(Colombia) Colombia considers ban on most research and education using live animals – Nature (Amanda Heidt | September 2023)
Some may regard this move as problematic and making safe health treatments harder. Others may think this is a logical next step given the general public’s interest/concern about animals in scientific work. But with this move, Colombia is considering a step not otherwise seen globally. This debate and the movements with the bills are stoking contention between the parties. The rest of the world can only watch and wonder if something similar might be on the cards for their jurisdiction.
