Hey guys, I'm doing a project in religion class and I need to make an argument for or against animal testing and I need some other opinions for or against animal testing. Here are some basic pros/cons
Pros
Many discoveries in modern medicine come from this
Without it, modern science will slow to a crawl
If it is outlawed, we are hurting humans(by not doing everything we can to find a cure for diseases) to help animals.

Cons
We are hurting and torturing animals
There are alternatives that could be used that do not violate animal rights
We do not have the animals consent to test on them.

Any thoughts would be awesome! Have a great day everyone

The best place to get the con's would be Peter Singer's classic "Animal Liberation". There is a chapter devoted to animal testing.
"If you claim to value nonviolence and you consume animal products, you need to rethink your position on nonviolence." - Gary Francione
