Animals Have Greater Protections Than Humans

Peyser laments the uneven penalties for abusing humans compared with animals. Animal rights lobbyists influenced the way that criminal statutes were written. They had the same effect on experimentation laws. Under state and US laws there are fines and prison penalties for using animals in experiments contrary to statute. But there are no penalties for using humans without consent under US law. Few states have laws regulating human experiments.
