MONTPELIER, Vt. — Vermont's governor signed a new law Thursday that could make the state the first to require labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms — and also could make it the first to
"Today, we are the first state in America that says simply, 'Vermonters have spoken loud and clear: We want to know what's in our food,' " Gov. Peter Shumlin said, comparing the issue to other state laws that were first in the nation, banning slavery and allowing same-sex marriage. "We are pro-choice. We are pro-information."

"These are fundamental questions we have to ask of society," says Lisa Archer of Friends of the Earth, an advocacy group that has lobbied retailers not to sell the modified salmon and has urged consumers not to eat it. "Where is all of this going to end up? Where do we draw the line? Let's look at the full implications and the full costs."
A large amount of animals exist to be used for testing and research purposes by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and other branches of the military and defense.
We absolutely want the military to receive the best training possible, and to conduct progressive research. There are plenty of acceptable and accurate human analog training methods to use, and new animal-less research methods that are more accurate are being worked on every day. We hope that the DoD and other branches of the military and defense can utilize these alternatives, rather than continue to use animals.
SAFE are delighted that Prime Minister John Key has ruled out the use of animals for testing controversial legal highs drugs.
Last year the proposed testing of psychoactive substances (legal highs or party pills) led to legislation which allowed cruel testing on animals such as dogs under law if no other alternative exists. SAFE, along with other animal groups campaigned for the last 18 months to stop the cruel tests.

Undoubtedly, human health has benefitted greatly from chimps’ past service to biomedical research. But, based on the solid base of research and expert guidance provided by Jane and a great many others, I’m confident that dramatically reducing chimps’ use in biomedical research is the scientifically sound and right thing to do.
CONCORD – Dissection is a science lesson that some students never forget, but for others, the prospect of prying open a frog or peering at the innards of a small mammal can be a source of angst.
Many schools provide alternatives for students who don’t want to participate in a dissection or vivisection, but the state Board of Education took steps this week to highlight best practices for allowing students to opt out.
