AbstractOn the first day of class, a professor of psychology Dr. John Smith, lectures his students on the benefits of animal testing, pointing out how animal research has helped advance the study of psychology and of medicine. He supports this with a PowerPoint of how animal testing benefits society, and warns students that they should not rail against animal testing unless they avoid all sorts of products, particularity cosmetics, leather, and consumption of meat. Some students find Professor Smith's lecture to improperly advocate personal beliefs.
