Way to go Republic of San Marino!!!!! Isn’t there some award someone can give them for making this major move into human evolution!?

Thanks to the good person who barked in this announcement from the AnimalRightsActivistsResources Yahoo Group.

The Republic of San Marino, an independent state within central Italy and a
member of the United Nations and the Council of Europe, has become the first
nation to formally abolish animal experimentation.

Following a proposal made by the Italian anti-vivisectionist Dr Stefano Cagno,
Massimo Tettemanti and Marina Berati, supported by the San Marino Animal
Protection Society, a motion to abolish all animal experiments was submitted to
the 60 members of the Great and General Council (the national parliament of San
Marino) in September 2007, and adopted by them by a large majority. It is
therefore now forbidden by law to experiment on animals in the Republic of San
Marino.
