What if more vivisectors and animal researchers came to their ethical senses and stopped abusing and exploiting their test subjects--the animals? Thousands of animals' lives could be saved and millions of your tax-dollars would no longer be wasted. It could happen if more scientists followed the path of John Gluck.

As a young boy, Gluck was kind to animals. But as a scientist, he was mentored by the notorious vivisector Dr.Harry Harlow at the University of Wisconsin. Then something clicked. He began to see the animals as patients, not tools of science. Gluck's book, "Voracious Science and Vulnerable Animals" has become a guide for scientists, especially of a new generation, seeking to practice a science aligned with their ethical identity. Gluck talks with Emil Guillermo about his ethical journey and admits he remains haunted by the faces of the animals, his test subjects.
