Can we test things on animals?

Sharmin Gaziani

I don't think so......

I am against animal testing because it's not right for the animals to be treated this way just for our own research. Animal testing is cruel and inhumane. We have other options for research but we still do our test on animals. While we are wasting government money because animal testing is the most expensive form of research compared to other methods of research.

Tests that pass animals aren't always safe

Animals and humans aren't exactly the same so why test drugs on them when they aren't made like us. We have different cell structures and when you test a drug on a rat that works properly, that doesn't mean it'll work on humans. About 92% of drugs that are safe for animals fail in human clinics because they are too dangerous or don't work. Were just wasting animals lives on our own research when there's not even a high chance of it actually working. In the 1950's about 27,000 people died of heart attacks, and cardiac deaths because of a drug that worked on animals but not on humans.

It's abusive

We treat animals like there here for our needs, but there not. Testing on animals is abusive because people are just putting them on drugs and poisoning for research. Because apparently animals don't have rights and there just here for our personal needs. Oh theirs a deadly disease, bring on the mice. again there not. "Currently, 9 out of 10 experimental drugs FAIL in clinical studies because we cannot accurately predict how they will behave in people based on laboratory and animal studies."

We can do just as good without using animals

Its not like we cant make medical break through without using animals. There hasn't been any research stating that it was essential to use animals as test subjects. "The history of cancer research has been a history of curing cancer in the mouse. We have cured mice of cancer for decades and it simply didn't work for humans." -Dr.Richard Klausner We have other ways to do testing, for example studying cell structures will give better results than doing animal testing.
Would you want to see these adorable animals get tested on against their will. We need to stand up and save the animals from something that is just inhumane and abusive.

Its just not right

The world were living is wasting animals lives over tests when we have other options in 2015. Animals have lives too and scientists out there are just using them to their benefit. We need to make a change because animals are dying out there for no good reason. I think that animals shouldn't just have to be forced into being test subjects and that they don't deserve what's happening to them. Click the button down below and lets start and make a change.
