Slaughter of the Innocent
Latest edition of Hans Ruesch's classic anti-vivisection book at a special price.
The 450 pages (including index) describe what vivisection is, provides a section of chilling examples of vivisection and another section on the intellectuality and mutual compassion shown by animals. Ruesch then presents a brief look at the history of medicine and how its progress has been hampered by vivisection. This is backed up by quotes and references from doctors and medical journals. Cancer, vaccines, surgery and pharmaceuticals are all dealt with, and the harmful effects for humans from animal experiments are highlighted.

Founded in 1978 by Bette Overell, NZAVS is New Zealand's serious scientific anti-vivisection organisation. We focus on immediate abolition of (on grounds of medical and scientific fraud) vivisection by exposing the harm to human health that comes from using results of experiments on animals.
