• We have the right

    Guys, look at this like a food chain. We humans are part of the food chain. Like how lions eat rabbits for their NEEDS, we use animals for our NEEDS. Nature gave us our brains- a specialty only to humans. Nature gave tigers their fangs and claws, as their specialty. The tiger NEED other animals for their survival. We NEED other animals too for our survival. The tigers go and get it, and so do we! So, why are you guys in the opposition against humans for obtaining our NEEDS, but not the tigers for acquiring theirs?

    You may say that we are being cruel, but aren't tigers ripping limbs out of a deer more cruel? We humans are just mammals, but with a talented brain bestowed by the nature. SO USE it! Just like how a tiger use its gift of fangs and claws! There is NOTHING wrong with us for using animals for research as we are - sorry to reiterate- obtaining our NEEDS, just like any other animals do.

  • We're talking human lives, people

    Say a loved one has been diagnosed with a once fatal disease; it may be because of animal research that medicine can help them live. If i had to choose between the life of a dog and the life of my brother, child, niece, nephew, any person i knew, i would pick the person

  • stop taking medicine people who are against this..

    People who are against treatment of animals as the experimental object for medical purpose kindly stop taking medicine or any kind of vaccine. As we all have advanced to a modern era from stone age. This progress of human transformation saw many advancement order to make not only human's but animal's life convenient as well. Taking the example of such research i would like to demonstrate it's constructive use on animal. With the help of medicine the cow who got seek of some disease can be cured and made to produce 20 litre milk a day.The lion suffering with any disease can be cured back to normal. So, the development of such research doesn't only help us while it gives back life to animals suffering with any problem as well. I also agree with the nature's food chain as explained by many fellows above. Can you stop a snake hunting mice and make it to eat grass, no you can't. As many people told the whole world is a family, I request them to convert the non vegetarian animals into vegetarians as ng a family member it should be your responsibility. I also request them not to use any medicine if they are fallen ill, only then you could support your arguments.

  • Testing on animals is a good thing, but it's also a bad thing.

    If we didn't test on animals we wouldn't know if a certain medicine is good for us or it doesn't work. The experiments are sometimes bad. For example, using animals for makeup, that's bad. We don't need makeup-.-. That's pretty much useless. The poor animals shouldn't suffer to make a woman pretty. -,-

  • This testing helps keep humans safe.

    Would I rather have my hair fall out and become bald or the rabbit's hair which was going to be used for other purposes anyway? Do I want my skin to be burned by unknown chemicals that weren't tested? I believe that I don't want that harm to be put onto me. Therefore, animals should be tested to keep the safety of humans

  • If there are no better alternatives, animals should be used for research

    Animal testing is not always ideal, but it remains necessary for research. While it is important to consider the well-being of animals when conducting such research, it must also be recognized the potential knowledge, developments, and discoveries that can be gained. Since such research can lead to new products and medicine that have the potential to improve and save the lives of both humans and animals, it is justified.

  • They saved more people than you know.

    Testing for makeup is a bad thing, but if it's for a vaccine or medicine needed to treat humans, then we should test. That's why it's called a TEST. We need to see if it's safe for humans or not. If we use it straight away without testing it, a whole lot of people would have died. Because of those animals, most of you are alive.

  • Animals Should be Used for Reasearch

    Animal testing is one of the main start points for the invention of penicillin. Drug testing is an important and long process. In a world that is so dependent on the reliability and advancements of medicine to survive and function it would be strange not to test new methods in some way. Would you rather a possibly beneficial drug be tested on humans before animals?

  • Testing on animals saves lives

    Testing of experimental pharmaceuticals and other medicinal products has benefited human society greatly. It allows us to comprehend in more detail the medicines we use daily to treat life-threatening diseases and infections. If we stop using animals for research in the name of "animal welfare", then we are acting extremely irresponsibly and limit our ability to combat disease, ultimately endangering ourselves.

  • Certain cases

    If it was for diseases, than yes, because that can help the lives of humans in the future. But, if you take an animals life away for stupid reasons like makeup, hair products etc... because it makeup isn't helping deaths or anyway important really, so why should it kill an animal?

  • It should be us!

