Animal testing is a form of animal cruelty. Imagine yourself, cowering in a cage as you feel the sharp jab of the needle. Your vision clouds over....as you slip into the void. This is life - and death of one of the many animals receiving illegal experimentation. How can you inflict upon another living being what you would not want inflicted upon yourself? Monkeys restrained by neck and hand shackles struggle against the inevitable drug sweeping through there system. You might say that testing has an equal success rate. If humans think that it will be successful, why don't they take it themselves?
animals should be used for testing instead of using a human that will take their life away from their loved one just take a rat and test on a rat if you test a rat then the rat will die and not the human that possibly has family do you want to be responsible for taking a father or mother or even son or daughter away from there loving family
It's not just rats who are being tested. Pet monkeys, birds, and dogs are being put to death in the name of science. And you have also assumed that I say that humans ought to be tested instead of animals. Actually, I would prefer that illegal testing is banned altogether. Instead, simulations should test the viability and then it can be administered to volunteers and the terminally ill who have no reason to continue living and wish to be euthanized.
I must agree with you there should be a simulation but it needs to be tested at one point either on a human or an animal I think that it should be test on animals after it has been simulated and the FDA has approved of the drug if the simulation fails it should be tested in a different way if all ways fail it shouldn't make it to the testing stage if the simulation succeeds then the drug should move to animal testing if the animal testing works then it should move onto human testing
Let's hypothesize that the simulation works, yet the drug is actually harmful, although you do not know that. Proceed with animal testing, and you kill a healthy animal. Test the terminally ill who wish to die anyway, you grant them an escape from pain and suffering if the drug kills them. Rather than killing healthy, life-filled animals, wouldn't you rather save a human from endless suffering?
yes I would agree if the terminally ill patient should be able to test the drug but if there are no terminally ill patients that want to end their life then they should be able to test on animals and maybe they only have a certain amount of animals a year and if they don't they have to find out how to test it some other way
