You've been bitten by a venomous snake. You are starting too feel awfully awfully unwell. Do you agree to be treated with anti-venom?, knowing that it was made by injecting venom into a farm animal commonly used for food, and then harvesting the animal's blood.

Of course, my life and health comes before anything, especially since the anti venom has already been made, it sucks maybe there should be a better way, but for now if there's all there is then ya.

I am a vegan. Doesn't mean I'm going to turn down life-saving medical treatment, though.

don't take my life away, don't take my life away.

Yeah, this is where I would invoke the "as far as possible and practicable" clause. It would be unfortunate, but I do value my own life quite highly.

I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)

This. I wouldn't even stop to think about it, the answer would automatically be yes.

I'd assume there are no other options other than a horrible death? If that's the case I think everyone would say yes.

Either antivenom or antivenin are correct.
