Should there be a law against using animals for medical and cosmetic testing?

  • The stuff might work differently on animals

    Killing innocent animals for thing that might not have an affect on humans. Make up can kill animals and have no affect on humans because animals have a different immune system then us . This is a very serious subject and needs to be brought up as a more serious matter

  • There should be a law against using animals for medical and cosmetic testing?

    I think that there should be a law because humans shouldn't be testing animals for their pleasure just because they want cosmetics and makeup. Those animals are innocent creatures who have the right to live free and in the wild. Just because people want to have cures for themselves, doesn't mean that poor animals should be killed and tortured for it.

  • Scientists have found other ways to test

    Animals are not needed anymore to be tested on scientists have found a way to test products without harming animals. Studies show that 92% of the time drugs that passed on animals failed on humans knowing that risk why would you put an animals life at risk for new eyeliner? Does it even make sense? Animals that are not used in animal testing are abused or harmed so either way the animals are getting hurt for no cause. At least 500 million animals suffer in labs throughout the United States. 75 million "excess" mice, alone, are destroyed without even being used by researchers per year.... Every day, primates, dogs,cats, mice,rats, and other animals suffer in animal testing labs," according to the Massachusetts Animal Rights Coalition and according to the Humane Society registration of a single pesticide requires more than 50 experiments and the use of as many as 12, 000 animals.

  • Animals Shouldn't Be Tested On

    The medical and cosmetic industries shouldn't use animals to test their products. In reality, such testing is unethical and can harm animals in various ways. Lab animals typically aren't treated that well, and they'll spend most of their lives undergoing test after test. Another solution needs to be found to fix this wrong.

  • There should be a law against using animals for medical and cosmetic testing.

    There should be a law against using animals for medical and cosmetic testing. They use and sacrifice the animals that they use in these tests everyday just so they can see if they have a reaction to the product that they are creating. They put the animal through torture before discarding it.

  • Yes, especially for cosmetic testing.

    Cosmetic testing subjects animals to pain and suffering for no reason other than appearance and pride. That should be illegal. Medical testing should usually be banned unless there is no other option. It should not be done for superficial reasons like it being cheaper or more convenient than other options.

  • HELL NO how is this ok

    I don't understand why people want to do this to animals this is a cruel idea and also unfair for the animals 100 million animals die every year because of this and not ok. I think that animals are people too and if we don't do these tests on ourselves than what makes it ok to do this to the poor innocent animals. GRRRRRRR

  • Animals are cute!

    They are small and helpless and they can't do anything to defend themselves. We should acknowledge that and let them be free instead of making them miserable. It's just not the nice and friendly thing to do! Imagine if you were one of those poor, poor, little creatures! No way!

  • We need a law to ban this cruelty!

    Animals have lives, and feelings, and minds like ours. We weren't put here on Earth to destroy innocent animals who did nothing to us to make us treat them that way. They get thrown in a cage for their entire life, to live cooped up in misery and loneliness. Animal testing is just wrong, and it's not even reliable! Scientists have found new ways to test products other than killing our poor animals. 92 out of 100 tests that passed on animals will fail on humans. And there are so many perfumes, hand soaps, and makeup products out there, do we really have to kill another animal to make more? What's more, the regulations that say how many times an animal can be used, how much pain can be caused to the animal without using drugs, etc. excludes mice, rats, and birds, which is about 95% of the animals tested on in the U.S., so the scientists testing the animal can basically do whatever they want to it. And over 100 million animals are killed each year for animal testing.

    Sorry about my little rant there, this is a touchy subject for me:)

  • Animal testing should be banned!!!

    When testing on animals you can hurt them or even kill them. Scientists should test the products on what are be going to use it. That would mean you test on people. Some people would let you test on them because they are so against it. Animals have just the same right as we do to live in this world.

  • The stuff might work differently on animals

    Killing innocent animals for thing that might not have an affect on humans. Make up can kill animals and have no affect on humans because animals have a different immune system then us . This is a very serious subject and needs to be brought up as a more serious matter

  • It is very helpful

    If you don't want animals to be tested on, do you want to be?
    Animal is very helpful to be tested on because it is a evidence that the product is safe to use, so no one will be the next tester, so I think animal should be tested on.

  • We need to test on animals first.

    Animal testing is a required part of any medical or chemical (aka cosmetic) product research life cycle. While I do think that these companies can do a lot more with regard to relying on computer models and other simulations, there comes a point where you have to test that product on a living creature. I'd rather it be an animal than an actual human at first.

  • No. I do not believe that there should be a law against using animals for medical and cosmetic testing.

    No. I do not believe that there should be a law against using animals for medical and cosmetic testing, because testing products on animals first is an affective, and needed way to ensure the safety of humans. I can understand how people may see it the other way, but is necessary. In the same way we eat animals to live. This is no different.

  • No Laws Against All Animal Testing

    No, there should not be a law against using animals for medical and cosmetic testing because if the testing were not performed on animals, then it would be performed on humans. While animals do have rights and value, humans as sapient beings have even more value and even more rights.

  • Medical testing on animals is needed to save lives.

    While there is no good reason for cosmetic testing, medical testing on animals is needed to help save lives. Various medicines and cures were discovered using testing on animals and many lives have been saved due to it. Without animal testing medical research would come to a near end. Many more lives can be saves by what we learn with it.

  • Horrible horrific h###

    I say yes because, many people may need all this makeup and crap but if u test it on animals OMG NO PEOPLE do u think are lives are worth more than theres!??! NO god created us all EQUAL no matter whats size shape, breed, or form! And what also even when they DEFIANTLY KNOW it WORKS they STILL continue to test on the animals! They grow human ears on rats, they even broke a rats spine and put in are cells from birth into it to see if it would self regenerate! Theres a certain point to how far you can go PEOPLE GET IT IN YOUR THICK SKULLS ALREADY! How would U like it if U were TESTED on for UR WHOLE LIFE?!? Never able to see your family or roam in the wild and enjoying your life! This has gone to far and somebody NEEDS to STOP it!

  • Animal Testing Saves Lives

    I really don't think that Animal Testing is that bad. Yes animals will die for this reason or go blind but would we rather this be on a human. Besides if we tested on a human and they died the whole world would be frantic so doing it on an animal is safer really!

  • Animal Testing saves lives.

    The testing of medication on animals before humans has saved countless lives. If doctors had gone straight to human testings people who suffered from illness might be dead instead of cured. Scientists have proven that medication is safer and more reliable for humans if its been tested on animals beforehand. Finally, any human that eats meat but protests medical animal testing is being hypocritical. Animal testing for medical research and eating meat a.K.A. Animals have the same purpose; to keep us alive and healthy.

  • We need to do this to save our lives

    I don't think there should be a law against using animals to test medication. Yes to cosmic testing because that's unnecessary. If we can't test things on animals we would have to test them on ourselves. We are kind of doing this for the same reasons we eat animals.So that we can survive. Since we have to do this we should only use old animals. Its needed to assure that it would be safe to use on a person.-shauna
