Animals should not be used for medical experimentation

In the World many groups and organizations are debating whether or not animal testing should be banned. Some people believe that there are reasons why animal testing should be done. Others believe that animal testing is morally wrong. Some experts also feel that there are other options available. The research proves that because there are other options available, animal testing should be banned.



Animal Testing

There has been much controversy about using animals in experiments for decades. People converse over different alternatives for animal testing and the inhumane way scientists treat these animals in experiments. This topic causes so much controversy because there are ethical issues to consider such as the treatment of the animals and the reasoning behind testing on these animals if it’s for a greater cause or not. As of now, I am for animal testing for many beneficial reasons that come out of animal testing. Although in some cases animals maybe abused, there have been so many discoveries with medicine with testing these drugs on animals.

Until we find a better way of testing drugs I believe animal testing is ethical. The research that has been gathered from animals has surpassed anything scientists could hope for. So why would such a highly debatable topic arise from such great accomplishments? Scientists use animals to test a theory and then alter their theories based upon the valuable information gathered from each experiment. Animal rights activists believe that animals are used for pointless tests and suffer tremendously (Beckoff, M. & Meaney, C. A, 1998). They tend to look aside from the facts that animals have given millions around the world a new outlook on life, and would rather see only the negative side effects of animal testing which far outweighs the positive things animal testing has contributed to the medical world. They don’t realize that the animals they believe are being harmed, have not only impacted their lives in some way, but have impacted their families, friends, and children by providing people with vaccines and antibiotics which are deserving of more accreditation than what they label them.

Millions of lives are saved every year because of one animal’s, results to either a drug or new form of surgery, and I believe instead of believing that an animal’s life was a waste; I view it instead as the next step in bettering people’s lives for hundreds of years to come. Animal testing is the most predominant forms of testing used by scientists; the results they yield bring a new outlook on life for millions around the world.

Animal testing should be outlawed because it is hurtful and not necessary. Do animals feel the same pain that we as humans feel? How do we know that other humans feel pain? We know that we ourselves can feel pain. We know this from direct experience of having your finger slammed in a drawer, or stubbing your toe on a chair.

It is said that pain is a mental event; something that can not be observed. Pain is something that is felt, and we can only assume that other humans feel pain from external indications such as our own like crying, screaming, or jerking away from something. If we can justify that other humans feel pain, why is it said that animals do not feel pain? When an animal is poked, burned, or stepped on; they will cry, yelp, or jerk away. Since the external indicators are the same, we can assume that animals feel the same pain that we as humans feel. Animal protection advocates stress that the main disadvantage of animal testing is the inhumane treatment of animals in tests due to the fact that anesthesia for the help of pain is often not used. Scientists say that using anesthesia will interfere with test results.

Tests that are performed on animals range from them being forced to ingest different household cleaning products and then monitored to see the results and new cosmetics placed on their skin to find out if there are any side effects that would be harmful to a human. There are even some practices where animals are forced to ingest a medicine before it is put on the market to make sure that there are no life- threatening illnesses that will be caused to a human from taking the product. In order to test corrosive chemicals like Savage Acid and Goodbye Graffiti, rabbits backs are shaved and corrosive chemicals are applied onto their raw skin and left for up to two weeks. The chemicals burn the skin and the rabbits are given no pain relief. After the testing period the rabbits used are then killed.

Today the term “vivisection” is used. Vivisection is defined as “cutting while still alive” but it is more commonly used today as any harmful experiment or test that is performed on an animal. Animal experimentation involves the incarceration of animals and poisoning, mutilation, disease and killing of those individuals. It is arguably the most brutal and most severe form of violence in the modern world.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires by law that pesticides be tested on dogs, which are shoved into "inhalation chambers" where they try in vain to escape the deadly poisons that are pumped in. The Food and Drug Administration requires companies marketing fluoride products to swab the teeth of 200 rats with the test substance for two weeks, at which time the animals are killed and their heads baked in an oven for an hour and your tax dollars are funding these types of experiments. Some businesses that test on animals include: Clorox, Clairol, Calvin Klein Cosmetics, Cover Girl, Dial Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, and Playtex Products Incorporated.

