Europeans for Medical Progress wins university debate with Pro-Test

Science director of EMP, Dr Jarrod Bailey debated Kristina Cook of Pro-Test in front of an audience of over 100 people at Sheffield University Debating Society on May 17th. Dr Bailey presented overwhelming evidence of harm resulting from animal experimentation, as well as outlining the superior methods available today. Just as in a debate between Dr Bailey and Iain Simpson in the House of Commons on March 15th, Pro-Test provided no evidence to support their claims that animal experiments are crucial to medical progress, preferring to continue their attempts to discredit those who disagree with them. However, the audience was not convinced and the motion was carried that: “This house believes that animal testing is detrimental to human health and should be abolished.”
