A late letter to the editor Schelde-Møller, discussing the politics of the animal rights movement. "I am not sure that my speech will be good for the animals. The friend of the animals is for the supporters of the vivisection is a fresh thought." Blixen then expresses concern about how the opponents will try and gather interest by focusing on the split of the organization "and I could do more harm than good . All test animals of higher species have my deepest compassion and I do not differ between dogs and cats. My whole action is built upon the pronouncements of Prof. Okkel. I lost confidence in the discussion because it has become virtually impossible to communicate with the scientist . I would not accept that only dogs would be accepted by vivisection. I saw in this gesture, a beginning." She gives her views. "I myself am of the opinion that the community of animal friends is more important than these differences. I wrote this to you so you could, in case, that I withdraw it not to think that I have betrayed our common goal, but to support it." Nicely signed, "Karen Blixen Finecke."
