    I don't know how I feel about this. On the one hand it certainly is a good thing that animals will no longer be forced to suffer. On the other hand I'd rather have animals suffer than human beings. And I don't know enough about product testing to know whether animal testing is needed to make sure humans don't get hurt.

    Animal cruelty should either be legal for all, or illegal for all (citizens and corporations).

    Corporations shouldn't be unaccountable to laws based on morality simply because they want money.
     
  3. I think this is great . We are all animals and well past the dark ages where we stupidly believed that animals didn't have emotions or feelings.

    If we can't develop a product without testing on animals then we don't need it or aren't trying hard enough.



    My friend worked in a lab where they did medical experiments on animals. One doctor sewed a spounge into a dog's body to see what would happen. The dog wailed all day and all night too. Fuck that bullshit too while we are at it.

    I love animals, and I certainly oppose torturing animals. But how are we to supposed to test products which may have harmful effects on humans? Should we just test on humans? Or should we simply stop developing new products?

    You need to test a product test it on yourself.

    We need new federal standards on treatment of animals. It's a subject that is largely dominated/silenced by big corporations, but I really do think there would be broad bipartisan consensus towards stipulating some basic improvements to animal treatment, particularly in the area of meat, egg, and dairy farming. No more shoulder-to-shoulder clogged congestion in their housing, etc.

    Good.
    We should already have a pretty good idea of what chemical compounds are bad. Animals also aren’t always a good litmus for humans.
    Glad to hear this. Baby steps.

    There's plenty of test subjects in the prison industrial complex. Give 'em some early release and a pat on the back for doing society a solid.

    Posted a couple of these tracks in the political song thread. This band turned me into a vegetarian back in the day.

    Good. Next should be the outlaw of meat consumption and hunting of any sort.

    why mock this position? It's unrealistic to expect anytime soon, but it is what humanity should be working towards to minimize suffering and exploitation of others.

    IMO, a product isn't safe for public consumption unless it has been used to kill a thousand stray puppies.

    Once we're all safely adjusted to our new soy diets, we will finally have world peace

    Somehow I expect this will not include all of the medications we develope, especially those used in cancer treatments, which use animal testing as an extremely important step.

    I'm all for it. I completely despise animal cruelty in every possible way. It's really the only liberal viewpoint I have.

    I would prefer convicted rapists, pedophiles and murderers be tested on. 1. They deserve it. 2. The results will be far more valid when applied to humans.

    Most animals are worthless, so who cares if they're used as test subjects.
