No, shouldn't because we use aimals everyday and testing is one of most important part.

I'm going to use this round to lay out the base arguments which I will go into in more depth later.

Animal testing is inaccurate as the physiology of animals and humans varies so much.
It's cruel to the animals involved, as they can feel emotions and pain.
It's significantly more expensive than alternative methods.
There are a number of alternative methods available.
Other countries have already begun to limit and ban animal testing, and the US is lagging behind in this aspect.
Most animal testing is done for unnecessary reasons.
Animal testing is slower than alternative methods.
Reliance on animal testing has nearly prevented several important medicines to get through.