It is said that an estimated 50,000 animals die due to the testing on them that Proctor and Gamble performs on them every year. “Secretly-filmed video evidence of P&G sponsored experiments at Huntingdon Life Sciences (a major multi-national contract animal testing company) shows the brutal treatment and killing of 48 monkeys.” (Murray-West, R, 2005) One other business that performed testing on animals was IAMS. I know, you wouldn’t think that a company that made food for your pet to keep them healthy would test on animals much like your pets. Some of the tests that IAMS performed were:

  • 28 female cats had their abdomens cut open and solution injected repeatedly into their bowels.
  • 24 young dogs were given kidney failure by the removal of one kidney and the damaging of the other. All the dogs were killed after being fed an experimental diet and their kidneys analyzed.
  • 18 young Great Danes were fed on differing diets and at eighteen months of age. Their bones from their front and back right legs were cut out and then stressed until they broke. Pigs were also used in similar experiments.

Since cosmetics and household items are not required to be tested on animals and since there are non-animal alternatives, it is difficult to understand why companies continue to conduct these cruel tests on animals. The two main reasons that all companies do not become cruelty free are: the fear for human safety and the fear of product liability suits.

Founded in 1981 was Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT), a place that is dedicated to helping find new methods to replace the laboratory animals that is being tested on. The CAAT vision states: “To be a leading force in the development and use of reduction, refinement, and replacement alternatives in research, testing, and education to protect and enhance the health of the public.” (CAAT)

The main disadvantages to animal tests, according to John Frazier and Alan Goldberg, of CAAT, are: "Animal discomfort and death, species-extrapolation problems, and excessive time and expense." (CAAT) Revlon Cosmetics was one of the first large companies to fund the research for alternative testing with a contribution of $750,000 to the Rockefeller University in 1979. Keep in mind that, while companies search for alternatives, animal use actually INCREASES because the old test (using animals) must be done alongside the new test (without animals) to ensure consistent results.

So what types of alternatives are being used today? The most common alternatives that are used today are: in-vitro tests, computer software, and even human “clinical tests”. The use of animal cells, organs, and tissue cultures are also deemed as alternatives, however animal lives are still sacrificed for the use of their parts.

How can someone that kills a dog in the middle of a street in broad daylight have repercussions to abide by but the companies that slowly kill animals with the tests that they perform on them not have any repercussions to pay? There are laws in place for the safety of animals that are on our streets or that live with us as companions, but there are no laws that say it is wrong for businesses to slice a dog open while it is still alive with no anesthesia just to take tests of its kidney.

The animals can not tell the scientist that they don’t want to be tested on, but humans can. We need to talk for the animals and help stop this cruel and inhumane treatment. There are many other ways that products and medicine can be tested; the use of innocent animals is no longer needed.

So, the next time you pick up a product at the store; look at the fine print before you take it to the register to pay. Make sure that the products you use don’t support the inhumane killing of an innocent animal. The animal that is being killed for a shampoo that you are buying could be someone’s companion.

kate 7 years ago

i don'r really agree with jas. there are regulations when it comes to animal testing. people aren't trying to be cruel. besides, only about 4% of animal testing is for medication. the greater part of testing is for cosmetics. and as far as medication, it has really made a leap in our knowledge of medicines and the way everyone's bodies work. and it's not like people just torture the animals. they do try and make them feel better as much as it's possible in the testing environment. they don't like it as much as we do when they get hurt.

I don't agree with kate,because there are really cute animals that we can take care of and who cares if they say if it's 4% all cares is that these poor animals should rescued and you never know if those animals are going tolove you for what we have done for them.I say that animal testing should STOP!!!!!!!!!!!


lover animal 6 years ago

III don't understand you Kate I can't belive that you don't have feelings for these animals look we are animals to and we wouldn't like them doing a test on us so then we shouldn't do animal testing on them.Like hey kate they have'nt hurtn us so why hurt them.

they feel pain to Kate the only difference is that they can't talk. We should be their voices.

Animals are not much lesser than us humans, And i think they shouldn't be tested on just for our benefits.

They feel pain just as much as we do, and because they cant express the amounts of pain they are feeling, we use it to our own advantage. And that just ins't fair !

I'm a high school student doing a research report on this topic, I completely understand were all of you are coming from on this matter. I to care for animals and would do anything to save them from a life full of torture, abuse, and death...but I have a question for all of you...have you ever had anyone very close to you die from some kind of ftal illness? such as cancer? Well I have, and i've looked into animal research alot, and found that not all animals are dieing for no reason. I think people don't understand that scientists are trying to find a cure for these awful diseases, and yes unfortunately they use animals, but without those animals we probablly wouldn't have things like chemo therapy and all these other forms of treatments. i think we should stop COSMETIC animal testing but continue the scientific research of medicime for terminal illnesses. How would you feel if you had a son or daughter that was diagnosed with some form of cancer? of course the only thing that would be on your mind is ''how can they get better?'' now think if we had a cure, animals are helping to contribute to that,.

now think all you want of me and my opinion, but that's just all it is...an opinion

Animal testing has not only failed to find one single real cure for human disease, but has greatly hindered any progress.

