dont test things on animals they are living things like we are. they have a life and they need to live their life.

 @SomberCapitalistGreenfrom Minnesota disagreed…2wks2W

Many life-saving treatments and vaccines, such as the polio vaccine, have been developed thanks to animal testing.

Let's take the case of insulin, for example. Before the discovery of insulin, diabetes was a fatal disease. Dogs played a crucial role in the discovery and development of insulin in the early 20th century. Without animal testing, we wouldn't have this life-saving treatment for diabetes that benefits millions of humans today.

Whilst I understand and deeply respect your point, I ask you to consider this: If not animals, then what alternative do you propose to ensure the safety and effectiveness of new medical treatments and vaccines?

 @9BC2YCK from Illinois agreed…6mos6MO

It is such a cruel practice to test our products on animals. Even Hitler banned it.

 @9F8TGH4 from Wisconsin agreed…2wks2W

We already use animals for so many things in our lives: food, clothing, furniture, decoration, even just hunting for fun. We don't need to be testing makeup products on monkeys who aren't going to wear makeup. It's inhumane and cruel and definately should be terminated.


These disease or health problems that have been founded using animal testing, some examples are the polio vaccine, or insulin for diabetes.

i dont think animal testing is right. you should not use animals to test products on them. its not right they are living things.

 @9FF9ZQ9 disagreed…1wk1W

That animals are living they should not be tested for an exprirement that could go wrong and end with the animals dead. We need animals and if they were to go extinct, we would go extinct

 @9FH9V3LPeace and Freedomfrom Vermont agreed…6 days6D

Animal testing is only acceptable in extreme situations like medicine but not in any other situation. At this point of human advance there should be other ways to make sure products going for human are safe and if the companies do not have enough money to this then there shoud not have the company

 @9F8TGH4 from Wisconsin disagreed…2wks2W

Animals are helpless when it comes to humans. Even just us being in their habitat freaks them out, imagine what it's like to be taken to a lab against your will and be tortured so we can know if it'll work on humans. If you're going to test human products, test them on an actual human, not a defenseless animal.

 @9F8LR79 from Illinois disagreed…2wks2W

animals can't say no clearly it's just messed up for them to on things that can't do anything abt it

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...5yrs5Y

Yes, but not for cosmetics


Animals are living beings. If we wouldn't test it on a human why would we test it on another living soul?

 @9FMLZRNDemocrat from Indiana disagreed…10hrs10H

Animals are beings of nature, just as we are and just as we have been since the beginning of time. You wouldn’t want to see your family pet be abused and poked and prodded with needles, so why are these other animals any different? Why shouldn’t we practice on other humans, wouldn’t that show how makeup and devices and other things work on human skin or how well they work with humans better than animals?


Animals are family to us and we need them to continue growing as a race, so why would we test things on them, and not on ourselves.

 @9FLRDWHWomen’s Equality from Indiana disagreed…1 day1D

The harmful use of animals in experiments is not only cruel but also often ineffective. Animals do not naturally get the diseases that humans do. Such as types of heart disease, many types of cancer, HIV, Parkinson’s disease or schizophrenia. Signs of these diseases are artificially induced in animals in laboratories in an attempt to mock the human disease. These experiments belittle the human conditions which are affected by wide ranges of variables. (Ex: genetics and psychological issues)

 @8M2N46D from Missouri answered…3yrs3Y

No, not for cosmetics. Drugs should only be tested on animals if it is believed that the drug could improve the animal's health.

 @89S67K7Independent from Kansas answered…3yrs3Y

No, use inmates that are serving life or death sentences and offer incentives for other inmates to volunteer.

 @8PW2KJP  from Louisiana answered…3yrs3Y

Yes Yes, but not for cosmetics

Yes, animal testing is necessary for understanding the safety and proper dosages of new medicines and treatments. It would be dangerous and extremely unethical for scientists to test drugs on humans before making sure they are safe. Even though the testing might be harmful to the tested animal, I believe its sacrifice advances developments on medicine that could save millions of lives, both human and not.

 @99GH9PQfrom Maine disagreed…7mos7MO

Easy for you to say; you're not the one being sacrificed. If human lives are at stake then test on humans. You'll get better results and the medical industries will be forced to rethink and reduce their exploitative methods. In any event animals don't belong to us to do as we please.

No, not for cosmetics. Drugs should only be tested on animals if it is truly believed that the drug could improve the animal's health.

 @983Y744 from Florida answered…10mos10MO

 @9DMBKZL  from Georgia answered…1mo1MO

Yes, but not for cosmetics and must be under regulations to keep the research humane and ethical. If the research facilities cannot keep within standards the research must be shut down.

 @9DDDH6X from Indiana answered…1mo1MO

Yes, but should be held to a high standard in caring for them and no cruelty

 @9D3RPBQfrom Guam answered…2mos2MO

No animal testing is inaccurate and dangerous not to mention unethical to animals.

No, theybshould test them on themselves, or stick to holistic medicine.

Yes, but while also heavily regulating testing conditions and exploring alternative ways to test
