Your article "Procter & Gamble's Testing on Animals: When Will It End?" (Newsline, March 1988) missed the point of our objection to the dumping on Procter & Gamble (P&G) by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). It's not that P&G couldn't be doing more, or that we, as animal activists, shouldn't be pressuring all companies to do more. Rather, it's that there are so many corporations doing little or nothing to phase down and phase out lab animal use, that it defies common· sense to pick on the company that's been a pioneer in the development and implementation of alternatives.
