An Argument Against the Inhumanity of Animal Testing
A description of the experiments done on animals and reasons why this is unethical.
“Each year millions of animals are killed due to animal laboratory testing. We take for granted that our medicine, shampoos, soaps, and cosmetics will not poison or blind us, cause our hair to fall out, or skin to blister. The rats, rabbits, dogs, and other animals, however, do have to undergo these symptoms. Experimenting on animals is very popular in medical labs where they are trying out new drugs. Many people feel that animal testing is necessary to ensure safe medicines, cosmetics, and other products. Most people believe that a lab animal would have the same reaction that a human would have to a chemical; however, this is where people are wrong.”
