Terrible news out of Italy.

Years of research, designed to understand and develop therapies/cures for autism and other mental disorders, has been ruined because animal-rights activists sacked research facilities at the University of Milan.

I always find it remarkable that these activists think that they know more about research, or animal ethics, then the literally hundreds of individuals involved in designing, approving, executing and overseeing the research activities that involve animal models.

It’s a fantastic example of how central planning can fail spectacularly.
