On the contrary, vivisection advocates on VB have sometimes gladly expressed their views, going so far as to enthusiastically proclaim how they would sacrifice their own companion animals to save humans.

I think it should be banned. I think it's a bit cruel and inhumane to force an animal to be a testing subject against its will.

If you want something to be tested so bad, there are clinical trials where people can be tested on. You want a cure for cancer? Volunteer for testing different methods of treatment that are undergoing research and study.

Want to know if the lipstick really stays on for 8 hours? Volunteer to test it yourself.

It doesn't make any sense that we test our things that we are going to use on animals that will never have any use for these things. On top of that, we do it against their will. At least people can consent to the testing.

Exactly, people who are for vivisection say things like "if it saves humans lives it's worth the sacrafice". Well that's pretty easy to say when you're not the one doing the sacraficing. Anyone can say it's worth the sacrafice when it's not you that has to give up anything, when we force others to make the "sacrafice".

Absolutely. I always wavered on this point until I watched the movie Earthlings. When you actually see what goes on in laboratories and the unfathomable suffering these animals go through, it is just shocking. Kind of like watching Meet Your Meat and the like... There are things that NO animal of any species should ever have to go through.

Yes.

Animal testing is completely unnecessary in most cases and I believe that pharmaceutical and cosmetics companies use it because it's cheaper and easier than testing on humans.

I don't need or want animal tested H&BA products, and there are plenty of people with various health conditions who would gladly volunteer for clinical trials. I have severe asthma and have volunteered for such trials.
