needless animal tests October 25, 2004 6:56 PM

Hi everyone, I need some help and support to get tobacco companies like Phillip Morris to stop testing nicotine and cigarette smoke on animals, such as dogs, cats, monkeys, labs and rabbits. These tests are not required by law, but the government funds them with our tax dollars, killing thousands of innocent animals a year. Leading doctors and scientists say we know all of the effects of smoking, and have learned them by studying humans who smoke, not animals. Please sign my petition to save these innocent animals lives at: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/835586004 Thanks, Megan  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

No not at all.. in a perfect world there would be no animal tests, no animals eaten or worn for clothing, used in entertainment or dissected. Animals would be treated equally and fairly I just think of all the animal tests out there this one is pretty ridiculous, like testing lotions on animals, or products that go into stupid zip-lock bags. I don't think animal testing is ever necessary... after all, we are not identical to dogs or lambs, so we're not going to react the same way as they do, so I'm not quite sure what these tests get us anyway.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

then, just say it the way you're expecting it to be instead of giving a hand to your oppenents. Animals are not here to be eaten or tested on or whatever "necessary use" humans will find them... they are here to live a long life full of happiness not to be treated as properties.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
NEEDLESS ANIMAL TESTS November 03, 2004 10:02 AM

We all know that animal testing is caused by our government handing out big bucks to allow this to continue. We need to start at the "cause". How about someone making up a petition to the government demanding that funding to animal experiments stop.....we don't want our tax dollars spent in that manner and we have the final say as it is "OUR MONEY" they are using.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Dr Hadwen Trust - medical research WITHOUT animal testing December 03, 2004 2:18 AM

Animal tests will unfortunately continue because there is just too much money to be made out of it at the moment, and their excuse is that there are no viable alternatives. This is NOT true however, please visit -> http://www.crueltyfreeshop.com/drhadwen/ for information on alternative medical research available (methods such as computer modelling, using human tissue that has been donated by people undergoing surgery etc.) The possibilities are endless, but we must support people like Dr. Hadwen who see the need for the medical research to continue into cancer, Alzheimer's etc. wihtout the need to torture and kill thousands of intelligent, sentient animals. I buy all my toiletries and in fact everything I can from the cruelty free shop, knowing not only have animals NOT been harmed in the making of my perfume/hair-dye (whatever it may be) but I am actually supporting the work of a trust that means less and eventually NO animals will be harmed for the sake of medical research again.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