The force-testing of synthetic toxic drugs on animals (that later go on to kill humans), burn and radiation experiments (NASA is conducting right now), paralyzing and deforming animals, trying to replicate human disease, head injury experiments -- this is not science, this is sadism!

Humans are the real guinea pigs. After literally thousands of primates were killed for heart transplant experiments, the first human baby (Baby Faye) still DIED. Even the inventor of the polio vaccine, Jonas Salk (who confessed to sacrificing 14,000 primates in testing), later publicly admitted in 1977 in Science Journal that the vaccine was the CAUSE of cases of polio! How many human lives were destroyed after the useless pre-clinical data of animal research deemed it “safe”?

"Official data have shown that the large-scale vaccinations undertaken in the US have failed to obtain any significant improvement of the diseases against which they were supposed to provide protection."

Dr A. Sabin, developer of the Oral Polio vaccine (lecture to Italian doctors in Piacenza, Italy, December 7, 1985)

In fact, health officials admit that polio in Nigeria is still being caused by the vaccine itself used purportedly to “prevent” it.

I have been against animal testing for a long time. Testing on animals especially for cosmetics makes no sense. If the products can be harmful, why would we use them? Find human test pilots if the products are intended for human use!

this is rediculous. animal testing is just wrong. even though study shows that b/c of the testing millions of lives were saved but it all comes down to the life that was tooken. the animal life was taken away from it b/c of cruel punishment for no wrong doing. i think scientist should find another way to do testing or find other animals other than monkeys and chimps that are similar to humans. like rats. the rat population is higher than the monkeys so stop killing them. the monkeys that is. kill the rats.

im here again to make a point to all who is listening. i do understand the fact that animal testing is just plain wrong and i myself wants to help fight against it but i read a comment left by a blogger on this site and it got me thinking. she stated "have you ever lost someone close to you from a fatal disease?" and to answer that the answer would be yes. i lost my aunt to lung cancer 1 year ago and it was horrible for me to deal with. i do, truly understand that animal testing is wrong but maybe thinking about things like that and the fact that testing these animals to find a cure that could have saved that loved one makes you look at thing differently. but that doesn't mean that animal testing is the answer to everything. there are other ways we just have to discover them.

I see your concerns towards animal testing, but I still disagree. I see that there have been quite a few failures with animal testing procedures. You see, all have been complaining of the failures or the harm of common household materials on the animals. That is all everyone seems to see, the dark. The simple way to fix this all is to completely stop the animal testing of cosmetics and household items, and only do medical testing until a viable suppliment is provided. This way the toll of animals greatly decrease, and the medical testing can continue to a less affecting degree until a feesable replacement is found where it would no longer harm animals. Now that the seed has been set, stop complaining of the deed and start thinking of a replacement instead.

Animal testing is animal abuse, to be locked up in a cage where they cant get out and poked at cut and mistreated is not right wake up its 2010 go test humans before animals we are the one who will use the drugs not them they should not suffer anymore for humans, we take their homes to build ours, and trash what we leave for them, ie oil spills cutting down the rainforest, forest fires etc.. its just wrong, people that test on animals should be locked up in jail for the rest of their lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Navnoor i never approved anything in favor of human testing.. However i did mention a fact that there are more humans than animals. So why not use humans for drug testing? But here is the biggest problem... Do you know that human testing can be cheaper than animal testing? There are many poor people today who volunteer for drug testing and in return they get paid nominal amounts. If we compare animal testing on monkey to testing on human,we can clearly see that monkey is more expensive than what humans are paid. So its very easy to exploit poor and needy people in the name of testing and research.

people who think animal testing is cruel are correct, but think of it this way, would you rather have someone you love be used to test the safety of a product? would you rather have them cut open and have their stomachs injected with products that are not known if they are safe or not?

