Sadly, this won't stop these people. Only protests by animal rights activists and legislation protecting animals will end the horror.

Oh, it's a joke all right. About as funny as a rape joke, but it is a joke.

We should care for animals, not hurt them.

Duh! Soooooooooooooo tired of the old line..but it saves human lives. If human life was really, really so precious, why do we still have wars?

Another DUH! Are they testing on animals so people have jobs? IDIOTS! I have always said that testing should be done on prisoners. Murderers, animal and child abusers, rapist, the worthless pieces of S@@t in this world!

We already knew, because we use our heart and brain: we are not Mice. Period! We are humans, we get human diseases, we drink, smoke, drive cars etc, Mice don't. It's a matter of logic, beside a matter of ethic. Thanks for posting. I share and tweet

About time people are starting to wake up. Animals and people do not have the same anatomy, so testing on animals is stupid, cruel and useless. People hate Rats and yet millions of Rats have died for people in useless research. They should be respected and cared for, not tested on anymore and that includes all animals.

Another reason for vivisection to end...

Vivisection represents a dark chapter in human history and a gross violation of the Sacred Trust.

There is no reason to test on animals. If chocolate was tested on animals, then we wouldn't be heating it. Think of all the cures we are missing out on because they didn't test well on animals.

i am very suspicious of any medication. Any prescripion by my GP I will not take to the Pharmacy. The only pill I will ever take is Aspirin and some vitamin or mineral tablets to suit my needs.
