Default Animal Testing

Do you agree with testing experiments on guinea pigs and such? Do you believe that it's okay, because they are only animals, and not as intelligent as us? There have been a lot of issues about this, some including PETA and people/companies/places like that. What do you think?

No cursing please? Unless you absolutely HAVE to.

A few of my friends did some research on this, and we found that animal testing has very little scientific value because animal anatomy is too different from humans'. And they're not "just animals." In fact, humans are nothing but "over-evolved apes" and we don't have the right to mistreat other creatures.

Yes! I completely agree with you. Also, a lot of experiments damage the animal for life, then they are put to sleep. So are they saying: Yeah, we'll kill an animal, it's not worth anything,- but they'll make a metal claw that senses brain waves for a man who was drunk and was paralyzed in a driving accident?

Okay lets say there was a huge virus going around and it was killing everyone who got it, I would think it would be okay to, give a bunch of apes the virus. And then test a bunch of cures for the virus, and which ever apes are still alive at the end, those cures will go to human testing.

I don't like animal testing, to be honest. >_>

It helps humans in the long run. But it also hurts animals, too. However, humans need to do whatever is necessary to survive. "Survival of the fittest" could be applied on this topic.

No! That's like killing humans too, just a guess and check? oh it's dead, let's kill another animal.

I think it's unnecessary and wrong. Yes, they need to know the effects of whatever it is, but what makes animals inferior to us? The inability to speak? Small children aren't as evolved as grown people, and you wouldn't test on a baby, would you?

I agree, from the tip of my head to the bottom of my toes.

No, I wouldn't test it on a baby, but I would on a ape because, I value a human life more then a apes.
