3 The use of animals for medical research is a highly emotional topic formany people. Animal-rights activistscondemn research on animals, claimingthat many medical experiments are notonly inhumane but actually unnecessary.Alternatives to animal experimentationexist, they argue, if only medicalresearchers were willing to make use ofthem. A physician and medical researcher,exciting
4 Ron Kline addresses the claims of the activists and, in the process, makes some compelling claims of his own.I am the enemy! One of those vilified, inhumane physician-scientists involved in animal research. How strange, for I have never thought of myself as an evil person. I became a pediatrician because of my love for children and my desire to keep them healthy. During medical school andforceful &convincingat the same time

More important, I also saw children, alive and healthy, thanks to advances in medical science such as infant respirators, powerful antibiotics, new surgical techniques and the entire field of organ transplantation.白血病早产外伤residencyThe period during which a physician receives specialized clinical training.Premature:Born after a gestation period of less than the normal time:早产的：在短于正常时间的妊娠期后出生的：Malignant adj.Threatening to life; virulent:致命的：威胁生命的；恶性的：a malignant disease.一种致命的疾病Tending to metastasize; cancerous.

6 have no particular interest or concern for, apathetic My desire to tip the scales in favor of the healthy, happy children drew me to medical research.My accusers claim that I impose torture on animals for the sole purpose of career advancement. My experiments supposedly have no relevance to medicine and are easily replaced by computer simulation. Meanwhile, an indifferent publicWho?the only onehave no particular interest or concern for, apatheticMilitary affairs, physics, aeronautics, hydraulics, even film-making business
7 barely watches, convinced that the issue has no significance, and publicity-conscious politicians increasingly give way to the demands of the activists.We in medical research have also been inexcusably indifferent. We have allowed the most extreme animal-rights protesters to seize the initiative and frame the issue as one of "animal deception." We have beenjust/onlyunpardonable apathetic?
8 self-satisfied/pleased complacent in our belief that aknowledgeable public would sense the importance of animal research to the public health. Perhaps we have been mistaken in not responding to the emotional tone of the argument created by those sad posters of animals by waving equally sad posters of children dying of leukemia or cystic fibrosis.
9 Much is made of the pain imposed on these animals in the name of medical science. The animal rights activists maintain that this is evidence of our malevolent and sadistic nature. A more reasonable argument, however, can be advanced in our defense. Life is often cruel, both to animals and human beings. Teenagers get thrown from the back of a pickup truck and suffer severeput forward/propose
10 Refer to P103, A Must for Learners head injuries. Toddlers, barely able to walk, find themselves at the bottomof a swimming pool while a parent checks the mail. Physicians hoping to relieve the pain and suffering these tragedies cause have but three choices: create an animal model of the injury or disease and use that model to understand the process and test new therapies; experiment on human beings some experiments will
11 Some animal-rights activists would suggest a fourth choice, succeed, most will fail or finally, leave medical knowledge static, hoping that accidental discoveries will lead us to the advances.Some animal-rights activists would suggest a fourth choice,claiming that computer models can simulate animal experiments, thusmaking the actual experiments unnecessary. Computers can simulate,In P5, the writer put forward argument of activists and then attack it in his own defence.

However, when the principles themselves are inquestion, as is the case with the complicated biological systems understudy, computer modeling alone is of little value.under debate/being challenged
13 One of the terrifying effects of the effort to restrict the use of animals in medical research is that the impact will not be felt for years and decades: drugs that might have been discovered will not be; surgical techniques that might have been developed will not be; and fundamental biological processes that might have been understood will remain mysteries. There is theParallelism & omissiondiscovereddeveloped

15 a rare experience. Yet our good fortune should not make us unappreciative of the health we enjoy or the advances that make it possible. Vaccines, antibiotics, insulin and drugs to treat heart disease, hypertension and stroke are all based on animal research.

16 in animals. Presently undergoing animal studies are techniques to insert genes in humans in order to replace the defective ones found to be the cause of so much disease. These studies will effectively end if animal research is severely restricted.In America today, death has become an event isolated from our daily existence out of the sight and thoughts of most of us. As a doctorcertainly, actually
17 who has watched many children die, and their parents grieve, I am particularly angered by people capable of so much compassion for a dog or a cat, but with seemingly so little for a dying human being. These people seem so isolated from the reality of human life and death and what it means.Make no mistake, however: I am not advocating the needlessly cruel
18 treatment of animals. To the extent that the animal-rights movement has made us more aware of the needs of these animals and made us search harder for suitable alternatives, they have made a significant contribution. But if the more radical members of this movement are successful in limiting further research, their effortswill bring about a tragedy that will cost many lives. The real question is
19 whether an indifferent majority can be aroused to protect its future against a vocal, but misdirected, minority.
20 1. Have you ever heard about medical research on animals or animal rights movement? Claude Bernard, 1813—1878he was one of the founders of proper, experimental physiology, and started the experiments on animals.It was in Britain in the 18th century that the advocacy of animal rights began. The animal rights movement has grown considerably in recent decades. As a result of protests by animal rights groups, hunting endangered species has been banned in most countries. Now some animal right groups have focused their attention on the treatment of animals in scientific research.
21 2. What animal is most often used in animal experiments?

23 most of words used to modify “animal experiments” are: Sadistic, brutal, cruel, shame, disaster, etc., which indicates that quite a few people take an opposing position against this issue, but what stand does the writer take in the text? How does he uphold his stand?

25 The debate over animal experiments is deadly serious The debate over animal experiments is deadly serious. In Britain, we've seen bombings, hunger strikes and death threats.
