Con

Animal experimentation is HORRIBLE. Why do we test it on animals?There biology is different then ours anyways so sometimes we get different outcomes.Also its cruel to the animals.They didn't volunteer to die. We just assumed it was okay.But its not.WERE NOT THE ONLY LIVING THING WITH FEELINGS PEOPLE!!!! AND PEOPLE ARE TECHNICALLY ANIMALS TOO.

Pro

1. Not all experimentation is bad. While I do not deny that there are animals who don't have the best conditions, there are also many animals who ARE treated well. They have plenty of food, a large area to roam and sleep, entertainment specifically geared to keeping the animal happy. So habitation isn't an issue. But secondly, just because they are housed horribly, that doesn't give a justification for why not to experiment on them. It just means we ought to give them better stuff.

2. There are animals that have similar body systems to that of a human. Chimps are near identical to humans in a lot of features, and pigs have the same skin qualities as that of humans. By testing medicines and other products out on animals before humans, developerscan get a baseline for potential problems that would probably occur with human customers. This allows the following things to happen:

a) It allows prevention of getting humans sick.
b) It prevents possible human deaths from faulty products.
