Animal Research DebateOctober 17, 2013
On Monday, I moderated a public debate at James Madison University. The debate was part of the British debate series called The Big Animal Research Debate, with JMU hosting the only debate outside the United Kingdom. The resolution for the debate was "This House would ban all forms of animal research." The debate received news coverage from WHSV (local ABC affiliate) and The Breeze (JMU's student newspaper). It was good to see a crowd of more than 150 students and faculty attend and join in the dialogue after the debaters made their arguments.
