Do Animals Belong in the Lab?
To the Editor:
The animal rights movement is often mischaracterized as a fringe movement, populated only by those who speak through unsigned threats or property damage and violence (front page, July 23). But most animal-rights supporters seek redress within the law and mainstream political channels.
We are lawyers and doctors, students and parents, former cattle ranchers and even a metal worker from the Bronx. To focus on the actions of radicals within any movement is to serve its opposing interests. – KATHLEEN EDDY