Exactly, you would NOT want a PERSON you love to have this happen to them so until new ways are introduced to test safety of products stop crying all over the things that happen to these helpless animals and start realizing that without these tests, many more humans would die

Hugh and Gary and thinkbeforeyouspeak, would you like to be tortured, cut open while your awake and forced into small spaces and kept there half starved??? testing on humans is much more humane and the testing actually works, and people consent to it, instead of being forced, humans don't get cut up while they are awake. That would be illegal, why they do it is because it is cheap. People who consent are treated very well and if it reacts with them they are treated. The animals are killed. you are naïve.

Genevieve 6 years ago

History has shown us that even if drug companies test their new "drug of the month" on animals, there are no guarantees that it is safe. We have all seen many times drug recalls and lawsuits because these money making drugs cause an unforeseen disease. Did you know that you cannot hold drug companies accountable if you fall ill or die from vaccinations, so covering their asses is no excuse because no matter the consequence they will get away with it. Lets face it people, drug companies are not there to save you, or cure anything, they are there to make money and that is all. There is no miracle pill that cures everything.

Although it is true that animal testing has afforded us the opportunities to make huge medical advancements, where do you draw the line? When is abuse too much abuse? Was the treatment of the Jews by the Nazis okay? Some may say that it is not the same to compare humans and animals in terms of feelings. But to me we are all the same in that respect, if the conditions described in the above article were done to my husband, I would die inside. But I would die just as much if it happened to my dog. So are the animals we don't know any different than the ones in our living rooms? Would you be able to watch while your dog was being fed chlorine bleach? Would you watch while your dog was in horrible pain and slowly dying with no relief? Even if the testing was not so horrible, would you be able to watch as the mental state of your dog deteriorated from being in a metal cage for years and never being afforded the luxury of a loving caress? Animals do feel depression, it has been shown in pigs.

When I think of animal testing, sometimes it seems like no big deal because it doesn't affect me at the moment. But, if my mother was ill, would I be able to do what is described above to an animal, would I be able to torture? Would the illness of my mother justify my own cruelty? To me, the answer is no.

When if comes down to it, animal testing is a question of selfishness. That I matter more than others. It is absolutely not a question of species survival, but of individual "survival". Some would ask, but what is wrong with that, isn't that the way of nature? Sure, some cruelty is expected in nature, but not to the level that we have risen. I also think that we have consciously chosen to separate ourselves from nature, so maybe it is time to choose what is ethically right, to what is "natural".

There is a question that we will never know the answer to and that is: Where would medicine be without animal testing? Maybe it wouldn't be as far behind as everyone believes. Ancient civilizations achieved amazing feats without what we believe would be impossible without today's technology.

Next time you think that animal testing/torture is acceptable, look at your dog or cat.

I love the fact that some humans feel they are above or outside of mother nature, meaning that animals are nature, and humans are not, talk about endangered species also makes me shake my head. Who are we as humans to feel that we are beyond mother nature/god to determine what species stays or goes. A prime example how folks typically think minning is bad when it can create side effects, like in this case a acid lake, Berkeley Pit Lake in Butte Montanna. Nothing lives in the water, except organisims that live nowhere else on this planet, these organisims are now a possibility to fight cancer. Now this acid water is not animals, but a point to be remembered as where there is death, there is life. Typically these labs are not trying to torture the animals, and yes as humans we have many emotions and feelings for other life.

Ask yourself this, you are on a table dying, the doctor tells you, we can save you but we would have to kill this monkey in order to do so, the monkey will feel no pain, we will put him to sleep, it is up to you if you wish to live.

What would your choice be, or think of your loved one. Now for those that use torture or harmful things to the animals for non health/life changing type testing, yes that should not be allowed.

Something else to ponder, do you think the lion takes care to try to do the least painful method when killing its prey? Again yes that is for food, but that point aside and not tyring to seem not caring, as I do care about all life forms, but to be able to move forward. Sometimes you have to sacrafice, and life after all is not fair. Something most folks have a hard time getting a grip on, that life is never fair and nor should we choose actions to try to balance the table.

Rest assured if the table was turned the lion would eat us and would not care about what sort of pain we were in as it mauls us. Life is a cycle, sometimes extremely beautiful, yet sometimes gruesome. After all we humans are part of mother nature also, weather we choose to believe it or not, man made is not a disaster, nor are 80% of our actions. The good we try to do far outweighs the minority of the bad, all animal testing is not the bad evil folks proclaim it to be, some yes, all no.

