Buenos días,

Por si os interesa, este es el link de la contestación de la Comisión Europea a una petición de PETA para acabar con la experimentación animal (https://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/document/PETI-CM-653736_EN.pdf). Clara en la confirmación de la actual necesidad de la misma. Por ejemplo, su segundo párrafo:

«Contrary to the petitioners’ assertion that animal research is of limited value, it is a fact that animal studies have contributed significantly to improved health and quality of life as well as to longer life expectancy. Effective treatments exist today for many infectious diseases, some forms of cancer, and several chronic diseases such as diabetes. These advancements would have been impossible without the insights gained through animal studies. Such studies are also required by Union legislation to authorise human clinical trials, and to protect health and the environment.»

Un saludo,
