal research techniques such as computer modelling, imaging and epidemiological studies. However, there is overwhelming scientific consensus worldwide that some research using animals is still essential for medical progress. We remain, as ever, firmly committed to the completion of a new facility to re-house animals used in potentially life-saving research. The state-of-the-art facilities in the building will support animal welfare, and in turn support good science.”

The Government Science Minister:
“As Minister for Science I fully support the objectives of Pro-Test, and welcome the message you send to Britain’s scientists about the necessity of research to medical science, to encourage them to speak out about their work and be proud of the contributions they make.
The UK is a world leader in medical advances and the Government is proud of the pioneering work of our scientists and researchers; the use of animals is essential to the success of this vital work."