Next time you think about animal testing look at your dog or cat, but then also think about someone very close to you dying, and they could save them but it would mean losing your dog or cat, which will you choose..

don't put that hypothetical pull on your emotion B.S on the table, because as hard as it would be I know I would choose to lose my loved family pet over losing my loved one.. would it suck, you bet it would, sometimes life sucks, get over it, great people make hard choices, those who cant or don't choose the easy road.

Animals should not die for us


kia michelle schuneman 6 years ago

some of you are compeletly wrong. animals are imporant to alot of people just because your full of bs and want animals to die, well good for you. you got your way millions of animals die each day alone, sad not happy, they want to die, do you want this!? i hope not, have a heart, don't say test on animals because would you want that! think of your family dog, sitting there, in its cage all alone cold, and knows its about to die...it makes me sad that some of you are saying that you support this stuff. it cold:/ and i am only 12 and i know better shame on you.

Animals and humans are the same. Animals shouldn't have to suffer. They have done nothing bad to derserve this. Humans are very selfish. Animals are living and breathing and do have a life. Stop thinking about yourselfs. I love animals and I think they should be left alone.

inthis content I saw the critics of many! I'll say that some are right and some are wrong. I,m an animal expert and I know the reason scientists do experimentations on animals, but sometimes they kill many animals in a project that doesn't work in particular animal, so they die invane. I think this should stop or scientists should study first what kind of animal is compatible with a type of medication, not just doing it without seen the ttrade-offs.


the_one 6 years ago

people who think that animals are just like humans are right in some ways. they do feel pain and hunger and thirst as well as other things but you can not humanize animals. I know animal testing is wrong but how would you like it if your child was born with Blue baby syndrome is a layman's term used to describe newborns with cyanotic conditions and the doctor could not save your child because Vivien Thomas did not first cure it in dogs after causing it so that children everywhere born with it could live.

Honestly all of you need to find a better alternative for testing.

Imogen 5 years ago

I agree that it is wrong to kill animals for testing or indeed harm them. We are said in Christianity to be placed on this earth as the steward, to look after what God created and by using animals for own vanity in cosmetic testing and medical testing we are in turn going against the position that God bestowed on us. I understand that if we didn't test on animals we would need to test on humans which is considered to be more wrong as we have a 'soul' and feelings that we can communicate to everyone. Then again must we use animals as they get considered as the weaker, less emotional forms with no soul....?

The main thing that we must understand is that no matter what, there is little we can do, as we need vaccines and we need cures to be produced to save lives from fatal illnesses like cancer. If we didn't use animals what would we use?

It's sad but all we can do is make the time spent by lab animals to be more comfortable and pleasant while hopefully finding a suitable method involving less animals to produce the needed medicines.

My feelings towards using animals in testing as a whole is its morally wrong!

too-tru 5 years ago

Animal experiments are closely monitored so that the least suffering possible is experienced by the animal. Animal experiments are also expensive: they would not be done if there was not a clear benefit.

The benefit is that you, me, our loved ones and friends have medicines that treat or cure and don't make patients worse within unforeseen side effects.

I love animals too, but I will not kid myself into thinking that we would have all the Parkinson's, CF, Heart Disease, cancer, vaccines, Alzheimer's, HIV drugs that we have now (to name but a fraction) without animal experiments. Those are the facts. Don't like animal experiments? Then don't go the doctor for treatment: refuse drug therapy for you and your children. Those who think that the scientific community know enough about our bodies, guess again: remember Viagra? That was designed as a heart disease treatment, yet unknown side effects meant they found it was far more effective for "you-know-what".

Without animal experiments that would happen all the time, only the side effects could be the likes of liver failure, birth defects, brain damage, massive immune response etc.... rather than unexpected tumescence.

Don't be naïve in thinking that scientists are cackling sadists, and don't be naive in thinking that we would have the medical progress we have without A.T. I don't relish the thought of A.T., but until we know the Human physiology and biochemistry back to front, it is a necessary unpleasantness.

what a f*ckup re the testing, but of course 'too-tru' above has some valid points, based on what fact I'm unsure, although logical none the less. Although testing for goddamn shampoo and body care is a freaking joke. P&G can go jump with that sort of behaviour. I'd rather stink than use AT body products.

Science and progression is required, and as much as tesitng on chimps and semi thinking creatures makes me ill, you have to think about the millions, and I mean millions that suffer in Africa from HIV and even starvation. Shouldn't we be more concerned about people? Or do we let the furry creature button inside set our standards. Sick of seeing third world people die on TV? it's easier to feel sorry for the animals who aren't self aware.

