Can PETA declare victory and start to go home?

http://www.newscientisttech.com/article/mg19025514.000

Can computer models replace animal testing?

16 May 2006
Celeste Biever
Magazine issue 2551

AS THE public debate rages over the use of animals in drug development, a change is taking place in labs across the world. The first realistic software models of human and animal organs are starting to emerge - potentially replacing some of the 50 to 100 million animals used each year for scientific research.

The first models of how the heart works were built decades ago (New Scientist, 20 March 1999, p 24), but they are much more sophisticated now. The models couple mechanical contractions to electrical waves in three dimensions, for instance, to show thousands of molecular interactions and connect the heart to a virtual circulatory system. Models of other organs, including the lung, musculoskeletal system, digestive system, skin, kidney, lymphatic system and brain are also under construction.

PETA can suck it.

They've done more harm to the rational environmental movement than any other left-oriented group, IMO.

Every member of PETA should be killed and thrown in the dumpster behind Safeway.

I don't think anything in the OP indicates that.

It's analagous to saying, "Can W just declare victory and go home?"

Stop testing on animals and start testing on criminals in the SuperMax prison in Colorado.

That's just wrong! PETA is one of the best things to happen to the environmental movement! Dammit, these people care!*

*... about trying to force towns that share the same name as meats to change their names!
