There were three really nice beagles turned in to Osceola County Dog Pound by Amish families, who give them permission to sell them to research. If they arent taken by Thursday, they will be on the research truck. If any rescues want them pulled, let me know. I can drive up there and get them but will need to meet a transport or have somewhere for them to go as I cant afford any vetting and most boarding places want them to be vetted first. But, if you will rescue them, we'll work something out.

Chris

Please repost as much as possible so it will somehow reach a beagle rescue.

The Ten Biggest Lies Vivisectors Tell

Vernon Coleman






Vivisectors constantly lie. It is what they do best. After all, their working lives are built on an entirely false premise: that animal experiments will provide information of value to doctors.

Here are the ten biggest lies vivisectors tell:

Lie No 1: Animal Experiments help people.
Truth: No animal experiment ever conducted has ever helped any human patient. Not one human life has ever been saved by vivisection. No animal experiment conducted in the future will help human patients. Proof of this is available in my books. (No vivisector will debate the value of vivisection with me.)

Lie No 2: Drug Companies are forced to perform animal experiments by law.
Truth: They aren't. There are no laws forcing drug companies to conduct animal experiments. Evidence for this is in my book Animal Experiments: Simple Truths.

Lie No 3: Doctors support animal experiments.
Truth: They don't. The majority of doctors want animal experiments stopped. The evidence for this (first published in the European Medical Journal) is included in my books Why Animal Experiments Must Stop and Animal Experiments: Simple Truths.

Lie No 4: Animals who are tortured and killed in animal experiments don't suffer.
Truth: The animals who are used in laboratory experiments suffer enormously. Anyone who doubts this should study the evidence in my books.

Lie No 5: The number of experiments conducted is going down.
Truth: It isn't. The number of experiments on animals is going up.

Lie No 6: There is scientific evidence showing that animal experiments are of value.
Truth: There is no scientific evidence showing that animal experiments are of value. The Department of Health in London was invited by the British House of Lords to submit a list of scientific papers `proving' the value of animal experiments. The House of Lords then asked me to comment on the papers which were submitted. I destroyed the validity of all the submitted papers in my report. (You can read my report in full on this website.)

Lie No 7: Vivisectors claim that their experiments on animals enable drug companies to produce drugs which are safe for human use.
Truth: If an experiment shows that a drug does not cause problems when given to an animal the drug company will claim that this proves that the drug is safe for people. But if an experiment shows that a drug does cause problems when given to an animal the drug company will ignore the results on the grounds that animals are different to people. My book Betrayal of Trust contains a lengthy analysis naming many drugs which are sold for human use despite the fact that they cause serious problems (such as cancer) when given to animals. My book Animal Experiments: Simple Truths contains a summary.

Lie No 8: Vivisectors insist that some experiments on animals produce useful results.
Truth: Vivisectors admit that they don't know which experiments could be of value and might be relevant and not misleading. If you do ten experiments and five might be useful and five are utterly useless then ALL are utterly useless because you don't know which five results are useable and which five aren't. This is one of the major flaws of vivisection. Vivisectors either aren't bright enough to understand this or else they choose to ignore the logic.

Lie No 9: Vivisectors claim that animals are not sentient.
Truth: There is ample evidence that this is a lie in my books such as Animal Rights: Human Wrongs.

Lie No 10: Laboratory animals are well looked after.
Truth: Animals in vivisection laboratories are kept in tiny cages (the sizes of `approved' animal cages are given in my book Animal Experiments:Simple Truths). Three quarters of all animal experiments are performed without any anaesthetic.

Conclusion: Vivisection is a destructive pseudo-science. Animal experiments are performed by psychopaths. The sole reason for vivisection is money. Anyone who supports vivisection is a liar or a fool. Or both.


Several of Vernon Coleman's book on animal experimentation are available free on this website for downloading. All Vernon Coleman's books are available from the shop on this website. Bulk copies of Animal Experiments: Simple Truths are available at special prices from Publishing House, Trinity Place, Barnstaple, Devon EX32 9HG, England.