I mean who da hell do scientists think that the can hurt poor defenseless animals, they may be thinking its the best for humans but that cruel!

i mean their methods are sooo inhumane that it brings tear 2 my eyes. Do scietists even stop 2 think wat those animals are feeling while they're slabbing corrive acids on their raw skin. If i was 2 do dat, i would kill myself with guilt because i couldn't be able 2 live with the fact that i hurt a defenseless living things.

Animals FEEL they scream in agony when they get hurt, just like us, so stupid scientists n ppl wu agree wit scientists, put yourself in the animal's place.

garfunkle 5 years ago

I would just like to point out that humans raise animals for slaughter, even altering animals' genetic codes, all to have a better meal on their tables. I am vegetarian. I would like to ask all of you who have thusfar cried out against animal testing if you have stopped eating meat. I bet the majority of you have not.

I understand that animals are a necessary source of food, rich in protein. And I get the fact that if humans did not consume animals, their population would increase too much to be supported by the carrying capacity. However, I think a bigger issue is how we treat animals on farms, or even in our homes. Lab animals are actually treated quite well; vivisection is greatly reduced, experimental ablation rates are decreasing as we now have technology (ex. transcranial magnetic stimulation, PET, MRI) to view brain activity.

Animal research has had enormous benefits to medicine for human AND non-human animals. I know it seems cruel that we mainly do this research to benefit ourselves (animal rights defenders call this "speciation") but let's face it-- the animal kingdom collectively requires it.

Animal slaughter to satisfy our carnal hunger is wrong. Animal research for medicine (which is governed by very stringent sets of rules) is just necessary, in my opinion.:S

There can never be a clear-cut answer to this. No one can truly appreciate the need for animal research until they've seen a loved one on the verge of death.

I believe animals shouldn't be used for comistics and household items. But they should be used for medicine and surgerical needs. Why? Because the testing on them helps the human race. I also believe we have actually changed the agricultural system in America. Now farm animals die in humane way. I also believe animals won't go extinct. The people of this world would not allow it.

almba 5 years ago

To test on animals such as chimpanzees and other animals that have the ability to recognize fear and are intelligent enough to teach their young is totally unethical. Just because we are "smarter" than animals does not mean that testing on them is okay because they have "inferior" brain capacities. If you argue that point then you can justify using people who have mental disabilities. Would we ever do that? OF COURSE NOT. So to say it is justified or there is no other way is just a cowardice way of saying we don't feel like trying to search for another solution.

Yes animal testing has lead in the medical field. BUT it's still not right to test cosmetics or anything on that on them, that's going to make them sick and or make them hurt. It's not right. I wouldn't go as far as saying it's the best thing in the world, but not the worst thing in the world. But then again, animals die because of the tstings they go through. I don't like it one bit. It still isn't right to do.

ok, for those who think animal testing is k, think about this for a second:

What if people tested products on us which could make us sick, cause us a lot of pain, and even make us die, just to see if PET products are safe for the pets? we wouldn't like that* sure eeryone says "Oh yea, but one animal can safe thousands", but that one had a reason for living* one dog, cat, or bunny had a life, but was taken away for us* We already some animals for food, now we r killing them for no reason* And i think its really wrong* I acctually have a dog, and i would burst out into tears to find out if people were doing testing on him,t hat could make him so sick, or die* I know medicine is important, and I know that without it, we wouldn't have cues for anything* But there shoud be another way to test it, other than hurting a living creature*

i think this is cruel and unfair to animals this king of thing should be illegal those poor creatures are suffering feeling pain and can't do anything to stop it.people are stupid their enjoying wearing their making and perfume and they don't realize that animals are being tested and dying just so they can look and smell good. scientists need to find another thing to test on that inst living. government is hiding all of this from the people cause i bet if a video of animals being tortured was put on TV people would feel bad and vote against animal cruelty unless they have no heart.

let's try to be realistic would you like to test some drugs on you ??? if you were dying woudn't you accept animals testing ?? with all my respect but i don't think so

the only way for us to fight deseases it's to taste those drugs on animals ; i do like animals but if tasting on them drugs is going to help a lot of people to live i would accepte it


Alienyi jerry 4 years ago

I'm sure d people who claim not to support animal testing are not sincere,they are only hypocritical.they can only justify themselves if they don't kill it for food or use the drugs which through animal testing was made. It is sad to hear people conderm d scientist who kill animals for the benefit of many when they kill these same animal for their own selfish consumption! The defferences btw. us & these animals are clear-we've soul they don't. we stand to give account on how we live our life they don't. we've a dream we are pursuing,they don't. and many more,so why compare our feelings with dogs,goat,monkey & even mosquito,aah,what a humiliation!


