I’m generally against animal testing, but I’m not exactly in possession of all the facts. There is so much propaganda on both sides, as far as I can see.
Is it justified? Are there humane alternatives? I’ve noticed that some people seem to think that testing on human prisoners, rapists and murderers for example, would be a solution. I strongly disagree with this. It would be bad to infringe upon the human rights of even the “worst” humans. We should treat people with mercy, whatever they may have done. It would be an ethical step backwards and bad for our society as a whole.
All opinions are welcome in this thread. I’m curious to see what other people think.
