i know you know about animal testing whether it be dogs, cats, monkeys, rats/mice, etc...but do you approve of it? some prefer it to be that way since it's much better to test it on animals rather than humans...do you think they are right? as for me, i don't like tests being done to animals, they've got rights also and they are still creature need to be taken cared of. what do you say?

Well, I would definitely prefer new products and medicines to be tested on animals before they let humans use them. I know some tests make them suffer and I don't like cruelty towards animals, but I would still put human needs before animal needs. So, yeah, I approve of animal testing.

As far as I am concerned, animals are our equals, and they should be treated the way we treat other humans! They have feelings and they are living things too. We should be testing products on ANY living thing. It's wrong and I for one do not support companies who do it. There is no reason they should be used for testing or for any human benefit except companionship! Humans or taking over this planet with disregard to the other living things who live here too and deserve to live their lives in peace. I think we should take the people who do testing on animals, lock tham up in a lab and run tests on them and see how they like it...maybe that will cause some changes!

Well, testing on animals isn't the nicest thing in the world. But on the other hand, the tests they are doing is medical research to make human life better. How else will they come up with a cure for cancer? They need to make sure it is safe before they give it to humans. Unfortuneatly animals are there for the testing.
