I think one of the issues almost every kid is concerned about is animal testing, or the use of human medications on lab rats or other animals with similar bodies. Who knows where to stand? Hopefully, I’ll be able to help give an unbaised fact sheet, so you can decide for yourself.Positives of Animal Testing:1. Advocates of Animal Testing believe that testing the medications on animals saves human lives. 2. Advocates of Animal Testing believe that it reduces human suffering.3. Advocates of Animal Testing believe that animals experience no pain while testing medication.Negatives of Animal Testing:1. Opponents of Animal Testing believe that testing medications on animals is inhumane treatment.2. Opponents of Animal Testing believe that testing medications on animals is morally wrong.3. Opponents of Animal Testing believe that humans have no dominion over animals.What do you think? I really don’t know where I stand on this issue, but I am very anxious to hear what you think.

  1. Great info!
    Great info! what do you think about this topic? May i suggest this for a class discussion topic?

  2. In my opinion…
    In my opinion, I think animal testing is not a very good idea. I know that there are some alternatives to test on rather than animals. Animal testing IS morally wrong and inhumane. While the animals might not feel pain, the chemicals could give them disease or serious deformity. Animals are just as good as humans. Great article!
