Animal testing should stop! Animals are dying from stupid things. We are bringing down most of the animals population from testing on them. The genetics between these excellent breeds of animals will cease to exist with testing. Help fight for the right of animals!

The advancements in technology and knowledge thanks to animal testing far outweigh the harm. Thanks to testing done on animals, scientists have made numerous breakthroughs in medicine. The lives of many human beings have been improved greatly as a result of these breakthoughs. Further, testing on animals leads to an increase in knowledge on these animals and can contribute to the effectiveness of animal care and conservation efforts.

I see how animal testing helps us, but testing on animals disturbs the natural selection in animals, which can lead to over population to animals that prey on the herbivores. Also animals that are tested on are proven to be killed after the testing 9/10 of the time.
Google animal testing and look at the pictures of what happens to animals after testing. Once you do that think about it, if you still do not agree that is alright. Although consider at least reducing the torture put upon these animals.
For example, if we were to keep using rabbits for tests what will the predators of the rabbit eat? Put my words into consideration.

Animal testing does not "disturb the natural selection of animals," nor does it "lead to over population to[sic] animals that prey on herbivores." Animal testing very often causes harm to the test subjects, but these tests are pernissable as they serve the greater interests of mankind. Reducing or eliminating undue harm is obviously a great idea and should be done but this is not at all the same as halting all animal testing.

In response to your example, rabbits are used often in laboratory testing and the predators of rabbits still manage to eat the tons of other rabbits still in the wild.

You should possibly do your research first. Laboratory animals are special man-made breeds that don't exist in nature. All of them are bred in captivity by humans. And if you think that so many are being sacrificed that it threatens their populations, you have no idea what you're talking about.

Reasons for voting decision: BBGun proved his points much more effectively than Riv, it seems Riv's points were purely analytical yet the fact that he gives a statistic and provides no actual citation for it discredits many of his arguments. Even though BBGun didn't use citations his points were fairly obvious without citation. BBGun successfully proves that the scientific advancements far outweigh the negatices.
