Vote Recommendation: For
This proposal serves as a well-written answer to the current dearth of animal rights legislation in the World Assembly. The legislation effectively restricts excessively cruel animal testing, while allowing member nations enough flexibility to engage in testing when it is justified. Additionally, several key clauses ensure that animals are humanely treated both before and after testing, along with prohibiting experimentation on species at risk of extinction unless it will aid in conservation efforts. The establishment of an Animal Experimentation Board is handled well, and allows member nations to receive the necessary funding to comply with the act's provisions.
For these reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends voting For the resolution, "Ethical Treatment of Animals in Research".
