According to the People For The Ethical Treatment of Animal or PETA and to quote: "Each year, more than 100 million animals—including mice, rats, frogs, dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, monkeys, fish, and birds—are killed in U.S. laboratories for biology lessons, medical training, curiosity-driven experimentation, and chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics testing." That statement above does not include the number of animals killed and used in scientific and medical research and experiments in other parts of the world. Are you in favor of using animal in scientific and medical research and experiments? Is it possible to conduct scientific or medical research and experiments without using any animals?

There is never an excuse to experiment on animals. That is just plain cruelty Honestly if it came to I had a disease, and they had to research animals to find a cure I would say no thanks let the animal live out its life free of cruelty

I'm neutral for the most part. I don't mind the mice and rats testing as they are the source of many diseases, so experimenting on them, no, I don't mind. Now using animals which make good pets, yes, I have a problem with that. If there was another way to find the cures we need for the diseases common to mankind, I would be in favor of that.
