Again-the justification......"it's all in the name of Science"......allows these people to stick electrodes in a bunnies brain and measure the amount of hair spray it takes to cause death....And we start them YOUNG....with "dissections" in highschool.......WRONG!!!!!!

Oh what joyful people these researchers are! I wonder how they would like to die of the bends when the blood sort of boils! I'm told it is the most excruciating pain imaginable! What I wonder is the point of research in this area it's all pretty well documented and divers for example are well aware of the risks associated with compression sickness!

Hope they are successful with the charges, they was a place doing the same thing over here in the Uk but luckily the MP for Portsmouth got involved and helped to get it stopped. How many times do we have to prove to these people that you do not need to use animals,oh sorry I forgot it's about money and being seen to do stuff and worried the public will kick up a fuss if they don't do it and the thought of being sued. Some people have very foggy brains, they just can't see that animal testing is wrong and that there are better ways to go about projects. There are ways of doing tests for the bends without using animals I saw an article on it from the MP from here.
