We cannot have peace among people whose hearts find delight in killing any living creature. The animals have all the same sensations of pain as human beings, and consequently endure as much pain when their body is hurt; but in their case the cruelty of torment is greater, because they have no mind to bear them up against their sufferings, and no hope to look forward to when enduring the last extreme pain.
It was also taught by Jesus - And Jesus did say unto them, Verily I say unto you,...

There is no reason to test on animals! The world has become a disgusting, cruel place!

If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.

Animals have done nothing to deserve this horrendous treatment!! INSTEAD test on prisoners and people who have committed crimes, It would a way for them to pay back their debt to society!!!

Marilyn! Not telling me anything new. For a face the cosmetic company I worked for said waaaaay back that they did not test on animals. I still have the video and never, ever, believed them. I hate this kind of stuff, but I love you and may see you tomorrow. hugs and kisses to you

Susan, so well put, and I was not familiar with that particular Biblical verse so it had a big impact on me. I knew only of the 'Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth' verse. Thank you so much for sharing your compassionate words and wisdom. I absolutely love animals and abhore any type of cruelty to living creatures, especially when it is inflicted on smaller victims by bigger perpetrators (except trees- don't fall in this category as they are large, but they support the...

Susan, so well put, and I was not familiar with that particular Biblical verse so it had a big impact on me. I knew only of the 'Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth' verse. Thank you so much for sharing your compassionate words and wisdom. I absolutely love animals and abhore any type of cruelty to living creatures, especially when it is inflicted on smaller victims by bigger perpetrators (except trees- don't fall in this category as they are large, but they support the life of many smaller creatures, including us, so cutting them down etc. is just as bad for the flow-on effects to other creatures). I have 8 pet guinea pigs and 2 bunnies so this particular issue really upsets me, I have 2 cats too and would love more animals but don't have the room. Here's a picture depicting the Biblical verse above: http://is.gd/NpqGSf God Bless you and may peace be the way forward for man all God's creatures.

Help our animals. You can start that process by shopping at places from this site: https://www.facebook.com/leapingbunny?fref=ts
or http://www.leapingbunny.org/indexcus.php. Leaping Bunny products DO NOT test on animals and they are amazing products.

How could women know about these sickening cruelties carried out on animals by multinationals such as L'oreal, Clinique just to name a few and still use these vile cosmetics to enhance them selves? What you are putting on your face and body is simply pain and suffering of animals, and that is the image you should see each time you use products from these cruel greedy filthy cosmetics companies who tortured animals for decades and still finds pleasure to continue with these unnecessary barbaric acts.

These methods are so outdated anyway. If some companies can market products without animal testing, SO CAN THE REST OF THEM!!!!

les firmes de cosmatiques doivent impérativement indiquer s'ils ont recours aux tests sur animaux; je veux la mention "NON TESTES SUR ANIMAUX"