keke2087 4 years ago

for a human to do that to such a harmless creature is heartless and deserves to go to jail and get locked up in a cage. just like they did the animals.i understand that as humans we need things to survive and help us but were not the only living thing on this planet that can feel think eat nd sleep. i feel like there choosing to test on animals because its not very costly and if they were to test on something else it would cost. if people were to buy products that support animal testing shouldn't we buy products to help the scientists/doctors to pay for the stuff that they're going to test on other than animals..... see my point im making here lol with that being said love yahll STOP ANIMAL TESTING!!! and god bless


hind 4 years ago

(keke2087) what do you mean by "other than animal" if scientists find another way to test drugs without hurting those animals then we shoudn t test drugs on animals but as long as they didn't find any way we can't do anything about it will you let somebody to test drugs on you ???

blunt lady 4 years ago

i think that if humans want a cure so much they should test on the humans. animals never gave their consent to be used and the idiots that think that animals should be happy they died for a cuase should really shut up. if humans want a cure sooo badly they should be willing to give their lives so that someone after them can live from what is found from that research. this may all seem harsh but that's my opinion.

Look at the bigger picture. If you are not a vegetarian then technically you are for animal testing. The meat that you eat is from an animal that has been killed and the products on your shelf are from animals that have been tortured and some killed. It is cruel but you can't really say that you are against animal testing if you eat meat.

Chris 4 years ago

It is fair to say, if animals were never used for any sort of research, science and particularly medicine would not have advanced to where it is.

Researchers don't take the lives of animals for fun. In fact, they do the "dirty" work for us so that we can live our "more ethical" lives.

Of course, it is easy to neglect their contributions to our society and point at what they put the animals through. But in retrospect, if you or your family or friend is suffering from a disease, wouldn't you rather know that there is a cure? Without animal testing, I'm afraid there would never have been one.


4 years ago

if you really oppose animal testing then stop taking all of the medications that you take, because all of those went through similar testing with animals. its a naïve thought to believe that'd we'd be just as we are now without animal testing, which is what you are foolishly looking over in your "argument." once better technology comes about then maybe, but for now these tests are saving humans' lives so do yourself a favor and be thankful for what you do have

It breaks my heart to know about the things these animals are put through. They feel pain, love, hunger...everything us humans feel. Animals are innocent little creatures that were put here on earth, by God, to live and not to be tortured by researches. How would these scientists feel if these researches were performed on them! I wish we could stop these cruel tests.

I agree with animal testing because if we don´t do animal testing we would not have medicine and people can die without medicine. Also I know that they do them in animals but they don´t do them in humans because they don´t know which reflection she or he is going to have so that is why they do them in animals.


for 4 years ago

If the scientists can't use animals for testing, what can they use? They cannot obviously test the medicine on humans. In order for better medicines and treatments to be developed, there must be a testing done to make sure that the medicine is not harmful or will not kill human. It is true that animals are pitiful, but it is just wrong to say that scientists are wrong.

