So this morning on my way to work, I switched on NPR and there was an interesting piece about animal rights activists who have been "aggressively targeting science faculty members [throughout the University of California system] who experiment on animals." The UCs are no asking for a court order to stop the protests and threats (one professor received a threat on his voicemail that a bomb had been placed in his car, another had her home flooded, etc).
So today's debate of the day...do animals have rights? To what extent? What about the researchers?
