It is ok for as long as human will benefit from the studies later on.

It depends how you characterize defended."Moral" activity has been characterized as something that expands the general prosperity of the mankind, and"untrustworthy" activity diminishes it. Henceforth, if creature testing gives new medicines to the torment, at that point it is defended.

The intention set for the testing is for human benefit, for medical advancement and discoveries etc. So yes, it is justified.

Of course, it is. Sooner or later, those discoveries would be a huge help for humans.

Poisoning, shocking, burning, and killing animals is all in a day’s work. If these acts were committed outside lab, they would be felonies. Animals suffer and die every day in laboratories with no protection from cruelty.

It’s unethical to sentence 100 million thinking, feeling animals to life in a cage and intentionally cause them pain, loneliness, and fear.

Animal experiments prolong the suffering of people waiting for effective cures by misleading experimenters and wasting precious money, time, and resources that could have been spent on human-relevant research.

Forward-thinking scientists have developed humane, modern, and effective non-animal research methods, including human-based microdosing, in vitro technology, human-patient simulators, and sophisticated computer modeling, that are cheaper, faster, and more accurate than animal tests.

The benefits derived from the ethical, humane use of laboratory animals for biomedical research are huge. Nearly every major medical breakthrough in the last 100 years has been achieved by research with animals.

It will benefit the human race in the long run so I don't see why it should be stopped. It's always been that way so if it works, why change it?

We are harming animals for the sake of testing but it would be worse to try it on people right away. I think animal testing is pretty much justified.

These animals are heroes. Their contribution to discovering life-saving advancements in medicine and science for both pets and humans is enormous.

Cures have been discovered because of these animals. I think we should look at the big picture and see that they have helped more people.

The world doesn’t need another eyeliner, hand soap, food ingredient, drug for erectile dysfunction, or pesticide so badly that it should come at the expense of animals’ lives. It's so unnecessary.

It is for the greater good so that should be understandable. I think it's okay to test on animals if it will benefit us.

Without animal research, millions of dogs, cats, birds, and farm animals would be dead from diseases. It's the only way for us to see if these drugs are effective or not.

I don't like animal testing. I'm sure science can find other ways to test their drugs.

If we didn't experiment on animals, where would we do it? We need to know the effectivity of these drugs. We don't really have a choice but to do animal testing.

Research with animals has led to vaccinations against smallpox, measles, mumps, diphtheria, and tetanus; development of anesthesia, antibiotics, and insulin just to name a few. It's very beneficial for all of us.

I find animal testing cruel and inhumane. These animals don't need to be hurt and injected with diseases because there are a lot of failed experiments.
