The Vivisection Scam (VIDEO)

The Vivisection Scam (VIDEO)

Every year, millions upon millions of primates, cats, dogs, pigs, rabbits, rodents and a myriad of other living creatures are held against their will and tested on in the most inhumane ways, without any regard to their well-being.

In these hidden laboratories, innocent animals are dissected, suffocated, starved, exposed to radiation, shocked, isolated, blinded, injected with lethal drugs, forced to inhale tobacco smoke and consume alcohol and drugs, given heart attacks, have their limbs severed and are forced to endure countless other tortures to “serve the purpose of science”.

Vivisection is a scam. It is unethical, unnecessary and unreliable. It is used greatly to pad the pockets of these ruthless animal abusers. Dr. Ray Greek, an anti-animal testing physician states, “Animal experimentation is not necessary. It is expensive. It is inaccurate. It is misleading. It consumes limited resources. And further, it is detrimental to the very species it professes to be working to help — humankind.” (Sacred Cows and Golden Geese, pg 223)

Up to 90% of test results gained through animal experimentation are literally thrown away because they’re found to be inapplicable to humans. 88% of doctors agree this practice is often misleading due to anatomical and physiological differences between species. Had animal test results been heeded, aspirin, penicillin, insulin and vital cancer treatments would never have been made accessible to the public.

Charles Mayo, physician and founder of the prestigious Mayo Clinic was quoted as saying, “I know of no achievement through vivisection, no scientific discovery that could not have been obtained without such barbarism and cruelty. The whole thing is evil.” (New York Daily News Mar. 13, 1961)

Even if testing on animals did yield consistent, relevant results, nothing justifies the absolutely savage abuse these animals endure at the hands of unfeeling humans. Don’t support animal exploitation in any form, for any purpose. Buy 100% cruelty-free products.

Lab = sadistic playground

I couldn't watch the video. My tolerance level for this kind of intentional inhumanity does not exist. Every day we hear and read about the violence to which we're exposed, over and over, desensitizing what should be our gift to all society - including animals, especially animals since they cannot speak for themselves. Desensitization? I DO NOT want anyone who has participated in vivisection to be a part of my medical care team. Could someone who inflicts that kind of suffering on animals possibly have compassion for me? No. I don't know how to stop animal abuse, whether it's by sick and sadistic individuals or by "medical research" teams. I sign petitions, send emails and make phone calls to legislators but it seems to only become worse.

This video is blocked in my country because of copy right laws! Am I reading this right? Somebody is worried about copy right laws instead of relieving the suffering & abuse of animals! Greed stops people from being human & doing the right thing! Who the hell is EMI? I remain disgusted.

No wonder so many human beings commit suicide. It could be because they see no future advancement for civilised behaviour and are ashamed to be human.

I like to point out to people that evidence of the lack of effectiveness (and dangers) of vivisection can be seen by the daily advertisements that can be seen on TV. There are an awful lot of medications that are later found to cause conditions ranging from reactions that mild to causing death.

We simple must abolish this insane practice.

This is the year 2012! We have stem cells now. HUMAN stem cells! Stop living in the stone age, and leave animals out of our health research and products!

Having the right to do something does not mean that doing it is right!
