Animal Rights Debate in the News

Representatives of Michigan State University's Students Promoting Animal Rights attempted to arrange for a forum on campus that would have put Dr. Jeff Armstrong, dean of the MSU College of Agriculture & Natural Resources, and Bruce Friedrich, vice president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in a discussion on the issue of animal rights. Armstrong, who also serves as chairman of the United Egg Producers Scientific Advisory Committee for Animal Welfare and as an adviser to McDonald's on animal welfare issues, refused the debate on the basis it would not be objective and science based.

The result was an interesting exchange of positions in The State News: Animal activists encourage discussion (Bruce Friedrich's opinion) and Civil discourse must be based in science (Jeffrey Armstrong's opinion).
