Dr. Bates explores the relationship of the medical profession and the anti-vivisection movement in nineteenth-century Britain. Almost overlooked in the present, there was a nineteenth-century view by many that vivisection was a moral failing on the part of the experimenter. By examining the creation of the National Anti-Vivisection Hospital and the Research Defense Society, he questions why despite the level of popular support for the anti-vivisectionists, they made little progress in curbing experiments on animals. Looking at these events provides insight into the continuing efforts to stop animal experimentation today.
