The incorporal one gets it in one

Fine arguement in favour of limited vivesection from Cranmer,
"Cranmer likes cute, little furry things, and intriguing, intelligent, hairy things. He is not so keen on scaly, slimy, slippery things, so he eats them with an unfettered conscience. And chickens are stupid, so he eats those also. He is mainly against vivisection, unless such research is deemed to be absolutely necessary for the benefit of humankind, not least because man is made in the image of God, and he does not expect to be standing before the majestic seat of the ineffable gerbil deity on Judgement Day".

He goes on to attack the REACH Directive pretty effectively too.
