I've read the motion and I think the Vegan Society Council have missed the point by objecting to it.
To briefly paraphrase the motion, "The Vegan Society should be able to quote animal experiments for any reason consistent with its purpose".
So, as an example, to say "Aspirin causes birth defects in mice and rats, but not humans. Therefore, mice and rats should not be used to test drugs for humans" is to cite animal research, while also promoting the Vegan Society's purpose. What's wrong with that ?
