Questions about Animal Rights
A classic animal rights film that raises important questions about the use of animals in laboratories.
TOOLS FOR RESEARCH erases our comfortable assumptions about the importance of animal research, and carefully documents answers to the questions we should ask about the use of animals in laboratories. How many animals are used each year? Are hey protected by law? Aren't animals used only in research to save human lives? Is it necessary to use animals? Who profits?

"If animals are to be protected from abuse it is desperately important that all those concerned should know the real facts. I would urge both laymen and scientists, those for such experimentation as well as those against, to see this film."
Dr. Jane Goodall
