Completely on point.

Now this is a position I can respect. It says, "I don't want my loved one to suffer (and therefore I don't want to suffer from seeing them suffer), so I support 'X'" It comes from a state of emotion, true, but it imposes no moral will on anyone else. It merely presents a want or need that exists within the individual who is stating it. It says, "I think this would be good for me," without presupposing or making judgements on what might be good for anyone or anything else.

Well done sir. It took 16 pages to get to this :)

I'm pretty sure no-one here is advocating animal testing for non-essentials (I think Android Bishop is def coming from a biopharma angle...correct me if I'm wrong).

We know it's bad but for some things in life, the end justifies the means.

That's why the books I pointed out are pertinent, they question whether or no animal experimentation has helped human medical science.

If there is a chance that animal testing could help a terminal patient, then there is room for discussion.

If there is a chance that animal testing could delay or hinder treatment for that same patient, is there no room for discussion?

Maybe quit bashing the book before you crack the cover?

My father has had MS for 15 years, and i have genetic tendency to have it so do I qualify? because i still dont believe in animal testing.

You can object to animal testing if you hide his meds, and sabotage his efforts to get to appointments with his consultant.

I guess you missed this bit:

Let's test some slugs to cure your retardation, all in favour say Aiiiii!


*edited to make sure 'above all else' reaaaaallllllly stood out, he is severely retarded after all*

Great post, but this is where I'm going to disagree with you. There is always talk of shifting government funded research away from experiments that don't have any immediate application to ones that are targeted with some specific application in mind, and the research community has to constantly remind people that we NEVER KNOW what will be useful later down the line, especially in biology. A majority of the applied research we see all comes from information gleaned from experiments that were performed just cause. First comes the information foundation and then comes the house. Furthermore, it isnt just medicine that the technology of life can help us with. It has allowed us to do all sorts of things for agriculture, industrial applications, environmental applications, and who knows what else.

The point is that we don't have an idea of what a lot of these components do or how we can work with them unless we test them, and that usually means in the organism from which they came. From there one has added another potential tool for other scientists to use in case they come up an idea of what it can be useful for. This is where most of our knowledge and applied research comes from, its rare for someone to come up with an experiment and just "know" what everything is going to do and how its going to benefit us. Its all built from bricks of information gleaned from other experiments that were designed simply to find out what their "brick" was and how it works.

Sorry, I don't think that you have the right to do 'X' to an animal just to see what happens.

History has proven that the 'X' can be remarkably perverse.

And BTW - animal testing is not the only way to learn about animals or their cells, otherwise we would never have known about humans.

Da Vinci was mentioned earlier, he was a vegetarian that studied cadavers.

Additions to that of course include culturing, computer models, clinical trials, etc...
