The Vivisection Scam

November 27, 2010

From Care2
By Desirai Thompson

Every year, millions upon millions of primates, cats, dogs, pigs, rabbits, rodents and a myriad of other living creatures are held against their will and tested on in the most inhumane ways, without any regard to their well-being.

In these hidden laboratories, innocent animals are dissected, suffocated, starved, exposed to radiation, shocked, isolated, blinded, injected with lethal drugs, forced to inhale tobacco smoke and consume alcohol and drugs, given heart attacks, have their limbs severed and are forced to endure countless other tortures to “serve the purpose of science”.

Vivisection is a scam. It is unethical, unnecessary and unreliable. It is used greatly to pad the pockets of these ruthless animal abusers. Dr. Ray Greek, an anti-animal testing physician states, “Animal experimentation is not necessary. It is expensive. It is inaccurate. It is misleading. It consumes limited resources. And further, it is detrimental to the very species it professes to be working to help — humankind.” (Sacred Cows and Golden Geese pg. 223)

Big Pharma, Big Fraud

Up to 90% of test results (pdf below) gained through animal experimentation are literally thrown away because they’re found to be inapplicable to humans.  88% of doctors agree this practice is often misleading due to anatomical and physiological differences between species. Had animal test results been heeded, aspirin, penicillin, insulin and vital cancer treatments would never have been made accessible to the public.

Charles Mayo, physician and founder of the prestigious Mayo Clinic was quoted as saying, “I know of no achievement through vivisection, no scientific discovery that could not have been obtained without such barbarism and cruelty. The whole thing is evil.” (New York Daily News Mar. 13, 1961)

Even if testing on animals did yield consistent, relevant results, nothing justifies the absolutely savage abuse these animals endure at the hands of unfeeling humans. Don’t support animal exploitation in any form, for any purpose. Buy 100% cruelty-free products.

    These experiments are cruel, disgusting, cowardly for starters.. If all these so-called “PROFFESSIOALS” doing these terrible acts, “FOR SCIENCE”, then, if this is the only sick sciences they know, then they definately have spent alot of money on their education that isn’t worth the outcome.. Anyone who can do this, not blink, or be effected doesn’t deserve to be called, “Doctor”, for anything in human/animal worlds.. People such as this only have deep pockets.. Well, morons, good for you.. Your family must be sooooooo proud.. I’m not..

    After many years of torture, they cure cancer in rats (created in labs) : since we are not rats this should be enough for people to open their eyes. Visection is WRONG, morally and scientifically. Period.