    Why cant we test on sick people instead of animals? They could possibly get better instead of the cruel abuse that we are doing to these poor animals. It should be the humans, not the animals!!! They die every day because of humans. If we care so much to find out whatever chemical works, we should test it on ourselves!!!

  • Animals are important too!

    Just like humans and every other living organism on Earth, they have rights too. I am pretty sure most people might say that humans are more important then animals. But animals have feelings too. How would you feel if someone close to you like a brother or sister was taken off to a lab to be tested on? Well, that is the same way an animal will feel. Just because we can not understand most animals howls, barks, or yells, we can understand their behavior. When they are separated from their mothers or fathers, they are sad. If you watch Disney's documentary "African Cats" you will feel hopelessly sad when those poor little baby cubs are separated from their mother and siblings. They have a the most precious, sad look on their face while crying out looking for their family. Would you like to feel that? Well I am pretty sure no animal wants to feel or ever experience that.

  • Humans should be wiped out of existence.

    Humans just test on animals for the curiosity of it. There is no need to study and kill them. Humans should be tested on instead of animals because the results would be more defined. Humans are already used to test on by the FDA. About 92% of drugs that work on animals are dangerous to humans. If humans never existed, the world would be a better place. No global warming, animal abuse, or any other bad things you can name.

  • What have we become?

    People... OPEN YOUR EYES. Just because we are a "superior" species does not give us the right to harm helpless, defenseless, innocent animals. If we are so superior, then why have we failed to find another way to test? There is no excuse, absolutely no excuse, to harm any living thing, even if it is for the benefit of humans. Think about yourselves in that position: hopeless, scared, sad. Really think about it. What kind of a life is that? It's a life that no innocent living creature should have to go through. WAKE UP and realize that humans are losing their sensitivity, our humaneness.

  • Would you do those things to a human?

    Animals shouldn't be used for testing because it is totally unfair to the animal being tested on. They don't have a choice, or a voice of their own to say no or defend themselves. I know it's to make sure products are safe for humans, but animals think and feel just as much as we do.

  • Monkeys should not be used as laboratory animals!

    Even though Monkeys were crucial for vaccines against hepatitis A and B, they took part in hundreds of early studies of HIV, and in 1961, and two of them were shot into space, monkeys should not be used as laboratory animals because they don't even perform the same functions as individuals and thousands of monkeys are dying, our taxes are being used to kill primates!

  • NO To Animal Research.

    I know that many people argue that animal testing helps save human lives and proves beneficial in extending the medicinal field of research, but animal testing is simply cruel. People say, "how would you like to see a friend die, and know there was nothing you can do? Animal research helps prevent deaths like this."
    Tell me, have you ever thought about the fact that animals have feelings, friends and families? They do, just like us. When they are taken away from their family and friends, they feel sadness and grief, just like us. When they become blind, poisoned or maimed, they feel pain and anger, just like us!
    Besides that obvious issue, there is also the undeniable truth that whatever drugs prove effective on animals, often don't work on humans. They may even cause the condition or illness to grow worse! You wouldn't want that, would you? Animals' bodies and genetics are different from ours, that is a plain and simple truth.
    Medical studies and research can still easily develop without using animals. We are causing unnecessary pain and suffering to animals that have done us no wrongs. This must stop! How can we call ourselves human if we aren't humane?
    If your sister, brother , mother, best friend.. Etc. was taken away to be experimented on, you wouldn't like it, would you? If they were blinded, maimed or poisoned, you would feel angry and sorrowful. Animals feel these emotions too!
    So please, don't support animal research and experimentation. It is cruel.

  • Wasting precious life for greedy human needs.

    Oh! So sticking a mascara wand and chucking a few loads of cleaning powder in an animal's eye is a need?! It's disgusting. Animal's are here for use to eat, for food purposes. Not to waste away in cages for us to "use" them for testing cleaning products or makeup products. Ever heard of organic? Non-animal tested products?

  • How dare us!

    How can we test HARMFUL CHEMICALS on INNOCENT animals and interfere and possibly destroy their life? I realize SOME people love the human race and want us not to suffer. Making others suffer is not the way. This cruel way of finding new medicines and testing cosmetics should be stopped. WHY DONT WE TEST IT ON OTHER HUMANS?
