Vegan Nugget #16: Animal Testing Part One: Is It Effective & Does It Save Lives?
Most people can agree that animal testing (vivisection) is horrific. And most people can get behind banning animal testing of things like cosmetics.
However, when it comes to potentially live-saving medicine, the line of acceptable evil begins to blur for many people.
So is animal testing scientifically viable? Can research on animals save human lives? If so, then vivisection would only be opposable on moral and ethical grounds…not scientific ones.
As you will see, however, animal testing is NOT effective science and actually HARMS humans. Why does it continue? That will be addressed in a future nugget…stay tuned!
