im writing a research paper for my english class
and the rough draft is due tomorrow
the topic is on animal experimentation
i have quotes but i need to write commentary on them

these are a few of the quotes i have:
“In 1824, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) was established in England to lobby for the humane treatment of animals. The RSPCA remains Britain’s largest animal-rights group today, with 500,000 members. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was founded in 1866. One of the largest U.S. animal-advocacy groups, it currently has 350,00 members.” (Animal Testing).

“The first anti-vivisectionist society in the U.S. was formed in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1883 and sill exists today as the American Anti-vivisection Society” (Animal Testing). Vivisection is defined as the practice of performing operations on live animals for the purpose of experimentation or scientific research.

“It was not until 1966 that similar legislation was passed by the U.S. Congress, in the form of the Animal Welfare Act. That law set minimum standards for the care of animals in laboratories and required government-run and private labs to submit to random inspections by the Agriculture Department (USDA). The law has been amended three times—in 1970, 1976 and 1985—and now applies to animals exhibited in zoos and circuses and those raised by commercial breeders for sale to pet stores and researchers” (Animal Testing).

“PETA was founded in June 1980, and since then has become one of the most influential animal-rights groups in the U.S. PETA’s dedication […] has attracted 500,000 members to its cause. PETA has relied heavily on publicity and advertising campaigns that feature celebrities” (Animal Testing).

“Even more militant animal-rights supporters emerged on the national scene in the mid-1980s. Since 1984, the underground international group Animal Liberation Front (ALF) has claimed responsibility for more than 70 attacks on research labs in the U.S. in which equipment has been destroyed and animals set free. A spate of lab raids in the 1980s led to the passage of the Animal Enterprise Protection Act in August 1992, which made attacks on animal labs or farms a federal crime punishable by fines and imprisonment” (Animal Testing).
