"Atrocities are not less atrocities when they occur in laboratories and are called medical research." —George Bernard Shaw

"I abhor vivisection. It should at least be curbed. Better, it should be abolished. 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." — Charles Mayo (founder of the Mayo Clinic)

I'm having problems with my lumbar slipped disks since 3 days...... also tonight I didn't sleep. I had to undergo 3 different injections/day, terrible pains, having problems in moving even in the bed, and walking & moving around with the crutches.......TODAY IT's EVEN WORSE........ I hope I don't have to go to the Hospital.........
Yesterday apart from injections, I went to a medical center where they did Ionoforesi and laser therapy.

BUT

South Africa will probably ban cosmetic testing on animals before the U.S. does. I was writing letters to legislators and companies when I was 13 years old (36 years ago) and the U.S. still has not banned cosmetic testing on animals.
