Robin Webb — Children of Researchers Are Legitimate Targets

Robin Webb, longtime animal rights extremist and UK spokesman for the Animal Liberation Front, went on record in September as saying that children are legitimate targets of animal rights extremism.

In Sept. 19 article in the Sunday Herald, Webb was quoted as dismissing criticism of animal rights extremists’ practice of targeting children and spouses of animal researchers,

Some say it is morally unacceptable but it is equally unacceptable to use animals in experiments. The children of those scientists are enjoying a lifestyle built on the blood and abuse of innocent animals. Why should they be allowed to close the door on that and sit down and watch TV and enjoy themselves when animals are suffering and dying because of the actions of the family breadwinner? They are a justifiable target for protest.
