I think that animal testing is ok because it saves a lot of peoples lives and we can use lots of different products because of it. In addition the animals aren't mistreated .They have stuff to play with and they're given pain killers so I don't understand why so many people think it's wrong. I mean I adore animals and I think that it's ok.
Do you want to put our child, a loved one, or yourself on a surgery bed and give them to a doctor who has only practiced surgery type demonstrations on only foam or on a computerized program? I would trust a doctor who has had practice on actual tissue and cadavers aren't always available. The animals they test on have no use otherwise. Not all of them were wanted as pets and would have been killed in nature in a more violent way. Animal deaths in the wide are more vicious and violent than in a lab. Animal testing should be done, but it should be done the right way where there is minimal to no pain to the animal and a successful cure or medicine is created
Animal testing is beneficial for a multitude of reasons but the main reason is if we got rid of animal testing who would we test the products on. We cannot test on humans because it's inhuman and a form of torture. This subject itself is a double edged sword. We cannot please the public with testing on animals or humans.
What if a virus got out of the lab. If it was tested on humans it would have figured out how to kill while if tested on animals it needs to figure out how the human body works. So yea i think that it is right in a lot of ways
We humans can think and invent using our brains and resources around us. Animals are not as self aware as we are. Testing on animals is so much better than testing on humans. Would you rather sacrifice the life of one rat, or 100 humans?
Most animals don't even die from the tests, and are looked after and treated kindly. Chimps have ropes and things to play with, and dogs are walked regularly.
Does this not seem fair? Animals are treated so kindly when they are test subjects, and save peoples lives. It would be foolish to stop testing on them because some people 'think' they are treated with cruelty.
The animals you see in videos arent actually what it's like in reality animals are given toys to play with, dogs are walked regularly. Lots of people think this is animal cruelty but in fact it actually isn't. It can also help cure deadly diseases too and save many peoples lives
Animal testing isn't only benificial for the human himself also for other animals beacause it also helps cure diseases that animals have which are sometimes similair to the diseases of humand for example: asthma
that is why animal testing is a good thing and what would you choose your child being tested on or your pet, i think its pretty obvious.
Although the use of animals for such scientific purposes is disheartening, will we humans not do anything to improve our quality of life? In response to the question that will inevitably come up, (What about it's feelings?) would the gift of a home, however painful, be better than death or would the idea of not existing be better for the animal?
If their was no animal testing, how would we live? 95% of animals used in testing are mice and rats. The medicine that we make has the same effect on a rodent as the effect on a human being. Also most rodents don't die, so please keep animal testing going!
Animal testing is vital to the progress of public health and medical research, so it is indeed a good thing. Without animal testing, we'd have to test on humans, which is an inhumane and horrific thing to do. Animal testing is just fine, and we need to embrace it, not fight against it.
Saying that it is ok to kill animals purely based on the fact that it will save human lives is counter productive. For one thing you kill more than you save and another what gives us a right to say humans are more important than any other species on the planet. We all breath, we all live, and we all FEEL. This justification would be in the same catergory as sexism or racism, because we try to generalize and try put certain species/genders/races in front of others.
When will a person have to use a medicine that an animal has to? Never! Because animals are different. I can't believe people are actually confident with cures tested on animals, just because it is tested on animals that means it will work on humans?! Absolutely in human and wrong
Experimentors are willing to pay people a lot to be tested on in place of animals. Well why would anyone want to be tested on? Because they are in need of money, example: the homeless. If more people would be tested on in place of animals, there'd be less poverty, less animal suffering, and more accurate results.
We have humans that can agree to let doctors and scientists test on them, why do we need to test our medicine or cosmetics on unwilling animals, that are clearly in pain because of the cruel methods these people use? Besides, why not test them in a laboratory?
It's Unnecessary, and cruel.
Imagine somebody opening up your head and taking DNA, how would you feel? Wouldn't it feel painful? The world has basically been taken over by us, humans. So now, we think we need the most space and we have rights over animals. They are also living beings so they can't be used by other beings.
For many years before the car was invented horses and other animals helped us get around. They also helped us plow our fields and produce the food we eat. In return, we pour acid into their eyes, cut open their heads, and gas them. That is no way to treat those who helped us when we had nothing.
Animals suffer, over one million animals are burnt, crippled, poisoned and abused every year. How would you like to suffer? Animals testing is wasteful as scientists have already created humane, modern and effective non animal research methods, that are cheaper and more accurate than animal tests. The world doesnt need another eyeliner or soap that should come of expense of an animal life
Animal testing is horrendous..Lives cannot be taken to save other lives..No researcher has the right to take an animal life if he cannot give life..And it is not justified just by saying that it is for human progress and safety.Killing to give life.Is absurd.Even though it is an animal life.
Animals won't nothing to do with the cosmetic craze. Do humans need a new shampoo so bad an innocent life should be killed? Less than 5% of tests done on animals actually work on humans. We are not the same. Our brains and lives are different. Would you kill a child for the sake of a new lipstick?
Scientists/experimenters pay people for being experimented on. And not just a little money, a lot. There are a lot of people that don't have any money and will do whatever they can to get money. If more people took the place of animals in experiments, then there will be less poverty and less animal suffering.
