The purpose of this proposed study is to examine the opinions of different age groups on animal rights and animals in research. This is important to study because it can bring attention to animals being abused and it can possibly help find a substitute for animal testing. The sample for this study will be 50 participants who are between 15 and 21, 22 and 32, 33 and 45, 46 and 60, and 70 and older. Participants will be asked to complete a low risk survey, on paper and pencil, that focuses on animal rights and the way animals get treated in research labs. The expected outcome of these results are that the 70 and older age group will be more likely not as supportive for animal rights whereas the younger age groups would be more supportive of animal rights.
