Animal testing is painful and causes much fear. Animals can’t tell you how the testing makes them feel. The worst thing is animal testing is not humane or ethical. Animals are treated as though they are mindless slabs of meat with a heartbeat, but they are much like people. They think, feel, they have joy, pain and fear. They get hungry, tired and sick. All animal life has communication, reproduction, and death. What makes them different? Well we aren’t able to understand much of their communication, in nature it’s survival of the fittest or the one with the biggest tribe, and humans think animals have no soul. Quite frankly I’ve never understood that. Many humans don’t believe in souls at all, so how are animals any different? They are different in the fact we are self aware and understand we are just a speck in the cosmos... but because of that we are responsible for protecting all animal life. We know better. Animal testing is barbarous and it is torture. Do we need to torture other life forms to give our own meaning, or to feel like masters over others? It’s not necessary, it’s vile, painful and absolutely not necessary anymore.
