Animal experiments in statements of the Church of England
The aim of the article is to analyze the statements of the Church of England on the ethical aspects of conducting experiments on animals. From the rich teaching of this community on eco-theological topics, several documents were selected that deal with these issues. They show the evolution and development of teaching and an attempt to relate moral norms to the legislation of the United Kingdom. The Church of England recognizes the need to include the 3R principle in scientific research, supplementing it with the postulate of human responsibility for animals.
