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.

No, because each animal has a right to live and killing one of them could drastically affect the food chain and the biodiversity.

I believe that biotechnology should be the first option, but if necessary animals could be used.

No. Aside from the ethical ramifications, the psychological between animals, while typically negligible, can sometimes be significantly incompatible as far as the data may show
