Some good news from the BBC:
"An online petition has been launched allowing the UK public to back medical research using animals.
The Coalition for Medical Progress, which includes drug companies and research agencies, started it at the suggestion of a member of the public.
It says the petition will give voice to the "silent majority" who accept the need for animal studies. "
