    Pros
    Many discoveries in modern medicine come from this
    Without it, modern science will slow to a crawl
    If it is outlawed, we are hurting humans(by not doing everything we can to find a cure for diseases) to help animals.

    Cons
    We are hurting and torturing animals
    There are alternatives that could be used that do not violate animal rights
    We do not have the animals consent to test on them.

    Any thoughts would be awesome! Have a great day everyone

    Proverbs 12:10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.


    Yet of course there are innumerable verses placing Man above the animals.. thus, my view:



    Alternatives to animal testing should be used as much as possible. When animal testing is absolutely required, it should be done as humanely as possible. We should not torment animals more than is absolutely necessary.

    How do you know they don't? And how does that impact the value of that life. Why don't we just use the stupid or brain damaged humans? I've met plenty of dogs smarter then a lot of humans I've seen.

Otherwise, it is deeply ridiculous, to suggest slaughtering countless cows, pig and chickens is fine, but sacrificing a few mice to find life-saving cures is somehow not kosher.
    A most logical and concise argument. I agree completely.

    It is not so simple of a thing. Under some conditions, I might support it, others not. You want a black or white answer instead of the various shades of gray.

    Personally, I don't do testing on animals. I only have dogs and they chew up the pencils and paper and never give any answers to the questions.
