Anti-Vivisection Article Still Top-Rated

My essay, "A Living Will Clause for Supporters of Animal Experimentation," in The Journal of Applied Philosophy is still ranked #1 out of the top 20 articles in terms of article usage since my essay's publication in 2006. It is a worldwide ranking. A similar ranking was reported to me last year. This current finding was indicated to me by Dan Nielsen of, a search engine for biomedical academic articles. I'm glad that people are finding this to be useful. This is a very encouraging objective indicator, as opposed to the negativist, basically subjectivist garbage I predictably hear from Francionists. A short synopsis of the argument is provided on my website. This should also be considered an important sign that there is a very high interest in academic animal rights even as compared to the academic atrocity machine that is blandly labeled "scientific" animal experimentation.
