If it's for MEDICAL research, meaning we're trying to find a cure for certain diseases or to improve on present cures, I think it's okay to use animals, but the tests should be done as humanely as possible. If however, the research is for something as frivolous as cosmetics, I think animal tests are not warranted.

I'm with you here. I'm totally against it if it isn't absolutely necessary, which I think medical research is.
