Medical experiments on chimpanzees can be invasive, involving injections, blood samples and liver biopsies. But some say it’s the only way to advance medicine.

In recent years, Japan, Europe and the U.K. have all ended the practice. The U.S. and Gabon are the only two nations to continue using chimpz for medical research.

Are there ever instances in which the scientific value of research should offset the moral cost of working with chimps? What are your thoughts on this?
