Animal testing saves people's lives. If we could only test humans finding willing volunteers for something that has never been tested on animals would be incredibly difficult. Medical research and progress would halt.
Unnecessary suffering for animals should be avoided, so if possible the medical testing should avoid causing the animal pain (i.E. Use anesthesia). But human life should come first.
It is regrettable that animals must be tested on for medical purposes, but it is indeed absolutely necessary. We can't go straight from a petri dish to a human test without first testing on animals; better a rat dies of some horrible side-effect than a human.
Anyone who thinks it's not okay to test on animals for medical purposes but who isn't also an outspoken vegan is an incredible hypocrite.
How would you like to be a scientific project and be subjected to cruelty. Although it may benefit others due to medical breakthroughs, I don't believe that it makes it OK to sacrifice the life of an animal. I believe that it is simply quite rude how people could just push aside the rights of poor animals for our own benefit.
However, it wasn't the case for animal testings because its purpose of animal experiments was to check the safety of products for human usage. There is a lot of products tested on the animals so it's an example of animal cruelty.
I'd give my support if the products were tested on human beings. Hell, it'd be profit for human test subjects.
Just because animals can't argue with us about it doesn't mean it is okay. Animals can't speak or stand up for themselves . Would you like it if somebody came up to you and sprayed you with deadly gases;no you wouldn't . It's just wrong. I would rather smell bad then use perfume that was tested on a bunny rabbit. Animals have feelings too!😡
"the question is not, can they reason? Nor, can they talk? But, can they suffer?" - Jeremy Bentham, 1748-1832.
Do I want to live if I can be given some medicine, the development of which caused horrific suffering to thousands of rabbits? No thanks, I'll take death, with a clean conscience.
