<div class="quote-block">WASHINGTON Days in the laboratory are numbered for chimpanzees, humans' closest relative.<br>
Chimps paved astronauts' way into space and were vital in creating some important medicines. But the government said Thursday that science has advanced enough that from now on, chimpanzees essentially should be a last resort in medical research a move that puts the United States more in line with the rest of the world.</div>

If they decrease the number of chimps used but increase other animal experimentation, is it really a victory? I'd like to think it's a victory, but I'm not sure how I feel about this.
