Animal rights and terrorism
FRAME does not condone any form of terrorist activities on the part of individuals or organisations, such as animal rights groups, that threaten the lives or property of those who are either directly or indirectly associated with the use of laboratory animals.

FRAME believes that the results of some terrorist activities may have led to scientific problems, such as banning cosmetics ingredients testing, or have increased animal welfare problems.
