Are you for or against animal testing ?

Personally I think they should ban animal testing because doing all these experiments is really unfair on them and could have nasty side effects which could harm them. I would never protest for anything like this to be banned, i just dissaprove of it.

What are your views ?

strongly against. if it is so important to humans why not pay some people to act as test persons?

Against.

Especially when its for cosmetics, its not ok to have a zillion cats and dogs, rabbits and rats suffer just because some people want to wear fancy things.

I have to agree. If its for the sake of lives then so be it but beauty is vanity and animals shouldn't die for sport of vanity.

I want to say yes since it does not put lives at risk, but I want to say no since animals are cuddly. Mice I relly do not care about since a million of them die a day, what will 20 more make? Cats and Dogs, no they can feel pain and express it.

I'd say test stuff on death row inmates, they save the state money and some cats and dogs.

I like that idea. Who would really be for animal testing, unless it was strays that were going to be euthanized anyway. But on mice and rabbits I wouldn't care. Testing on monkeys are pushing it.

I'm on the fence. It's a horrible thing, yes, but I also feel it's necessary (obviously not for things like cosmetics, as MoP mentioned). Unless all of you who are against it want to volunteer to be tested on, of course. Then we could surely do away with animal testing.

Against, they should be tested on people. If they are trying to make a workable cure, why not test it on those who are actually sick? I'm sure there would be millions who would be welcomed testies.

Hundreds of people die every day whats 20 or 30 more? Rat's still feel pain like you and me, there suffering brings you your hand cream/shampoo.

Aginst testing on animals they feel pain and the trils are painful for them why should they suffer for our pleasure?

Inmates still have rights you can't just slather them in lotion too see if it will hurt you.
