  • Animal testing should be banned!

    Humans voluntarily offer themselves as a testing subject for new developments for payment, while animals on the other hand have absolutely no say at all. They have no choice! Yes it would be tricky since we might run out of volunteers to test this dangerous subjects but it would be at first hand to see what it does to humans. Also, the world wide population of the world is what 7 billion now? We have plenty of people to spare! Animals are going to extinction, I say we should protect them against harm.

  • Yes it should!

    Did you know over 100,000 animals are crippled, burned and abused every day in the USA? It really isn't fair on these poor poor animals! Don't you think they have as much right to live as we have? We should get whoever is in charge of animal rights to ban it!!!!

  • Yes it should be banned!!!

    92% of drugs tested on animals do NOT work on humans. They are living, breathing, feeling and thinking beings and have the right to be free. Testing causes suffering to animals. They may have a family.In these tests animals are forced to inhale toxic gases and are exposed to radiation. 100 million innocent animals die each year from animal testing.

  • It's horrid to look at poor animals

    I cried when I heard about animal testing just look at cute animals get hurt its horrible just please stop it I love animals humans get to live but why don't puppies hamsters and bunnies and all the rest who would want to kill animals to save humans you look at animal testing images its not nice.

  • 1 English speech

    Animal Testing is CRUEL. It is not necessary to use animals to test our products.If you don't care about mice or rats, they are not the only animals being tested on. There are hundreds of thousands of dogs, cats and rabbits DYING for our cosmetics and medicine. Animal testing is wrong.

  • No, it should not.

    I could lead to a cure for cancer for god's sake people. CURE FOR CANCER. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person here who has had a family member die from cancer. It's a horrible feeling. A Cure. A Goddamn CURE. Animals can't even talk. We eat them anyway.

  • Should not be stopped

    If animal testing is stopped doctors and scientists will have to test their new drugs on humans,which is not acceptable.90% of people of the world eat non vegetarian and eat meat .If animal testing is ban even eating should be ban which most of the would not accept.Animal testing can be ban for big animals

  • Because we should not ban it

    Because we should not ban it. Animal testing is revolutionary and there is no other alternative to new medicine unless you would rather test on humans. But then you`re saying that human lives should have less value than animals. And thats wrong. So that is why animal testing should not be banned, ha!

  • What are the options?

    Animal testing is used to make sure medicine is safe for human consumption. While animal testing can sometimes cause pain and suffering for the animal, the other options almost inevitably result in pain and suffering for humans, whose welfare trumps animals. The options are:

    1. Test medicines for safety on animals
    2. Do not test medicine on animals, and just release it into the market
    3. Test on humans
    4. Don't make the medicine.

    I think animal testing should be minimized and harbor the least suffering possible for the animals, but it is a necessary evil.

  • Not for all animals

    First, what is an animal? A chimpanzee, or a whale, or an elephant, is a sentient creature. A bacterium or a worm is very different. I could understand an argument to ban testing on some species, but a blanket ban on "animal testing" seems profoundly illogical to me. I think that the type of animal in question should be considered very carefully before any law is passed or emotions get the better of people.

  • It is necessary for the medical industry.

    Unless you want all newly developed drugs and treatments to go right from the test tube to human subjects without knowing any side effects or how it works in a real body, you can't ban animal testing. Then millions of people will be devasted by the effects of untested medicines.

    You want to talk about banning animal testing for cosmetics and the like? Fine. But to ban it wholesale is the talk of the naive.

  • Animal Testing is a Necessary Evil

    When people hear about animal testing, many have a knee jerk reaction of opposition. However, even though it has a bad reputation, there are good sides to animal testing. Animal testing for the purposes of medical research should be allowed because there are no alternatives to it, it benefits animals as well as humans, and it is crucial in the advancement of medical science.
    Although technology is improving at a rapid pace, there is still no good alternative to animal testing. Because scientists need to see how an organism’s entire body is affected by an experiment, things like artificial skin and computer models of organs cannot fully replace animal testing. There are also many unknown variables in an experiment that synthetic tissues and computer simulations cannot reproduce. If there were any viable alternatives to animal testing, scientists would be using them already, as the cost of caring for and housing lab animals is very high. Unfortunately, technology has not yet advanced to a point where animal testing can be completely replaced.
    Animal testing has benefits for animals as well. Many new medical treatments for animals have been developed through animal testing. Rabies vaccines, cholera treatments for hogs, and heartworm infestation treatments for dogs have all come about through testing on animals. Animal testing also helps with the preservation of endangered species. Techniques developed using animal testing, such as embryo transfer and artificial insemination have helped with the breeding of endangered species, coupled with the results of research on animal sexual behavior. By advancing veterinary medicine and helping to preserve endangered species, animal testing benefits animals.
    Lastly, animal testing helps with the development of many new medical treatments. Without animal testing, major advances in medicine such as antibiotics, polio and cervical cancer vaccines, organ transplantation, and HIV treatments would not have been made. By enabling scientists to observe the effects of a new medical treatment on an organism, animal testing helps to advance medical science. In fact, animal testing has contributed to 70% of Nobel prizes in physiology and medicine. Animal testing plays a crucial role in the advancement of medicine.
    In an ideal world, there would be technologies available to completely replace animal testing. However, in the present day, because of all the benefits it has for humans and other animals, animal testing is a necessary evil, and should be allowed.

  • In the case of medical development it's necessary, although unfair.

    The use of animal testing in relation to cosmetic products, is wrong. Their suffering is just for the vanity of humans which is disrespectful to the animal's life.

    In the case of medical development though it is as others have said 'a necessary evil' A large percentage of the population would have died without the discovery and use of animals insulin. Therefore it is a mean of survival for humans.

    Another argument is that due to animals being biologically different from us the tests used on said animals are less accurate since,genetically, they are made up differently. Resulting in a different reaction. My reaction to this is that although I agree that animal trials can prove to be incorrect when moved on to the stage of humans. The trials reduce the risk to humans in general and therefore is beneficial.

    Although I believe that animal testing is useful, I must clarify that I do not condone the use of eye irritancy tests where the animal is forced to have irritants in their eyes until they are damaged or Lethal dose tests. These are where animals are forced to consume lethal substances and then measured on how quickly 50% die, usually within 2 weeks. Unless these things are used for medical advancement, for example deciding on how much dose of, say, immunosuppressants will be the correct dosage without too many side effects. Even then death should be prevented and when side-effects show the experiment should stop. Since the needed results have come through.

    Overall my argument is that vivisection is a necessary evil but this should not mean that animals should not experience any unnecessary suffering or death.

  • It is necessary.

    For me, we could not avoid animal testing, as much as we want to. I mean, we all know that it's wrong and animal also have rights but see it this way, it is making our world better. Most of the medicines and healing treatment and stuffs that we use for our body are from animal testing. Trust me when I say that the investigators are definitely aware of the risks and treat for the animals and the welfare of the animals are absolutely taken into account. As much as I want to agree to ban animal testing, I can't, because it is needed to improve life qualities of human beings. It's just that sometimes for research, it is needed to put them in a non-friendly environment. Believe it or not, modern surgical techniques including hip replacement surgery, kidney transplants, heart transplants, and blood transfusion were all perfected in animals. To all the people out there who said that humans can be used for testing, I disagree because humans are at the top of the food chain, so it's out of the question. Yes humans eat and it is natural that they use animals for the living. So for me, animal testing is indispensable.

  • Should not be stopped
