This is a difficult topic for me and something I have not made up my mind on yet. Deep down I feel bad for the animals that are tested on. I also had an aunt who died from cancer recently and if a cure for cancer can be found by using animals, than I can understand.
However, I really wish there was another way to find cures and test meds. Maybe one day medicine will advance enough to where live animals will not have to be used.

I also agree with helwa and stephen, the animals should still be treated humanely and not have to die while suffering.

I am totally against animals being used for cosmetics and other unnecessary products that are not needed for survival. Everytime botox is used on a person, it is tested on an animal in order to get the right amount for each treatment and these animals suffer a horrible death.

I had no idea of this. That's just sickening.

In an ideal world, yes. However, most all things have to be tested to be manufactured.

I do use cosmetics that are not animal tested (though I use very few anyway!).

The medical world is, as most of you have already said, where it gets confusing. It is important to find cures for many ailments. As someone else said, my genetics are bombarded with diabetes and heart disease. With out testing, there would be little advancement in these fields.

I also agree with Stephen in that, I would like to see the animals treated as humanly as is possible.

I often think that the people who are against all animal testing for any reason must be healthy and know only healthy people.
I am against animal testing for silly stuff like cosmetics.
However, animal testing is sometimes necessary for medical purposes.
My 65 year old dad unexpectedly died on September 23rd, 2006 from cardiac arrest. My heart breaks everyday from missing him. He was my best friend. If animal testing could let him still be here with me, then I am ok with it.

As much as I hate animal testing, look at what it has gotten us. Without it, we wouldn't have been able to cure any diseases and a ton of people would have died. Even though those animals have gone through countless things, would you rather your baby or your brother or your sister or you parent to be tested on instead? How about your friend? We picked animals (even though we are animals) because we have no special links, meaning love, like we do family or friends.

i was speaking about beauty products and food ... not medicine lol

in my opinion, beauty products are not a god given right, they are a a luxury as well as processed and manufactured foods.

if a beauty product has some ingredient in it that needs to be tested on an animal, chances are it should just not be used at all.


the beauty products i use arnet tested on animals at all and they work amazingly well, better than those that are. lol

and as for medicine thats the only thing i can accept animal testing for, although to be honest a pharacuetical company could care less about the outcome of such tests, they give it to us anyway then eat the lawsuit a decade later.

so those animals suffered for nothing as well as the humans who took the meds.
