Historical Perspective: U.S. Office of Technology Assessment Report: Alternatives to Animal Use in Research, Testing, and Education (February 1986)

"Most countries examined for this assessment have laws far more protective of experimental animals than those in the United States.  Despite these protections, animal welfare advocates have been applying considerable pressure for even stronger laws, and many countries, including Australia, Switzerland, West Germany, and the United Kingdom, are considering major changes." p. 377
