Animal Experiments

From your article on the Vatican's treatment of offenders (May 8), I learned of the 2002 global  convention banning torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment and punishment.

If this ruling were to be properly applied to the treatment of animals also, I feel humanity could breathe a little easier,  the use of non-animal methods of experimentation would of necessity be intensified, and we humans would be more encouraged to concentrate on defining causes and prevention of our various ailments, rather than on "cures" suggested by experiments using animals.
