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!

      I completely agree; even if it did selfishly benefit humans, it would still be wrong and ineffective: you cannot benefit a life by taking others. Thank you, dearest Lo.

        something so morally wrong can’t be scientifically right. It’s animal abuse

          VERY well-said, that should be a quote on a bumper sticker. Thanks, hon, I wholeheartedly agree.

    Animal experiments harm people as well as animals. Experimenting on animals to find out how a human body works is unbelievably stupid!
