Experimenting is usually for the good of mankind,for we would not have things like "Penicillan" and such that would benefit us.My question is how far do we dare go into the shadow of God ,where is the line and have we crossed it as far as nature and God is concerned? Or have we crossed it and at what price?

I understand that for things like birth defects, it's not the person's fault...but for all the irresponsible and unhealthy lifestyle folks who wear out their own organs...hearts, liver, etc., I don't think animals should have to pay for that. Beiisdes, I've seen video footage where they kept a cow alive w/ no anesthesia to remove it's heart...Even if it were my own life, I don't feel that another creature deserves to be put through that kind of agony. If it's time to go, it's time to go. On to a fresh new body and new life!