This is just wrong, Animals should not be used for research of any kind. People who think that animals should be used for research are heartless. No living creature should have to go through what the scientists are putting the innocent little animals through. Animals were not created so they can be abused and tested on. I see alot of stuff on the news about people who abuse and mistreat their animals and those people are charged with their crimes and since the scientists are doing the exact same thing, i agree that the scientists should go to jail or prison.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND, IF A PERSON HAS THE FLEW, AND THE SCIENTIST NEEDED TOO MAKE THE MEDICINE TO HELP, HOW DO THE DO IT TO AN ANIMAL THAT DOESN'T HAVE THE FLEW? HOW DO THE TEST SOMETHING ON AN ANIMAL WHEN IT DOESN'T HAVE CANCER? I CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT THESE PEOPLE ARE DOING. WHEN I LIVED IN N.J, THERE WAS A PLACE I WENT TO THAT WAS DOING TESTING ON PEOPLE. I HAD PATCHES PUT ON MY BACK THAT HAD SOME KIND OF LOTION ON IT. THEY KEPT CHECKING TO SEE IF I EVER GOT A REACTION TO IT. I WAS PAYED TO DO IT. THESE ANIMALS AREN'T PAYED. THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE A CHOICE. I THIS IS TOO BE KINDE, YES I DID HAVE SOMEONE CLOSE TO ME DIE FROM CANCER, BOTH MY PARENTS DIED FROM IT, MY GRAND PARENT'S ON BOTH SIDE'S ALSO DIED FROM IT, I SAT NEXT TO MY MOM AND I WATCHED HER TAKE HER LAST BREATH, HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED THAT? TOO SEE YOU'R MOM WAIST AWAY TO NOTHING AND THEN TO SEE HER TAKE HER LAST BREATH OF AIR, THAT IS THE WORST THING I HAVE EVER HAD TO DEAL WITH AND I NEVER WANT TO SEE AGAIN. I'VE ALSO HAVE CANCER TWO TIMES' MY DOCTOR SAID THAT MY FAMILY IS MORE LIKELY TOO DIE OF CANCER THAN ANYTHING ELSE. BUT, THE QUESTION IS, WOULD I WANT A DOCTOR TO TEST A DRUG ON AN ANIMAL BEFORE ME,TOO MAKE SURE IT WILL WORK OR NOT? I SAY NO!!!!!!!!!!! THAT POOR ANIMAL SHOULDN'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH SOMETHING B/C OF ME. GOD DIDN'T PUT ANIMALS ON THIS EARTH FOR TESTING. GIVE THAT DRUG TO ME. I'M MORE LIKELY GOING TO DIE ANYWAY. THAT'S THE WAY GOD WANTED MY FAMILY TO DIE OF, SO. I WILL NOT LET AN ANIMAL SUFFER B/C OF ME. COME ON PEOPLE, THERE'S A LOT OF CRAP GOING ON IN THIS WORLD ALREADY., RAISES PEOPLE, PEOPLE HOW TRY TO DO THE LORD'S WORK BY JUDGING, NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO JUDGE, ONLY GOD CAN. I'M TIRED OF TRYING TO VOICE MY OPINION. I'M NOT A FAMOUS PERSON, MO ONE CARE'S ABOUT WHAT I THINK. MR WORLY WAS A TERRIBLE PERSON. HE'S THE ONE THAT SHOULD BE PUT IN THE ELECTRIC FENCE,AND ONLY FED ONE TIME A MONTH. PEOPLE NEED TO STOP DOING THE THING'S THEY ARE DOING AND PAY MORE ATTENTION TO THEIR OWN LIVES.

Animals are not people, so what is safe on animals isn't necessarily safe on humans. Therefore, humans can die because the products they use aren't tested on them.

Dude I Love Animals! 3 years ago

To all you animal lovers out there, pet stores are making it illegal for animal testers to purchase animals to test on. I thought that was AWESOME news! By the way, I am doing a report on animal testing and why it is bad with a capital "B", so a lot of what you guys said has helped me. Thanks!


animallover123 3 years ago

Dude i love amimals, awsome news! i did not know that petstores were making it illegal to buy/sell animal sthat were testing on! How did your essay on animal testing go? Mine was awsome! peta has some really awsome facts and videos that helped me alot! have u seen their video, 1, 2, 3, animal testing? its a really sad/prusurive video about animal testing that i want to show you! email me, if ur reading this : p


Dude I Love Animals! 3 years ago

animallover123, I have crappy news. My English teacher said that my essay was good, except that it was too much like an article. In my defense, though, I'm working on writing a newspaper, which is like an article, so yeah. And by the way, you are my best friend! And I also agree with you about Bob Saget dying. In fact, if he goes to Heaven after what he said, then call me a pebble because I am not a pebble and Bob Saget is not an angel, so I seriously hope he is not reading this, but just in case, I will not call him a bad word. Anyway, yeah, I thought it was good news that testing on animals is going to be illegal. If I am president and it is not already illegal, it will be. So back to the newspaper, animallover123, do you want to help me with it? I don't know what I would want you to do, but I think it will be fun. Plus, in case I do get accepted into that Authors Quest thing, I need the $400. Also, for all you people that are like, "Oh yeah, I hate reading," then don't read this because it is not finished yet and will only be finished after the period at the end of this sentence which will be coming up shortly but never mind because I still have that essay to redo, along with a bunch of other homework and wow this sentence is not over yet, so it will be now. As Spanish people would say, Ciao!

Yes of course it's not right to experiment on animals but how they can check the influence on organism without testing on animals. Who among us is ready to agree on experiment on himself. I think nobody.
