Vegan Nugget #17: Animal Testing Part Two: Why the F*ck Are We Still Doing It?

For all of you who keep saying you can’t watch the videos because they’re too graphic, this video has “cuteness relief” throughout so you can learn about a serious topic without being traumatized.  You’re welcome.

In the last nugget i introduced the topic of animal testing and talked about the scientific inefficacy of it.

We addressed how non-animal tests are generally more reliable, less costly, and always more humane. So…why the F**K are we still testing on animals?

Well here are the three main reasons:

1. Momentum, meaning familiarity or “it’s what we’ve always done”
2. Money
3. For companies to cover their asses

Watch the vid for more information!

Some RESOURCES:
ADAPTT.org
Video on the finding from the raid of UPenn’s head trauma lab
Infographic on taxpayer money funding animal testing

too afraid to embrace a new
and positive role.
those who know they are wrong.
continue to dig a deeper hole.
trying to justify what
they themselves no longer
believe…
in the end it is only themselves
they deceive!!

this is the ONLY way that it should be!!!!

    “Why the fuck are we still doing this?” That is an excellent question. The only reason I can think of is that there are assholes walking around disguised as humans.

    Can you imagine with this Ebola outbreak how many primates and other animals will be sacrified in uselss tests??? We all know how many primates have died in completely useless HIV /AIDS experiments without finding a solution.

      They will always use animals to “justify” their enormous and tax-funded dollars. I heard that a survivor of ebola was allowing his blood to help one of the doctors – why not just do that and leave the animals alone?!? Thanks, Ann.

    Hi Stacey. I don’t think I watched the right video – it was good, but it wasn’t about animal testing. This happened to me on another blog and it was because the intended video was in a set on Youtube and the link went to the first in the set rather than the one that the blogger had just watched. Which video should I have watched?

      I finally got it, thank you so much, Sarah! I didn’t even notice that, but you are correct – I kept getting the first in the playlist, like, three times when I just tried to correct the video. When you search by title name, though, it defaults to the actual video and not the playlist. Thank you so much for letting me know, the video is now correct.

            Oh, I thought it might be you. 😦 It would be nice to have a face to go with the name. 😉
            I’ve just watched the video and it was great. I’ve subscribed to her channel.

    Some people are Christians, some are Muslims, some are Jews etc Then there are vivisectors: monsters that worship a god named money. In its unholy name they torture and kill. If you read their studies, lab animals are “sacrificed” .
    This is my answer to that question

    These scientists have no con-science. They are financially rewarded by big companies to be psychopaths. This is the 21st century – there are alternatives!!!!
