Lord Hugh Dowding
British Air Chief Marshal and anti-vivisectionist, founder of The Lord Dowding Fund for Humane Research
(1882-1990)

I firmly believe that painful experiments on animals are morally wrong, and that it is basically immoral to do eveil in order that good may come even if it were proved that mankin benefits from the suffering inflicted on animals. I further believe that, in the vast majority of cases, mankind does not so benefit, and the results of vivisection are, in fact, misleading and harmful.
- Part of a speech delivered to the House of Lords in 1957
