Yes, animal testing is necessary for understanding the safety and proper dosages of new medicines and treatments. It would be dangerous and extremely unethical for scientists to test drugs on humans before making sure they are safe. Even though the testing might be harmful to the tested animal, I believe its sacrifice advances developments on medicine that could save millions of lives, both human and not.
No, and we should expand research into lab grown human cells for testing medicine. Cosmetic testing should be evaluated on the chemical level. Animal testing is okay for life saving technology as long as it won't negatively affect the animal.
Use the 3 “R’s” and focus on eliminating animal testing altogether. Ban animal testing on all cosmetics. Better regulation of facilities that use animal testing. Reduce animal testing to only when absolutely necessary, provide humane treatment.
