The first round is just acceptance. I am for testing on humans not animals.

Experimental cosmetics, medicine and other pharmaceutical products should be tested on other animals before humans, they could create new diseases and can obviously kill a human. We kill other animals every day and i'm ready to sacrifice some of them for our own safety.

First off, we don't test on just any human maybe volunteers or even prisoners who have been given the death sentence.
Secondly, there are thousand of people against testing on animals and there have been recorded riots.
It's unethical to sentence 100 million thinking, feeling animals to life in a laboratory cage and intentionally cause them pain, loneliness, and fear. How would you like it if you were forced to live a life like that?
It's bad science. The Food and Drug Administration reports that 92 out of every 100 drugs that pass animal tests fail in humans. We are not alike so instead of wasting the money on animals and not having it be right, why not test it on a human and save the money? It's wasteful. Animal experiments prolong the suffering of people waiting for effective cures by misleading experimenters and squandering precious money, time, and resources that could have been spent on human-relevant research.

There is simply not enough death row inmates for it to be tested properly. The FDA report clearly states that it didn't pass human trial, that doesn't mean 92% of the time it causes harm or kills a human. If it were to be tested on humans only , we would be talking highly experimental drugs which could kill many human beings.

The animal sacrifice in my opinion is justified, and more and more companies have stopped doing animal trials as they already know and the FDA knows it's not harmful for humans. The purpose of animal testing is to make it safer for the human trial and eventually if it passes the user.

How can we test on animals when they are nothing like us? their bodies are different and they react differently to things. for example: dogs are allergic to chocolate but humans are not. what could hurt a human might not hurt an animal making it risky for the people who use it.
They will also lose profit. It is mandatory that they post on the product whether it was tested on animals. Statistically people are more likely to buy a product if it was no tested on animals.
